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?
