Dear guy giving the dictation:
Could you not wait to eat your sandwich until AFTER YOU'RE DONE?! I hate you. Your accent is strong enough that I'm having a hell of a time figuring out what you're saying without you stuffing a loaf of peanut butter and jelly into your mouth and talking through it.
I hope you paper-cut yourself to death on these reports,

I hate transcription. I so seriously do. :P

Quarter ends a week from today.
I expect to spend most of the weekend finishing up homework - a pile of transcription for one class and two papers (one due Monday noon and the other due Thursday 10pm) for the other.

When I go in on Monday or Tuesday after work to drop off the pile of transcription, I will also have to turn in the forms for my name change and holy hell drop off my three graduation forms for my certifications. I ran my degree audits this afternoon to make sure I wasn't missing anything that I didn't know about, and I'm NOT.

One class left - all three certifications still need me to take 2 credits of AMA 101 (yeah, it's the last one, heh - Communications in Healthcare). I may snag a couple extras that became a mandatory part of the programs the quarter after I started (Basic Psych Principles and Patient Prioritizing and Instruction - at 1 credit each, they're well within my tuition waiver, I won't be paying anything extra except about $5 each for the course packets :P), but I haven't decided yet for sure.

And then I will be done with North.

Once BCC gets back to me and tells me I can take classes there (community colleges don't reject people, do they? :P), I'll sit down with an advisor and go over a plan (which I need to make this weekend), but right now the plan starts with PHIL 265 (Biomedical Ethics: 1908) and PSYCH 100 (Intro to Psych: 5711) in the fall.

In the longer scheme, the plan is to do my AAS (a general Associate in Arts and Sciences, falls under a direct transfer agreement to most WA public universities) in the next 2 years, then let UW (Public Health) and WWU (Human Services) fight over me. Heh. :)

So far, my customer relations class has had three 2-page paper assignments (the most recent one being the one behind the Barnes & Noble survey last week, thank you). I've gotten 100% on two of them (including the B&N one, thank you again), and while I keep forgetting to ask about my grade on the third (it was a group assignment, and he only sends out the grades on those to people who specifically request them), I can't imagine it would be any less than a 90%, since I wrote most of the darn paper and the grade is based on an average of what I gave myself and what my partner gave me.

I have three more 2-page individual papers and two more group papers due in the next month for this class, plus a final, and I still have to do some transcription for the other class I'm taking this quarter, in which my whole entire grade is based on 9 1-2 page transcribed reports and 32 questions, no final. Whee :)

For a paper next week, I have to collect input on a particular business - so behind the cut, there are 18 yes/no questions and 3 "on a scale from 1 to 5" questions regarding the bookstore Barnes & Noble. (Please note: I did not make up the questions, they were pre-generated by the instructor.) Due to the LJ limitations on poll sizes, there are two - please, if you fill out one, fill out both. All the yes/no questions also have an answer for non-applicable, so please do complete all the questions. Thanks :)

Thanks again :)

Blah. I hate writing papers. I'm not verbose enough.

Short version of the first paper for my consumer relations class:

"Took the personality test. It was on crack. Joyce agrees."

Now to expand that into 1.5-2 pages.

Next quarter is going to be so weird. I'll still be taking seven credits, like I have been - but it'll be in only two classes. The AMA classes for my program so far have mostly been 1 credit, with a few 2-credit courses - the program is designed to be easy to break down and take part time. So when I've been taking 6 and 7 courses a quarter, it's still only part time as far as credits go.

But next quarter, I have one of the few 2-credit AMA courses (Communications in Healthcare) and a 5-credit course out of the business department (Customer Relations) - and that's it.

Summer will be the last of my 3 transcription courses, at which point I will have completed the requirements for all three certificates I'm getting, plus English 101 (because the terms of my tuition waiver specifically exclude English 100, 101 and 102 at the University of Washington, but not at any of the community colleges, so I figure I might as well get it out of the way while it's free).

And hopefully, in June or July, I'll find out that I got accepted to the UW. *crossing fingers like whoa*
