Homework has always been a controversial issue since the beginning of education. Teachers have always considered it as one of the major educational tools; homework has been used in various forms. Doing homework has always been difficult for students. They have always suffered from doing homework especially in the initial years of their education. Even they sometimes ask their parents to do it for them. Gradually, they will face more problems. Homework has been given various names. Some call it the factor of activity, practice, internalization, and educational creativity; some others call it as disaster; a group consider it as the factor for instability of the family and the dispute between parents; some extremists call it an educational monster that ruins learners’ talents, tendencies and motivations in the era of the third wave; they consider it as a psychological torture for students.

An honest, sharp-witted, practical guide to help you get and keep the job you want—from an outsider whose been there and done it, a woman who went from being a broke, divorced, college dropout to running some of the biggest websites in the world. Jennifer Romolini started her career as an awkward twenty-seven-year-old misfit, navigated her way through New York media and became a boss—an editor-in-chief, an editorial director, and a vice president—all within little more than a decade. Her book, Weird In A World That’s Not, asserts that being outside-the-norm and achieving real, high-level success are not mutually exclusive, even if the perception of the business world often seems otherwise, even if it seems like only office-politicking extroverts are set up for reward.

Romolini helps you face down your fears, find a career that’s right for you, and get and keep a job. She tackles practical issues and offers empathetic, clear-cut answers to important questions: * How do I navigate the awkwardness of networking? * How do I deal with intense office politics? * How do I leave my crappy job? * How do I learn how to be a boss not just a #boss? * And, most importantly: How do I do all this and stay true to who I really am? Authentic, funny, and moving, Weird in a World That’s Not will help you tap into your inner tenacity and find your path, no matter how offbeat you are.
