In A Hurry

Email from a student: "Ms. H, may I add your class because I want to graduate on schedule."

Me: "Who did you take English 111 with and what grade did you make?"

Replay: "I took it with you in 2003 and made a B."

Yeah. Wants to finish in a hurry. It's a two year degree. Do the math...

This is why I need medicinal chocolate on a daily basis...


  1. Pretty funny...though when I think of my oldest who still isn't finished with college...I'm cringing a little bit. It's been 5 years for him and no end in sight!

  2. Hi Matty, I hope your new semester gets off to a good start. One of my dear friends works at a large University in California as a councilor. She helps the students set their schedules and helps to get them in to the right classes they need. Every time we talk, she tells me a similar story of how the students exaggerate or tell half truths and feel no qualms about doing so. It must be very challenging. She said every one always speaks as if there is an immediate emergency and she has to ask a lot of questions to get through the layers to the real truth. Your patience and dedication in such an environment is a very honorable thing! I hope you have a good day and lots of rewarding moments ahead. Delisa :)

  3. I see the adventures of a new school year begin anew. Fortunately for us, we just read about it! It's entertaining. But hey, any excuse to eat chocolate!

  4. Dear Matty,

    It looks likes you have your work cut out for you! It definitely takes all kinds, doesn't it?




Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
