Liberry Stuf

The nice thing about taking an online class is that I can sit here and blog while I'm in class. Multi-tasking, baby. The on-site class, on the other hand, blows massive donkey balls. 6-9:45 on Friday night and 8-6 on Saturday. Thank Jebus it's only 3 weekends and 2 of them are finished. Grad school isn't hard, but it's an assload of work. My web class is a 3-page paper every week and then a paper of at least 30 pages by the end of the semester. I have about 13 pages of the big paper finished, but every time I sit down to work on it, I write a paragraph and then think, "I can't take this anymore!" I suppose if I write one paragraph per day I'll have it done by the end of the semester though. Next semester I have to take Cataloging and Classification, and it's on-site, so it'll be another 3 weekend dealie. 14 hours in a 24-hour span on learning to catalog? Kill me now. I'm only taking one class at a time from now on though.

One of my professors makes fun of undergrads a lot. I know I was an idiot when I was an undergrad (I still am), but I don't think I was that immature.

Happy banned book week! Read a banned book this week: Animal Farm, the Bible, Call of the Wild, Lolita, The Lorax, Mein Kampf, Nineteen eighty-four, Tom Sawyer, Uncle Tom's Cabin...just to name a few. I'm reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Here is a list of the 100 most frequently challenged books from 1990-2000. I've only read about 13 of them, so I better get reading. Not that I feel the need to read The New Joy of Gay Sex (not that there's anything wrong with that) or What's Happening to My Body?

for the 30 pager...write it single spaced..then copy it all and go to double space. In theory you only need to do less than 15 pages single spaced and then WHAMMO. I did that all the time in college and I'd have 7-8 page papers to other classmates 3-4. Then again..I rule.

Weekend classes blow!

I've tried March of the Sea's single-spaced theory once. It doesn't work for me, since I'm always too aware of it being single-spaced, that I opt for it to be shorter.

Good luck!

How many people are in these classes that you are taking?

Is The New Joy of Gay Sex different than The Old Joy of Gay Sex?

Thanks, Renee.

It's my duty now, Shan!

March, I always write my papers single spaced and then make them double. It's a psychological thing. Luckily it is 30 pages double, so I only need to crank out about 17 single.

Woah, Dim! I think you better ask a medical professional about that one...

rc, yes they do! Who wants to spend a weekend in class?!

There are about 7 people in the web class and 40 in the on-site class. I've never had gay sex, so I couldn't tell you!
