Birthday cake? Yes please.

I used to play a video game called Fat Princess... it’s a lot like capture the flag, and one of your objectives was to keep feeding cake to your own princess, to fatten her up and make it difficult for the opposing team to carry her over to their side.

Everything else was basically chaos...so much fun.

only group project i had in my last 2 years of undergrad was for an online class. we met in person to coordinate it. ironic. we also had to record our voices and 'present it'. the professor really didn't understand this online only class thing

I had a fairly traditional undergrad experience, and have considered getting my Master's online...

I'm not convinced that it will be worthwhile or that I am capable of returning to school at this point. A very convincing factor is that at the graduate level, I won't have to deal with other people's crap in quite the same way! Especially with an online program.

I want to do something meaningful with my life and my current freelance work isn't a career. But if I do go back it has to be different. I mean, I have to be different. I was all about grades and yes learning, and I learned a lot (and had a 4.0), but I can't do that anymore. I can't be worried about every single thing because I have to be perfect. And I don't know if I can fly like that in a school atmosphere or not, never have.

I foresee going back but probably not until next year. It's also hard because I will have to do loans and shit, and in the end I won't make any more than I am making now, most likely. At least my work schedule (whatever I want) is conducive to going back to school, won't have to figure that out. I never really wanted to do social work but I want to work in psych and I don't want to do counseling (at least primarily), so unless I want to get a phd (or a worthless psych MA) it's social work or nothing. I could do nursing but idk if I can perform at that level any more, or I guess maybe I just don't want to. Really I should have done nursing to begin with probably, but I'm too worn out for a 2 year intense program in anything applied like that I think.

The thought of adding debt to my current financial situation is the biggest deterrent for me. I'm finally getting just the smallest bit of good credit and I really don't want to have to dig myself out of another hole.

Also, I can't function without at least SOME sleep (I barely made it through my daughter's newborn stage with any sanity)
My kid is in an education program which would allow me maybe 2 hours per day to do schoolwork, but that would mean I could only take like a course or two per semester. Personally, I don't want to just be getting my Master's almost 35 (I'm 30 in less than 2 weeks). It's not a bad thing to do that, I just have different goals for my 30s and need to consider 2 people at all times.

reprise85 03-06-2020 02:32 AM

yeah, i'm about to turn 35 so there's definitely that

i told my teacher what happened afterwards in private, though. but the other two girls in my group did tell me two weeks ago they were glad i called this girl out in class to let her know she would not be blaming us for her laziness.

I had a group project for the first time last year, and it was me and one other person who did nearly all of the work. I decided early on to create a slack group for us and emailed an invite to the lecturer. That way, I figured, if our presentation on the day was dismal (it sorta was) then at least there was a record of me making an effort and showing interest.

I sent the invite to the lecturer ‘in case it was more convenient to provide feedback that way than in person’

I received an A, not sure about the others - high chance they received As as well, and that the whole class received an A simply for participating.

I was 39 last year though, so it felt worse to have conflict with my group and ask for the direct input of the lecturer, than it did to just try and document the activity as it happened (I wrote up my notes from our face to face meetings and uploaded them to the slack chat hoping it would show that it was my initiative that allowed us to meet in the first place) and then just wear the result. Anyway, it worked out

I took some advice from my husband, who has been a contractor on and off for a long time, and who recommended creating records of my work and leaving a paper trail a mile wide, so that if anyone asks “what have you been doing?” I can point at it all, and say “this right here”

I started a vanity masters (Creative writing) at 36 and it was one of the best things I have ever done.

And I started my arts/social science masters last year at 39, and it led to me getting an entry level job after 14-15 years at home with my kids and volunteering in the community (more or less). So it was worth it for me. I wouldn’t have the entry level job I have now, which has greater scope for career progression than a lot of entry level jobs, if I hadn’t started the masters last year (it’s unfinished; I found a job before finishing the research paper and now I’ll have to re-enrol...). But the masters program I did was pretty vocational and included a supported internship at a relevant workplace (it was easier to negotiate an internship with the name of the university behind me, and a respected internship supervisor). It was either that or a masters to become a primary school teacher...because I am too old for another vanity degree

But I had the luxuries of not needing loans and having a very supportive partner

It paid off for him, too...now I am happy to work in an entry level job and write on the weekends...and he’s happy to have money turning up in our account that he doesn’t have to earn himself.

So yeah. Masters can be good, even vanity ones. And there are work arounds, for the group work...
