Final Week

Hello Everyone,

Well, this nine weeks flew right by! I have learned a lot in this class! I realize how much work goes into a research paper and how your peers and professor can be very helpful in this journey. I appreciated the feedback since it helped me see my paper through someone else's eyes. I never realized how much work goes into a research paper. My biggest issue was finding good information on my topic. Research takes time, especially when there is some not so good information out there. I enjoyed learning how to weed out some of the extra information not needed in a paper. I think my biggest fear was taking too much out and not leaving enough! If I spoke to a future student, I would tell them to rely on your KU Handbook because it will be very helpful. Trust in your instincts and do not be afraid to ask for help or have someone give their opinion on your paper. They are only there to help.

I hope everyone enjoys their time off between terms! You have all earned it! I have enjoyed class with all of you and I feel I have gotten to know each of you a little better through your blog! I hope to see you in my future classes! Professor Barb, thank you for all of your help this term, you were a tremendous help!

Have a great week! Best Wishes!

The End Is Near!!!

Hey Everyone,

Well, we are in the home stretch!! We are in week nine and I am feeling the stress. I have two papers due, as I am sure many of you do and it seems like there is so much to do. I enjoyed working with all my classmates through this class. It has been an interesting learning experience which I was nervous about at first but you have all made it a lot easier. I enjoy writing on the blog and reading everyone else's blog. I do not know about any of you but I am over thinking everything. I feel all the feedback I have learned from this class has helped me become a better writer. I am looking forward to a little down time when our classes end this term. Are any of you doing anything special to relieve your stress during this week? Is anyone doing anything special when classes are over for this term?

I appreciate all of your comments on the blog and all of your help in class. This is probably one of our last blogs for this class and I can walk away saying that I enjoyed this term even though at times I was not sure I would make it...LOL Anyway, thank you everyone! I hope your coming terms at Kaplan are great! Good luck!

Blog Experience

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I spent time with family at their camp which had no internet service. They thought it did until I got there and realized there was none to be had. You never know how dependent you have become on the internet until you have to be without it for a couple of days. LOL. I still had a good time and found plenty of other things to do but in the back of my mind I was worrying about all the things I had to do on the internet that was not getting done. Now that I am home, all I think about is catching up! LOL It has been so hot here that I do not mind staying inside with the air conditioning doing some class work.

One of the topics listed for us to talk about from class was whether we would continue our blog after class. I like blogging and I find it can be very therapeutic. However, I am not sure I will continue on this blog site. I think that I do a little blogging everyday when I write on Facebook. Don't get me wrong I like writing on here but this is more for my class than for my everyday friends. I like that I get feedback and people comment on here but I feel a lot of people will not continue to keep their blogs updated. I do enjoy this experience for this class and it has helped me to get to know my classmates better. So, I am glad I did this!
How about you? Will you continue to blog at this site after class is over?

I can be found blogging everyday on Facebook. If you want to continue after class you can find me there at

I have found blogging for this class and reading everyone else's blogs to be a nice addition to class. It has been great!
