One paper down, two to go!
I just turned in my "personal theory on adult learning", which, strangely enough, looks a lot like the VERY SPECIFIC GUIDELINES provided by the instructor. I'm lucky I've been molded to think like the instructor, I guess. (Tongue FIRMLY in cheek!)
Fortunately, this paper, known in my head as "ugh, I don't want to write this", was due first AND it was the most dreaded. So, now I'm left with two papers that I'm actually INTERESTED in writing. My outlook on those papers is surprisingly close to "sounds like fun." (Thompson, 2007, ha ha)
