Training Day

I was always one of those people who loved school. I liked shopping for school supplies, new school clothes, and I was eager to find out who my new teacher was. It didn't matter what kind of school - elementary or grad school. I loved being in class and learning new things. Okay, maybe not Calculus, but pretty much everything else. This week I get to go back to class...sort of. I have training on our information system as we will be upgrading to version 9.0 in July.

I'm an impatient learner and I think that this week will be a lesson in patience for me. I like to move along quickly and with little interruption. It's kind of hard to do that when you are in a class with people of varying expertise and experience. I understand why we go at the pace we do. It doesn't mean that I have to like it. Day 1 is not completely over yet and I kind of wish I could just take the book home with me and teach myself. Of course, in doing that, I miss out on the classroom experience - which I really enjoy. I got to meet other people from across campus who I e-mail a lot, but very rarely see. So, I'm looking forward to the rest of the week if only because I get to see these people for three more days.
