Just Letting You Know...

Whew!  It's been a long day and I was tired before I even left the house.  It was just one of those days.  My workout at the gym was exceptionally tough and left me feeling drained and out of sorts.  I wanted a nap soooo much, but my son called and I hadn't talked to him for a week or so.

I went straight from work to my seminary class, Spiritual Foundations.  It's taught via Skype.  Technology is great.  When it works.  Tonight, it didn't.  We lost over an hour of class time while they tried to get it working properly.  In the end, one man wasn't able to join in at all and the other connections were....not great.  We could see and hear one man who was on his own computer.  We could hear the instructor and the participants with him, but we couldn't see them.  All we got done was introducing ourselves and going over the syllabus.

That turned out to be a good thing, though.  It is still a LOT of work, but once Dr. Guy explained about each project I felt a good bit easier.  It's going to be a challenge, but I'm not scared to death any more.  In fact, I'm looking forward to it and what we're going to be learning and I am sure I will be sharing a lot with you in the coming weeks.

When I consider going back for a second master's, I think of three things: the cost, the work (I'm so tired, I can't imagine), and the travel and time away from home.

Skype will be swell, I hope!

I am glad that you are not scared about it anymore. I know you are going to love it.

I haven't used Skype, so don't know much about it.
I hope it works out for you.

Ellen...All of those things are definitely considerations. My plate is so full right now it's ridiculous.

Rochelle...I really think I am. Turns out this class is about building our spiritual foundation...or for the most part, prayer.

Michelle...This is my first experience with it and I'm not impressed but they say they will have it working next week.
