Today’s post at Academy Caritas lists some free online courses that look very good. I’m considering using some of those to get back into the groove of school until I can go back “for real.” I’m in a good mood, as I’m at the girl’s place and I got to see Steven today. Happy day!
I’ve been looking into online education lately, beyond my experiment with learning programming (which is still ongoing). These are some of the resources I’ve identified. They’re all free, although you don’t get college credit for the courses. Coursera — courses taught by instructors various top universities. Khan Academy — video courses on every topic under […]
It has been some time since I posted much here, so I figure that I should do a bit of an update. It isn’t as if anything has changed in any big way. Sam has the same nice and stable job, and we’re still very happily together after—oh, wow, it’s twelve years this month. Katie is […]
I adore LifeHacker. They have a sweet list of free online college courses!
Registration closes tomorrow, so I have to decide before the end of the day whether or not I’m taking classes for summer semester or not. Bah. I want a break, but if I’m not in school my student loans come out of deferment. I’ve been reading–and loving–Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson books. They’re a lot of […]
That’s pretty much my opinoin today. Blah. Blah blah blah. I couldn’t wake up enough to drive safely, so I missed an appointment that will take months to reschedule. For every assignment we do in the tech writing course I’m taking, we turn in a rough draft and receive two peer reviews and feedback from […]
Back when the Meisha Merlin warehouse was being cleaned out, Sam picked up a copy of The Sword and the Dragon, first volume of the Epic Tales of the Five by Diane Duane that MM put out. It contains The Door Into Fire and The Door Into Shadow. I’ve wanted my own copies of the […]
I’m working on my final project for the technical writing course, which is a comparison of cohousing developments to single-family and more traditional multi-family housing. I’m finding it difficult to find any of the books I want to use as references in the library (school or two counties). Do any of you who are local […]
I finally got the grades from the first technical writing assignment I turned in last week, and the peer reviews I did on two of my classmates’ rough drafts. I got full points for all of them! I was worried about one of the peer reviews, because the person chose to do a set of instructions […]
I took my management final and turned in my peer review for the humanities class, so I am finished! I suppose this is my spring break, then. All the way ’til Sunday, when the next classes start.
