thinking about the amazing race and mentorship
Three years of college later, I'm still not 100% sure how to find a book on the shelves😅
Considering how often I avoid potentially cool things out of fear, a good mentor for me is someone who gives (in Gandalf’s words) ‘a little nudge out of the door’.
I'm currently an adult learner working on my Bachelor's degree in an online history/social studies program. It is so challenging as an adult learner to begin with and then being online compared to being a student on campus seems so different for me as well. The last time I was a student on a campus was in the 1990s. But being online and having no study buddies, no mentor, no help at all from my program just sucks. It is such a struggle. And then throw in that I'm trying to study history and professors expect certain knowledge of history research methods and writing that I don't have as I was never taught in this program makes it even more difficult. I totally want to do the research but no knowledge of how. Just limping along over here.
