My first graduate class starts at the end of this month, and I am nowhere near ready to be back inside of a classroom quite yet. I need to figure out if I am going to do the whole laptop in class schtick or my classic hand-written notations approach. I prefer not having the distraction of my laptop for class, but after a full day of work will my brain be able to keep up otherwise?
What should I do?
I am enrolled, part-time, in Pace University’s Dyson College of the Arts & Sciences Book Publishing Certificate Program. This could lead to big things in the publishing world, in terms of my career. On the other hand, it could show me just how much I do not want to work in there…though, I doubt it. The trick is going to be working my full-time job and going to school two nights a week. Luckily, I just found out that I have July 4th off for the holiday. Bully for me!
I am starting with one course: The Principles of Publishing. The textbook cost me about $27.73 on Amazon, depending on who is selling the book to you. Compared to my Undergraduate textbook costs, that was a bargain! Check out Publishing: Principles and Practice by Richard Guthrie if you are looking for an interesting background on all things publishing.
