Reflections on Week 1

1. There aren't really that many factors I can say will affect my participation in this class. The only thing that should slow me down is my own laziness. I'm not proud to admit that I am a very lazy person, and it should show in the quantity of my work. If I were less lazy, then I would be doing every single assignment no matter how small and seemingly insignificant, or, as Mr. Krabs from Spongebob Squarepants would say, "even the most rediculous request." I have access to a computor and the internet, so I can check that off the list. The only other thing that can set me off is cross country. That will only last until early November, so after that, I should have an empty schedule to devote to class.

2. Ugh, number two... I really don't like this question, because it makes the person answering feel like they have to remember a cool story that lead to their own decision making, when the reality of it is that how you learned whatever it was you learned does not matter. What does matter is what you do with it. If you can apply your knowledge to a real situation, then you know that you have succeeded in education. Better yet, if you can teach more people to apply these same skills and apply them to a real situation, THEN you have succeeded. I realized that I kinda dodged the question, but the truth is, I can't really remember any expeiences in my education I would give the title of "awesome" to. To clairify, I am not just thinking of only those times sitting in a class waiting to leave, although those can be important too. I just can't think of anything right now.

3. My concerns will be getting over my laziness, as stated earlier. I am excited to finally have a class that should hold excitement for me almost every day. I heard that a lot of people had problems handling the class, as I'm sure I will. If I can start using all these online tools to make my life easier, then I'll know this class was successful for me.
