The Problem with Internet-Based Classes

Internet-based classes are great. I can do the work, listen to the lectures, and write researched discussion posts all from my desk in the dining room, and all while Ethan is sleeping. I'm prone to fall into the trap of rabbit trails, though. I start out trying to find out what the average turn-around time on a GC culture is (2-4 days), and an hour later I'm reading about fatal familial insomnia and trying desperately not to click on over to etsy.

Seems some other people have the same problem: Completely off-topic post about health, fish and clothesline.
