I decided to take this class several days after it had begun. I enjoy the type of work the class covers so was not worried about taking it online while living 3 hours away. Well, I quickly began to feel overwhelmed as I tried to catch up the mid-week assignment and do week 1. I became confused and worried. To make things worse, I am taking 2 additional online classes and have a job. I just kept falling further and further behind and getting more and more confused. I think it would be easier if I were on campus and could take advantage of the tutoring that is available. Not wanting to give up, I sat down and powered through everything. Google is now one of my BFFs.
I found it challenging to learn all of the different platforms and do all of the assignments but I am definitely learning a lot. I am going to keep going, power through and do my very best. I will push away the anxiety and focus on one assignment at a time until I have completed everything this course requires.
I did have a lot of fun with every assignment this week. I love photography and enjoyed telling stories with my pictures. I was able to spend time through photos with my adorable dogs. This really drove home the important role photographs play in our lives. Learning new techniques was awesome. I can’t wait to practice more of what I learned. This was a fun (and challenging) week.
