Now more than ever I have so many friends taking their post secondary education online and it got me thinking. I work from home so I can relate to the experience, and can see how well this sort of thing can work.

I can also worry less about starting at that beautiful blonde two seats over, which is a bad thing.....right? At first, the thought of going to school online didn't sink in too well with me. I'm so comfortable with the way I was brought up learning that I had to look past it to change a little.
