Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your support. I had my second ADP meeting today and it went well. I don't think the temp adviser thought I would have some of the steps already completed. You know some of my issue according to her was time-management. Now I have a couple of weeks to write the reflection paper on my class that there were issues in and a stress management plan. After that I have to meet with the new adviser twice a month during the next semester.

Having a picky prof is horrible and my temp adviser when I had her for class was extremely picky. The syllabus said a max of 5 pages for a case study and I could never get a better grade on it until I handed in a 16 page case study only then I got an A. So I feel your pain ACEAMOON.

George, thanks for the support and yes I will take you up on your offer to vent. I wish I could vent to my fellow classmates but because of the ADP's specification that all interactions are monitored and talked about amongst the staff, I don't want to take any risks of not looking like I belong in the program or that anxiety levels are reaching too high and the ADP is not working. Thank you.

I hope all is going well for you guys take care.

Emma

I understand, I have a current prof that is so picky. He has changed his format three different times for papers and doesn't post changes until after the papers are due. Love that. It is a challenge trying to find time for assignments and self-care.

Dear Emma,
I totally get where you are coming from. I have a prof that is just so beyond comprehension. And I have her for two classes at the same time. I did Summer A Quarter that ran from June 11th to July 13th and am now in Summer B Quarter which runs from July 16th to Aug 16th. I got an entire weekend off between Summer quarters and will have about a weekend off between the B quarter and Fall Semester. I will be doing my student teaching during the day, my classes in the evenings and trying to find time to do my homework, grade my students' homework and write lesson plans. I will have the prof from you know where for the next year because she is my program director and my advisor. YeeHaa! Just hang in there. I am here for your support. Drop by my page or blog anytime. Message me to vent. Whatever you need just let me know. George

Hi Everyone,

It has been a tough couple of weeks. First off I did lose a few pounds emoticon However, these last few weeks are supper hectic. My semester ends next week and I am trying to figure out how I can get all my papers, discussions (hybrid summer class), group project, working out, and a finale test all due by various times next week without going crazy. Then balancing that with the stupid ADP they have me on which is suppose to help me with stress!!! It is creating more stress in my life. I have two A's right now in my classes to add to my already GPA of 3.45 but I now have to jump through added hoops of an Academic Development Plan because of one teacher's opinion of me. I just need some support to get through this week then I am off for a month and I am also going to Orlando and DC part school stuff and part fun. Thanks guys. Take care,
Emma
