This is Sara’s get her shit together weekend. I think if I can make sure that I start my school work on Saturday, then it will really help me throughout the week, so I am not getting it done last minute.

Also, the last class I need starts on Thursday and I still haven’t decided whether to wait until May spring term or just rip the bandaid off and get it done.

Tom votes get it done.

I’m just concerned that if I do wait, then that semester will transition back to on-campus classes, and then I’ll be screwed. That’s just not an option for me.

Interesting story that goes along with that same idea.

In one of my classes, we had to do an introductions thing on the class discussion board, and I really felt like I was going to be the oldest in the class.

95% of the women in the class were over 40 which shocked me.

It’s like the pandemic made a lot of us “older” women realize that we wanted to do more with our lives, while also giving us access to online classes that we wouldn’t have been able to attend if they were on campus because our life schedules and responsibilities wouldn’t allow it.

It was an interesting thing to see how there might have been a positive side to all of this crap.

  1. Dear Sara, I truly believe that having options for learning on a distance is great for everyone who has to work as well, and/or combine study with other committments. I started with a part-time, on a distance PhD in Educational Sciences when I was in my late 40s. I hope to complete it next year, when I will turn 57! And I am for sure not the only one, in my program, to not do a PhD straight after a Master’s degree, and many others struggle as much as you and I with finding time and space to dedicate to studying. Good luck to you! By the way, I teach at Utrecht University in the Netherlands: it is great to see that youposted the link to a blog about Utrecht, it is really a great city (and only 20 minutes by train from Amsterdam). Love

    • Thank you for much for this. And congratulations to being almost done, that’s a huge accomplishment! Utrecht looks like an absolutely beautiful city. You are lucky to be able to spend time there. We don’t have beautiful cities like that here. Everything is much to new.
