A Quick Update on the Ole’ Learning Project
A Lot of Learning & Research
Although I haven’t been as active on the old Cricut machine as I would have liked to have been lately with the move and all, I have been behind the scenes doing a bunch of Cricut learning mainly through Pinterest, the Internet, and an occasional TikTok video or two. There is still a lot that I have to learn, but I am taking it one step at a time. Unlike some projects I have picked up over the years and tried to complete faster than I started them, I am really trying to slow this one down, enjoy the process and use it as a life-long skill (or as long as the Cricut is around for). There’s a lot to learn still, and I am excited but pacing my learning for my own mental health and wellness, as well as balancing all of the plates I seem to have in the air. So, take a ride with me through the tales of the research I have been doing lately, and where I plan to go from here. As always, thanks for hopping along for the ride, I see you, and I appreciate you.
Social Media & Activism
A Shot of Honesty, and Maybe an Espresso Shot Too
It’s been a hot minute since I have been on here and written a post, so here we are, back at it! Although I had a million ideas swirling in my head after last class, the stress of not only renovating and moving homes but becoming a landlord as well, has my brain feeling like melted ice cream on a scorching summer day. And to be completely frank, maybe I would have been better organized if we weren’t moving next door… yes, I am 1000% serious right now. So although I feel as if I have some great ideas, please bear with me as my ideas may not be as woven as they sometimes might be (or who knows, maybe I’m always this scrambly).
Working Towards a Journey of Learning
Because I am starting with the Cricut machine purchased by the school, I first had to take down the boxes off of the shelf and reorganize all of them. I mean, it’s great we have the tools and some supplies, but the Amazon box used as an organizer isn’t quite hacking it for me. So, because I am who I am and love all things organized (minus I’m falling real short in that department at home and in my car lately), I started to look online for better organizational options. I started first with Amazon (full credit to the box inspiration) and of course, found an endless amount of options. Let’s be honest, I should have known better, but I was still shocked by the sheer number of items available to organize all things Cricut. And if you didn’t think that was enough, check out Pinterest for even more ideas here! Anyways, one thing led to another and I eventually asked the principal if there was in fact a budget for an expense such as that one… he’s still getting back to me (I wonder why… ha!).
