College Semester Completed

I just finished my first semester of college. I know I did well in my English course, my other two classes are questionable. One of them was a one credit course, and while I like the topic and information, the professor wanted perfection. I plan on taking the course again in the future, I passed it but only got a C for the course. I want to take it again as there is an extra class that continues the information and it’s something I’m interested in writing about, so I think it would be of benefit to get a higher grade.

I also took a course on College Success and would recommend anyone in any walk of life to purchase and read/study the textbook that we used for the class. You might want to wait and get the next edition, though, as there is a glitch in one of the chapters of the second edition. Other than that, it’s a great book. It discusses studying, annotations, listening skills, and having a better memory. It also discusses how to manage money, getting a new job, time management, and the list continues.

We only read and discussed a portion of the book, and even though the idea is to help students succeed in college, I think it’s a great book to help each person succeed in life, in any endeavor.

The cost of the book at the college I attended is $50.00. That may seem like a lot, but if it helps you succeed in life, then it’s well worth the money and effort to read it.

Time Issues

I had hoped to post more often than this, but I began college this fall and even though I’m only taking six credit hours, I’m still figuring out the whole ‘college scene’ along with work and everything else.

I knew that the courses would be compressed into a shorter amount of time than when I was in school many years ago, but I’d guess for most students just beginning their college career knowing it and experiencing it are two different things. I’m taking online courses and can’t imagine having to drive back and forth and sitting in lectures, although I’m sure I will be doing that sometime in the future. I’m hoping that by then I’ll have someone I can trust that can run/co-ordinate our business for me and then I can devote more time to my studies.

I’ve thought of several other topics to write about and I’d like to begin sharing about the different sites that pay for articles. Right now I should be trying to write a paper or two, not due for a couple of days, but I don’t want to put them off till the last minute.
