You know what I really love about part-time grad school? I’ll tell you. The mandatory 1- and 2- credit pass/fail courses. Love. Them. Nothing says “totally worth your time and money” like a nice round “P” on your transcript. Amiright? No. Not at all.
I digress. I’m currently in a (1-credit) exec skills class that meets from 6:00-9:00pm every night for four days. As you might imagine, this is not exactly something I “want” to “do” after working a ten hour day. So, on our morning run, A and I brainstormed ways to make it more fun.
“Maybe I’ll live tweet the whole class,” I said, only somewhat joking.
“And you could make a Top 10 list of things the professor says,” she replied.
“Yea! Great idea!” I answered. “I’ll just write down anything funny or interesting.”
And that, my friends, is how we reversed engineered a technique known in some circles as, “taking notes.”
