Ive been working on the task for EBusiness, the third class (after Education Without Boundaries and Human Resources) since last Wednesday. It's not Tuesday and I've not gotten much done. I'm not sure if I'm getting burned out or the fact that I watched the course mentor's webinar-intro-thingy where he stated that this one task typically takes people 120 hours to complete. 120 hours?! "You cannot be serious!" (Gotta love John McEnroe!) Yes, I realize that I probably spent at least that much on my HR class that had 3 tasks, but this seems like so much more.
I have not excuses though. At first my excuse was that I was still waiting on getting Task 3 back, possibly for revisions, but then I passed, so I don't have that anymore. Have you ever felt like you had a question, but you weren't sure what exactly it was? I emailed the course mentor. Wah-wah! "Duh, have you seen the webinar?" Yeah, dude, I have.
I gave myself almost the entire weekend off since J and I were running the San Antonio marathon, our combined 100th marathon. (No, not my first, and his 99th thankyouvery much. I contributed 44 to his 56.)
I'm just so confused. This task seems so huge. Basically, it's to create a marketing plan for a business. The task seems like to do it justice, I'd need about 6 months to complete it, and that will make me miss my deadline of late December.
Oh and I just noticed that there is no actual marking or entrepreneurial class. Weird, huh? A class on entrepreneurship would really fit with this model of students who can work independently.
Oh, and I have my call with Kelly in a few minutes. The lady is nice and all, but she sucks the life out of me and I probably won't be able to do much after speaking with her. Often, she calls 15 or even 30 minutes after our scheduled time. We hardly ever talk about school, and I despise the fact that it seems like we have to talk for an hour. I really wish that WGU was more flexible in allowing me to contact her with questions, or not having a minimum length of call. I appreciate her cheeriness and encouragement, I just wish that it was more focused on how she can better help me, rather than her being able to check a box off.
Oh well, one step forward is still a step ahead. So I go, chip, chipping away at the task.
