Disaster averted

I've been working at attempting to control my rising panic about this course.

I've not come anywhere close to actually learning anything.

I skim the readings, listen to the audio lectures, and then cherry-pick through all the stuff, and so far (touch wood) have, somehow (I think the marker is exceedingly generous) managed to get sufficient marks.

And even though it seems like I'm doing a lot of studying, I don't think I'm actually absorbing anything.

I haven't submitted last week's assignment (for a fee of $20, plus GST, I can submit the first three assignments up to a week late. Yes, I will be writing a cheque for $63 shortly. Just like I do every time I take a course).

I thought that I had an assignment due this Wednesday (without the grace period) and that meant that somehow, in two evenings, I had to complete 40 multiple choice questions, two computer questions and several memos/case studies. In other words, two assignments.

Never mind that I haven't done the computer illustrations actually showing me how to use the software (but I've installed it. Small victories, people).

Just for kicks, I checked my calendar. Then confirmed on the web-site. Assignment four isn't due until May 14.

Whew! I'm going to do those illustrations now. With a glass of w(h)ine in my hand.

Does this mean we don't get to see you tonight?
'cause that would make me SAD!
