I thought last week was one of the most challenging weeks for me, But I think this week was a nightmare and over the top for challenging. I had so many obstacles that I came across this week. I was so frustrated and was thinking I was not going to make it through my assignments. My daughter told me stop thinking so negatively and just concentrate on what assignment I have to do next.
My week started out pretty good, at least I thought so, and then my brother-in-law had to have surgery. It is just me in my sister in the DC metro area; the rest of my family live in New York and Pennsylvania. I knew I had to be there for her and I was OK with getting a little behind to be there for her.
I had to go to New York for a family event; then the unthinkable happen, I had 2 laptops with me thinking I had all of my bases covered and both of them were having issues. I was so happy that my daughter decided to buy me another laptop to help me out. I thought my troubles were over, NOT because now my daughter’s Wi-Fi was not working and she is in grad school. So she needs the internet just as much as I did, every 5-10 minutes we would get disconnected from the internet. Of course, my daughter stated that this never happened and I needed to close anything I was not using. That did not help, it was awful, because I was already behind with posting my assignments and this was not helping me at all. I was not able to post all of my assignments and also stayed in New York an extra day to try and just work on everything because I would have been driving and would not be able to do any assignments. I was so exhausted and stayed up until 2:30 am, and then tried to get a couple of hours sleep before I drove back to Fredericksburg. Got on the highway around 6:00 a.m., and as soon as I got home from my drive, I started working and editing assignments that had errors because I could not get to them, due to connectivity and computer issues. So I am thankful I finally think I got everything up and posted correctly and my main laptop is working also.
I pray week 4 will be better than week 3. I downloaded the Audacity, but have not really gotten a chance to work in it and get comfortable using it. I have been trying to learn a little about the GarageBand, it was pretty good, but I still have a lot to learn. There were some things I could not find in my GarageBand and had to use my daughter’s laptop to get some of the vocals I needed.
I have been receiving a lot of positive and helpful feedback to help me with my links and it was very appreciated. I think I finally got it right, :). So thanks to my fellow classmates.
Here are my assignments for the week below:
I am not sure if the comments suppose to go in here as well.
