An email to my classmates
Greetings from Salt Lake City!
I’m hanging out in the hotel today, working on homework. I am thinking of you, friends in Cohort 2, as I take a study break and head out for dinner.
I have yet to read my Catholic colleges chapters, but got through the other readings. I committed myself to carefully read everything assigned for EDL701 for week 4 because I failed in doing that for week 3 and was unable to dig into the topics with Mary in our last class. She deserves better, so I promised myself to read, read, read. I also committed to taking notes on The Chronicle and Inside Higher Ed articles because I am lousy with remembering what I read when we have our Saturday morning chats. My ethics essay is 10 pages long — I really need to edit it, but I don’t feel *too* bad because, Dan, I imagine your essay is twice as long. ha!
I have posted my discussions and selected my citation management tool (citeulike). I have been using it for years so am probably taking the easy way out, but hey, it works for me so why change? I finished reading Glesne ch 7 but haven’t cracked open Patton ch 8. I did lug it all the way out here so will curl up under the patio umbrella with that one tomorrow. I haven’t done my annotated bib yet, but I have some articles saved to review.
I hope you are well and making progress on readings and assignments. It is not easy to fit it all in. I am struggling this week and if it weren’t for my being away from home I would be unable to dedicate this much time to homework today. If you are struggling, don’t feel bad – do what you can, try to push yourself a little but don’t push yourself over the edge.
Your pal, Carrie
