Well, I'm back at uni this year. While working 6 1/2 hours a day. And teaching kids church. And going to normal church. And trying to write 3 books. And read 186 books this year. And memorise more psalms. And go to Uganda (definitely in June, and hopefully again later).
So, yeah, I'm mad. What'd you expect? The blog is called Sam-Is-Mad, after all.
Anyway, I'm doing the version of my course for primary school teachers - which means less contact hours, which then means more time for work. Being the bright spark I am, I can get away with less than the average work. Which is good, because have you seen my to-do lists? My list for today had 27 items on it! 27! (This is written 1 week before posting. I love scheduling posts!)
Anyways, I was comparing the work that we have to do to what the other grad dips are doing. We have to log on every week and contribute to a blog discussion, with a 100 word post about the readings for the week. Every week. So over 1000 words.
The other grad dips get to make a poster.
Now, when I was in uni first time round, I HATED posters. In fact, when I initially saw the poster project and thought it was for us, I nearly cried. What a waste of time, energy and learning opportunity. Seriously, we're in uni. We shouldn't be making posters.
That said, I'm going to have to write every week! I'm going to have to do more work than the others!
At least I'll actually learn something.
