Ready (Unit 10)

I am sad to see this term at an end. This has been my favorite term at Kaplan. Both of my professors were exceptional,this is the term where I have learned the most, and I feel matured the most as a student.

I can't believe I'll have my degree by the end of the year! However, I am tied as to how to use my degree. I don't know if I should search for a job at a hospital, practice or clinic using my office management degree. I don't know if I should try medical transcription or medical billing and coding at home. I feel I can be disciplined enough to work at home, as online classes have taught me that.

I guess I will have to weigh out the pros and cons when the time comes. I am hoping to find some flexibility using my degree. I just know that now that I do have the flexiblity, I dont want to lose it. I see how it has helpled my son by being able to take him to doctor appointments, therapy, karate, and swimming. My son is steadily progressing, and I'm not going to hinder his progress.

I just hope I will have a few options in the future that will allow me to use my degree and be there for my son. My son is what is most important.

At the end... (unit 9)

I always hate the end of my terms. I am a baby, and I feel sad. It's like once you've made a connection with your classmates and teacher it's time to move on. However, I was so ready to move on away from Algebra!

I really can't get over how fast time has gone by. I can't believe it will be a year in June since I've been in school.

I really can't say enough about how I love my online classes. However, I believe this term is the one I enjoyed the most.

This term was the hardest for me, and not because it was hard as in difficult for me to understand. It was the hardest because I really had to put more time and more thought in both my classes this term.

I really can't believe all the countless articles I've read between the research in both my classes. However, it wasn't a headache for me. I thoroughly enjoyed all the research and reading.

I think I may have over-stressed with this term because I wanted to do so very well, and I wanted my papers to be the best I could possibly do.

I know there was so much more room for improvement, but I ran out of time.

I think that's another reason why this term was also so much harder for me. My son has swimming after school 4 days a week, and he has karate. Then there has been my doctor appointments, and his doctor appointments.

It was difficult, but I felt that this term I learned the most, I enjoyed it the most, and I also matured as a student the most.

I wonder which of my classmates I will have again...

I will miss you Professor Sullivan. I loved your class! Keep doing what you're doing! :)
