Pretend it’s not there

Hi Everyone,  I am Elaine and I am taking the Cyberporn and Society class at UB.  I live in Nesconset, NY (Long Island) with my husband and two children.  I attended UB many years ago and left with only one semester to go. I love Buffalo, the weather and all, and I miss being there.  I always wanted to complete my Communication degree but put it on hold to raise my children.  I decided after 14 years, it was time to start up again.  I noticed this class was being offered online and thought it was the best opportunity and grabbed it.  It will allow me to fulfill my final COM requirement while learning a bit about society and the influences pornography has on it.  The title is intriguing and hopefully, when this class is over, I will better understand my husband’s obsession! Taking the class online allows me to set my own schedule as well, a definite bonus.

    Any plans to take more classes?

    Dan –
    I have only 10 more credits to go to earn my Bachelor’s, so I would be foolish not to go on.
    But foolish I am! I put all my eggs in one basket. I planned to register at a SUNY school nearby, therefore, UB would definitely accept the credits. What I forgot was that 7 credits could be anything, absolutely anything and don’t need to be approved. But I forgot that. When it came to register as a non-matriculated student, they weren’t accepting anymore applications!
    To try to make my long (pitiful on my part) story short – I put in a leave from UB, will take the online writing course that is required of me in the Spring, but in the meantime, I am waiting to hear from Empire State College about late registration for The Center for Distance Learning! I would like to take a course on Nutrition (surprise!) and one on the History of Math (because I am insane!)
    So, there you have it – glad you asked!? 🙂
