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.
Exploring a ‘New’ Social Media Tool
A Little Taste of Honesty
Okay, I was five seconds away from giving into signing up for an account that just weeks ago I was adamant about not embarking on. Yes… when given this blog prompt the only thing I could think of was one of two things that I couldn’t imagine ever doing. What is it you might ask? Signing up for TikTok. I even thought about using a friend’s account to explore it for the purpose of this assignment and then vowing to never admit it or for certain at least never talking about it ever again in my lifetime. Quick update though, I see that Leigh has given in to signing up for TikTok, and now I’m wondering if I’m making a mistake. But after coming across A Taste of Honesty and nearly peeing my pants from laughter (probably a combination of TMI and definitely being way overtired right now) I realized that I’m not ready for it quite yet. I mean, it’s probably an amazing tool for learning about all of the things or filling an incredible amount of time that I clearly don’t have but it’s something that I am still going to hold off on for now. However, if you really want full disclosure, I will probably use it for my learning project without signing up for it, and then still continue to be in full denial about it. Anyways, I should probably refocus my energy back to where I was intending to go with this post.
The Stuff that Dreams are Made of.
I seem to always struggle to find the right words to say that accurately summarize my thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a short and sweet kind of way.
Because this is the last post I am writing for EC&I 834, I will try to condense my ramblings a little bit more than I had throughout the course. Or try to anyway.
