Here’s, what happens when I have to be put in a group for my online classes. I take the imitative, write the first email saying hello to everyone and say, “let’s talk tomorrow and see what we can come up with”. I’ll check my email the next day and the partner or partners have already done 90% of the project. This is why I would so rather just not work in groups or have partners for online classes. If we get graded individually for separate parts of one main project, cool, I can handle that. But I do not want to be responsible for anyone’s grade at all. I don’t think that’s fair at all, especially when you have your own grade to worry about.
I’ve been talking about this class of mine on my Suzanne Librarian site. I have partner work that needs to be done and, yeah, I’m just not good at that. Sitting with someone at school or work and doing a project is fine. But when you’re working online, it gets really hard to have communication. Plus, it’s an online class. Online classes are for people who want to sit at their desk, work, get it over with and move on to the rest of their daily chores. I’m so, so glad I’m graduating. I have three months to the day until my library science classes are over. Hooray!
Anyway, I’ve been keeping up Suzanne’s Foodie Blog and it’s been a lot of fun. It’s a simple, easy to update project that I like a lot.
It’s Friday again and we’ll be having our Pizza Party for Two. I think I’ll have Steve watch Sixteen Candles finally. He needs to experience the cultural icons that Farmer Ted and Long Duck Dong are.
This weekend will be a local trip around town. I’ll make sure to upload all of my pictures to my Flickr too. I’ve been neglecting that a bit since I’ve been posting most things in Facebook. I’ll get back to it though.

It's been windy and rainy here in England. We had to put putty on the bedroom window because it was making a horrible buzzing sound all night. We also kept hearing what sounded like a window banging or a tree branch hitting the side of the building. Finally Steve went outside to find a little gate door that was slamming in the wind. Needless to say after our DIY work we were able to sleep much easier last night. Jake even slept at Steve's feet. I think they've bonded.
Since the weather's been a bit unwelcoming, I've been in the flat for most of the week. I had a bit of a hard night last night when my professor told me that I'd get a low score if I didn't redo my school project. I ended up changing it and resubmitting it. I'm going to be so glad to get these classes over with in May. I know that some librarians said their classes were easy but mine are just tough. Tons of busy work and projects. How I miss the days of good old reading and writing papers as an English student.
This weekend will be an adventure though. Steve and I plan on visiting Durham Saturday, then on Sunday he'll show me the easy way to get to Retail World. I have got to learn how to get around here. Granted, it's only been two weeks but it's so hard to not just be able to get in the car and go somewhere when I want to. Until then I have dishes to do. It's pizza party night. We can keep watching Sherlock and playing Little Big Planet 2 - both presents to Steve from Santa.
Speaking of that; we still have to take the Christmas tree down.
