Comment on Less Traveled Roads Preferred by Kim

Thank you so much for voicing your concerns. I was going to rule it out because it's so far from me. I have had such an incredibly good experience at Howard Community College that I have a hard time believing that any Bachelor's program will be an improvement; it's just something I have to get out of the way. If I could tell you anything, I would say that you still have time to get yourself on a good course, I know you feel like you have wasted effort and money, but believe me, almost everyone does that the first time around in college whether it's because they screw it up through partying, pick the wrong major, or whatever. Good luck finding at path to Nursing that works better for you!

Avoid Towson. I'm in my first semester and I hate it. It's made my anxiety and depression much worse. Barely anyone talks to me even though I'm friendly. The teachers think that they have the ability to teach just because they have a masters. I reached out after the first test to all of the help they offered... and continued to fail 3 more tests. I feel like the dummy of the program, even though I had a 3.6 in high school and a 3.25 prior to the program. I busted my ass for 2.5 years at this school, and my advisor told me that if I fail a certain number of credits (at all, entirely) that not only would I be kicked from the program, but also the major. So the past 3 years would be a waste of all the work I've done. If I knew this was a shitty program 4 years ago when I was applying for colleges as a senior in high school, I would have NEVER chosen this school. It has done nothing but break me down into feeling like an idiot- and being smart was one of my traits that I was REALLY proud of having. I don't feel that way anymore because of that school. They're also on academic probation BECAUSE of the teachers not fulfilling their responsibility, yet on orientation they were talking about how the program was so "great". Harford Community college has a better program than this university. Also, they're NCLEX passing rate is below what the State of Maryland wants. I've been doing research because I plan on dropping this program. I cannot take the tests. After talking with my teachers (after multiple times), they've even told me that from talking to me, they know that I know the material, but when I sit down to take a test, my test anxiety gets in the way. I exceeded in patient care when I was in clinical working with stroke patients, where every person was a fall risk. Now how is that fair? That because I can't pass a written test, it shows them "She doesn't know anything" but I'm able to effectively work with patients hands-on and no one can see that. I plan on getting my ADN and RN license. If you go on nursing forums SO many people will tell of how themselves or their coworkers only earn (for some) $5000 more than those with a ADN. Long story short: Avoid it. You'll waste your time and money.



Comment on Me Ra Koh Workshop: Confidence Gained! by Kim

It is very very steep. It is a very good experience, and I learned a few very valuable skills about focusing my camera the way I want to and using Lightroom. They are definitely things that could be learned from watching videos on Youtube. But the hands-on guidance and the atmosphere of learning and fostering your growth as a photographer is what I figured I paid all that money for. I don't regret it but if the opportunity came up today, I would not spend that much money (of course I am not employed like I was then, is the main reason).

I am thinking of signing up for Me Rah Koh upcoming workshop in May. But it is $800 for 2 days. Isn't that a bit steep? What did you learn that you cannot learn on say youtube? Is it really worth it?

Hello Ted. Actually, since I bought that one pen, I have bought a large number of Ohto products from Jetpens! I haven't been blogging much, but I appreciate your stopping by. I am still enjoying a set of your ceramic rollerball pens for most of my school needs.

Love the fair and honest reviews! Regarding the needle-point, yes they are VERY fine. They are specifically made for writing Kanji which are many stroked characters and as such work best with thin lines. For reference, the Tasche Needle-Point 0.7mm rolls out a 0.35mm line and the 0.5mm rolls out at 0.2mm both of which are quite fine. Feel free to let me know if there is another OHTO product you are keen to try and I will get you one to review - on me of course! For those of you interested in the Orange one, they will soon be available through our OHTO Americas Direct web-store launching in January.
