That Time Again . . .

For the past few weeks I have enjoyed catching up with my blogging friends. Finally, I have an empty “inbox” in my email. I may not have responded to every single post, but I have visited and responded to all bloggers (I hope). Starting tomorrow however, I will once again have to slow down the blog hopping and hob-knobbing with y’all. A new quarter begins and school will become my top priority. The most recent quarter was the most challenging yet. This quarter looks to be a bit less so, but there will still be mountains of material to read, weekly papers to write, challenging assignments to complete. My courses this quarter include Psychopathology (oooooh . . .sounds fascinating, don’t you think?) and Group Therapy Theories (should be quite interesting.) As usually happens I will pretty much keep up with the blogging in the early part of the quarter, but will taper off as we move nearer the last weeks when the big projects start coming due. Please understand if I fail to visit your blogs as frequently, or resort to simply checking the “like” button (I like to let my friends know that I stopped by their sites.) But the bigger life picture beckons, and I really am into the big picture. Hugs to you all. I’ll keep up as long as I can. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Rebekah. You are a wonderful blogging friend. I enjoy blogging so much and hate to let it slide, but sometimes I have to (at least for certain periods of time!) Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure my coursework will wend it’s way into the blogs somehow. Have a restful evening.

  1. It’s not related to group therapy theories, but I find group behavior really interesting. I’ve read some articles about it and I must say it’s unbelievable how dumb people can make themselves just in order to fit into a group! (check out the findings of Solomon Asch, et al).
    Psychopathology also sounds interesting. Good luck with your courses!

  2. It isn’t easy to keep up when times get busy. We all have to prioritise, and we will all understand. Have a great term. I’m sure you’ll find something there to tell us!

  3. You are in a great field. I finished MA for CHAP(certified holistic addiction professional) 4 years ago. Would need 2,000 hour internship and extensive tests for licenture and after 33 years in the classroom and at my age that won’t happen. The significant thing in this study was the use of the internet for research. 40 years ago (BA History, MA Religion)we had only books and very finite limits on being able to research.

    1. Yes, I remember the days pre-internet and google. In some ways I miss it. I loved going to the library, searching the stacks, sitting at a carroll and writing my papers (to be typed later — didn’t like the typing so much.) But the internet certainly puts the world at our fingertips so I can’t complain. Thanks for stopping by, Carl. Have a fantastic weekend. πŸ™‚

  4. Having done Science with the Open University I can fully visualize the mountains of reading material that await you! Good luck with your coursework – I hope everything goes well πŸ™‚

  5. Have a great term! Have not only taken those classes but also have taught those classes…they can be difficult, interesting, hard…many times depends on your instructor….Nevertheless, best and grab that brass ring at the end!

    1. I think this will be a good term. Last term I had assessments and measures, and that drove me crazy! I figure if I could survive that course, I can survive these courses! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by, and for leaving words of encouragement. Much appreciated.

  6. Loved your “blog hopping and hob-knobbing” – what a neat phrase for describing your blog reading during your break – and thank you for visiting mine. Your comment (about my January 5, 1962 diary entry) brought back memories of friend-to-friend conversations, gab sessions and floor meetings in a college dormitory. I think you will enjoy your new courses.

    1. Thanks Barbara. Reading your blog always reminds me of my college days. Cool. I think I will enjoy my courses, and I’m pretty sure that they will creep into the blog now and then. Thanks for stopping by.
