Can I Breath – Week 3 Blog Post

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:

Getting Through Road Blocks is Flexanimous to Me

I had no idea what this word flexanimous meant, I had to Google it. I realize that this is me. When I set out to do something, I keep going and am determined not give up. This makes me think about life, and how there are so many road blocks that we have to dodge to get to where we want to be. Your mind is set to accomplish what you set out to do no matter what. I am that person and I know there are a lot of people that are like me too. My drawing is not the best, but here is my image/drawing of cars being blocked on the road and will find a way to through.

Just Being Me, My First Daily Create

My first dailycreate was a little overwhelming because I had to be at work at 6 in the morning and did not get home until almost 7. Then I did not realize I did not link my UMW email and my Twitter account to my Flickr account. It took me quite some time to figure out what was wrong. I am exhausted, but am determined to make this class fun. Determination is the key to success.
