Monica Wants It: A Lifestyle Blog: I’ve been in a funk.

Saturday, September 5, 2009

I’ve been in a funk.

A blogging funk. A life funk. A work funk.

I promise I will be back to normal soon. I have no excuse now that I am not taking a single class. Yup, Monica dropped out of her Masters program. Why? Online classes suck, that’s why. I was essentially teaching myself, and that is no fun. Part of the reason I enjoyed my time at the oh-so-freakin-fabulous University of Texas at Austin is because I learned a TON. A LOT. OH MY GOSH SO MUCH! Seriously.

An insane amount.

Not to say that I loved every single class (yeah, I’m talking about you biology of plants class…which was at 8 am!), but I loved that my professors held Ph.D’s in their area and they were amazingly passionate about it. They were. It was CRAZY!

Not so much with online classes. At all. They’re like, “Read/listen to this powerpoint. I sound like I’d rather be picking lint from towels as I narrate it, but it’s what you get kid. Riveting, I know. Make sure to take that quiz by midnight. I’ll be eating twinkies in my Lexus.”

No thanks, I’ll pass. So, until I can go to “normal” classes, I decided to put my Masters dreams on hold. Will I regret this later? Who knows. Everything happens for a reason, and now I can focus my time on my Etsy store, losing weight, and just being a 24-year-old newlywed.

Be back soon. Peace, love, and twinkies.

Notice I have my Longhorn shirt on? HOOK ‘EM HORNS! Who are playing on pay-per-view. What the heck man? Isn’t my student loan debt enough to warrant me watching the game for FREE?!

But that’s another post.

  2. This too shall pass. Look at the bright side, at least you aren't that scorpion that you found the other day and you are indeed smart enough to know that there isn't a little man working inside the redbox machine!

    Some people can deal with online classes and some it just isn't for them. I like them, but my step daughter hates them. I found that I developed a deeper relationship with my profs because when we talked, it was all about me. (not those stolen moments after a lecture with 10 other idiots waiting their turn behind me)

    Get out of your funk and paint something girl. Just don't use that Tiffany blue anymore:)

  3. Please get out of your funk soon. A) Because I live vicariously through you.
    and
    B) Because I want you to feel better.

  4. Im in a funk myself so I feel your pain. I hope you're out of shortly.

    PS: Am I the only one who thinks of Tina Fey when looking at your blog header?

  5. I know what you mean -online classes are definitely not the same as being in an actual classroom.

    P.S. Your dog is so cute!
