Gone Dream Chasing

   These maybe short and sweet over the next couple of weeks.  I am taking an online course for marine biology soon to be joined by an archaeology one at the end of the month. 
   They are both free and I can get a certificate at the end if I want.  I am excited because I love both subjects.  I had hopes of becoming a marine biologist or archaeologist when I grew up.
   I tried going back to a serious school for my degree in archaeology.  Paid a few thousand dollars too (well spent as it is a very good school and I did learn a lot).  The problem was me.  Working full time (with no set schedule) and having serious computer issues…. I just couldn’t keep up.  I felt very guilty as my parents had helped me pay for it to help me go for my dream.
   I’m hoping that I can follow thru with these courses because there will be less pressure.  They were free so if I mess up no worries. 
   I’m on to my second week now.  I stressed hard over my first quiz Monday.  Part of that was time.  I was only going to be taking archaeology but this popped up and I had to jump at it.  The course started last Monday.  I signed up Thursday.  Thank goodness I had the weekend off!  I got 8 videos watched and two papers read.  Not to mention a bunch of mini quizzes….  My main quiz was Monday.  Well had to be done by 9am Monday.  I got one chance (you actually have three) because I started my quiz 15 minutes before it was due.  Found out at the last minute that we were in the same time zone.  Sigh.
   But week one is under my belt and I’m having a good time with it.  Hope I can keep up with both classes.  The archaeology class should be a little easier as the reference books are the same as my text books from university.  🙂
   I need to get ready for work.  If I fall behind with this you now know why.  I’m off chasing dreams!
