over my head?

i know i'm not dumb. actually, i consider myself fairly smart, most of the time. but for some reason i'm looking at the tasks ahead for school and i am FREAKING out. i don't know how to start. it's been ten years since i graduated with my undergrad degree. school started last night and i spent about 2.5 hours working on it. i don't feel like i really even got anywhere. i have a discussion post to make by wednesday. i've read the material and am at a loss of what to write. grrr.

i'm hoping this is just a bumpy start and not an indication that this school thing is going to be too much for me...

This is my fear about going back. I feel like I'm at least 25% dumber than I was back in college.

You'll do fine- it will be hard at first, but you'll get there.

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I did get my first assignment done tonight, now I just need to tackle the paper that is due for Sunday...

DDG, you have inspired me. I'm going back this fall to finish an MA I started in 2000. Let's be each other's support network.

You get props for going back. There are many of us that , uh yeah, just don't wanna do it.

(Cue guy with Cajun accent from "The Waterboy") YOU CAN DO IT! (I know, you already finished that paper, but humor me.) I just finished a semester, and I thought I'd bomb. Once you get on a roll, you'll see how good it will be!
