Thought I posted that last entry last night....guess not.

This am I am up and checking my assignments, good thing cause I have 6 chapters to read and a 250 word treatment plan to finish by Monday.  I major goofed by not checking earlier, cause I wrote assignments on my calendar right away (and cause my printer was down and I usually put assignments for all classes on one document.)  Anyway, luckily I have the time to devote to this though it kinda blows up plans I had for more cleaning and organizing.  Maybe I'll do that between bouts of writing...my brain goes on overload anyway.

This class is more insane than most classes I have taken, I chalk it up to the instructor being German.  There is an online assignment every 2 weeks, progressively harder with expectations that we also read and  comment on the posts of our fellow students.   

First assignment:  a treatment plan on a domestic violence victim, including assessment, crisis intervention and initial, middle and termination phase of for short term individual psychotherapy.  This is considered 1.5 hours of work.  It's good that I can talk to my fellow students and find out how long this stuff takes them because if I thought I was the only one spending days on this stuff, I would seriously know that I was incompetent.

I love this stuff and I am tired of the pace.  Can't wait to be able to really get into one subject in the rich way I would like....not like the thesis where I am supposed to contribute some new work, but just to learn and absorb and keep following what interests me the most.

Ok-off to the salt mines!

That should probably be the motto of the 21st century: "I love this stuff and I'm tired of the pace."

I can relate to this, too, from a different discipline, of course.
