things just learned
1. I enjoy blogging.
I really truly do. Until it becomes a requirement.
For one of my classes this semester we were assigned the task of starting/keeping up a blog and writing posts.
I decided to use this blog for that assignment since I was already “established” and was enjoying immensely what I was doing.
Well, I quickly realized that I only enjoyed blogging when it didn’t entail an “assignment” like quality to it. Soon enough the mental thought of “blogging” became a chore and you know what?
Sometimes you just don’t have anything to say!
And it’s times like that when you need to take a little breather.
2. Google Reader can be a lifesaver when you’re busy.
In the same class where we delved into the blogosphere, we also learned about a handful of online applications, social media, and other interactive web tools.
Setting up a Google Reader pretty much saved my life.
Not only did it help me stay up to date with my favorite blogs, but it also helped me keep track of blog posts for my thesis that I was typing away at.
If you’re not already hooked on your Reader, get one started now.
3. Just because you emailed your professor your thesis and defended it in front of the English Department does not mean you’ve graduated yet.
Unfortunately, I still have other classes and assignments.
But for right now, I’m just going to plan on coloring Easter eggs with my brothers and sisters and dust off our Easter baskets.
We already have our white crayons and rubber bands ready.
You know you want to.
4. It’s good to go home when your peanut butter jar is waning just a bit too much for licking.
5. Splashup might just be my new best friend.
(Am I late to the party?)
I had never heard of it before my New Media class but it’s this really neat site photo editing site.
I love photography and can spend hours just playing around on Picasa.
This is like that, but just a little better.
What’s your newest addiction? (It can be a food, an application, an exercise, a tv show, you name it!) I’m currently addicted to the show America’s Next Greatest Restaurant. Get on that. You’ll like it, I promise!
What are your plans for Easter Eve? Coloring Easter eggs with the family of course! Then Sunday we do the whole bit of Mass (most important), Easter baskets (a close second), Easter egg hunt (we do all still love it), and then dinner with the family.
