    Paper completed and submitted!!! Had to call an IT number at University of Texas. They said they had updated some things with the EPIC website and it had effected some folks logging in and not others. Anyway, got that straightened out and everything seems OK! Thanks again for the support! Oh, got my previous assignment grade. Did well!! We can do this. One week at a time!!!

    Have a good day.

    Hi Rosemrn,

    that is good news! I think I would have lost my mind if I was unable to log onto Epic. Also, great that you did well on your first assignment. I did, too.
    I hope we can do this! There are times when I want to find a tall building and jump off, but I won't do it until I check in here first.

    More later.

    We can do it! I just don't like spending my free time on school work. I know I will regret it if I keep putting this off.

    Hang in there also!!

    So the next assignment is the beginning of a multi-week assignment. I've had classes where I had to pick a topic at the beginning of the class then work on an assignment on that topic for weeks. I chose a horrible topic and ended up hating the topic by the time I was done. I hope I make a better choice this time!

    I feel the same way! Hope I pick a subject with enough info to work with over the next few weeks!

    Know what you mean. Look ahead at the up-coming assignments and see what they want you to do with the topic before you decide. I also looked for articles first to see if there was a lot of info on my topic before I settled on a research question. So, you are kind of working backwards. You don't want to commit to something and then down the road find out there isn't much in the way of articles.

    BTW, rosemrn, has your coach been helpful at all? I see lots of questions posted to mine and I'm not sure if the answers are helping the students. I don't think you and I are in the same section, so I'm wondering if you can rely on your coach for stuff.

    ScarletFire,

    Sometimes our coach answers questions right away and then lot of times there are no answers. I left a few emails last week and received no reply. Felt like I was bugging her, but never got a reply. There is a lot of "good luck".

    Rosemrn & ScarletFire,
    Do not get too absorbed in this Info-Ret assignment. Make sure you look at week 7, you do not have to do a paper at all. Found this out the hard way, after completing the d%$n thing. They really take the points off on APA references. I will be glad when these next couple of weeks are over (took N3335 with Prof B) though I must say it is very doable (all A's so far) since you can work ahead. In Sept, I have N3425 which might be the hardest class so far.

    My coach has answered one of my questions and ignored another. She is the least helpful coach that I've had in any of my classes at UTA so far. Maybe she's trying to toughen me up, who knows. I just try to do my best.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just figured we would have to write a paper about it and do some crazy research at our jobs. That makes me feel better!

    Thanks, Amy. I didn't look that far (week 7), only to week 4, where you have to get into groups and critique your articles. Didn't seem that difficult, but one never knows. good to know about APA reference. What is N3335? I'm away from home visiting my dad and don't have all my stuff w/ me. I think you told me once before you were taking N3425 in Sept. More later.....
