  1. Congrats Sea!!! That's awesome 🤸‍♀️ ✨ I will have two Native American Studies classes - one on films and another literature class. I've already read all the books but two for the lit class, so that helps.
  2. YAY! Congrats! What are you taking next semester? My grads are in and A's in both.
  3. Well I was lazy over the weekend, so writing the paper today. Weekends are just too entertaining with everyone home 🙂
  4. I have one paper to write but it's only 15 pages, so I can knock that out tomorrow. I already have the notes from all the books, I just have to write it up. Then...freeeeeedom! Till January anyway 🙂
  5. well, i just turned in the last thing for my online class. The final project isn't due till next week - we have this week and next to do any revisions we want, but I sent it in yesterday. Today, I did the last discussion posts and that is it! I have one more book to read, and final paper for the independent study to finish it out.
  6. OMG Ethel, hugs and best wishes. I hope he is recovering well. Will the prof give you some leeway on due dates? I should think this definitely qualifies. As for me, I turned in the project, and last week did the peer reviews. I"ve been pretty lazy over Thanksgiving, but after the whirlwind, I needed it. I have one more book to read, and a final paper. And, as Sassenach said, the thought of the winter break makes me giddy too 🙂
  7. I got buried. Final project I thought know...the final thing?The draft is due Nov. 9th and as of a week and a half ago, I hadn't started. The final version isn't due till the end but we are apparently going to do peer reviews on 2 others, then have time to revise. Stuff like that never sneaks up on me but sure did this time ?

    Do you use Mac or Windows? Scrivener has a free trial for Nano on Mac and the Windows Version 3 beta is free as well (download from the L&L forum). I use both and can save the project to Dropbox, then work on whichever machine I need to, or my Mac laptop. If you are on Windows, take a look at Atomic Scribbler. It's free and the chapter structure is very similar to Scrivener but without so many behind the scenes abilities as Scrivener has. Very easy to learn and get to the writing. I use OneNote for class notes but don't free write anything in it. Dabble ( also has Mac and Windows versions and a free Nano trial. It also uses the same chapter/scene breakdown that you can do in OneNote but comes with a plotting board and can be used either through the downloaded app or via the website and stays synced up between the two.
  9. BBL said it perfectly. I much prefer in-person classes. I feel really disconnected this semester - one online class and one independent study. It's awesome to sit around a big table with other grad students and really dissect the week's material. I Agree though. I HATE group projects.
  10. I miss seeing people in person too! I have an online class this semester and an independent study and I feel a little disconnected. At least we have a few get-togethers and such but I miss the in-class discussions.
  11. HEre they tend to go over the syllabus in-depth for the first class as well, especially undergrad classes. I think it may be a little cya on the professor's part. Everyone is made aware on day one what is expected, so no claims later on of "Well I didn't know that!". This way they have it in print and have been told directly. Our grad classes, we tend to skim the syllabus, since it's generally 'read a book a week and write a final paper and we'll discuss all this every week'.
  12. Well I've started, one week in, and went from do-nothing summer to 110 mph ? Lots of reading as usual, but so far so good! HOw're things going for all of you?
  13. Classes start today here but I don't have anything on Mondays. This semester I have and independent study on Native American literature and film, and the other is Federal MNative American Law and policy. The independent study only has a solo meeting each week with the professor, but he's teaching an undergrad class in literature so I'll be siitting in on that as I like.
  14. yay! That's good! Glad the first round went well.
  15. I have a history of the west (western US) class and settlement geography, which also covers the western US. Both are the usual 3 hour/once a week classes. I'm doing a medical terminology class online on the side - it's dipping my toes into the medical assistant field, which the college here teaches. It's sort of a backup marketable skill while job hunting after my PhD. ?
