Homework, Homework, Homework

When you ask my 4 year niece what she did at school today, she says “play, play, play.” So I thought this title was appropriate for if you asked me what I have been doing for the past week it would be “homework, homework, homework.”

Today was the first day that I realized how much all of the posts, twitter, Facebook, and using delicious have become such a big part of my life. Today at a meeting, a speaker stated that this website is something that I would want to bookmark and I thought why not use delicious? So everything is beginning such a big part of my life and I love delicious

At the beginning of the semester, I was wondering how I could fit it all in and in fact this is still something that I am struggling with! I thought that I could manage my time quite well but this past week I had a quantitative research article to critique in a week and the day that it was due I learned that I had to make may changes. Of course this was also the day that I travel 5 hours to class so by the time I got home it was time to make supper, go to another class and stay up to midnight to complete. I am happy to report that my assignment was submitted 13 minutes prior to the due date! It just shows how much things have changed as I am no longer submitting assignments on paper and I do not remember the last time I was able to submit an assignment after receiving feedback for improvement.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their comments on my skype question. I think it is important to start a discussion.

Tomorrow I will also have a new experience as a reporter would like to interview me about my use of medical apps.

I have also been approached by my supervisor to see if I would like to work with her on an open access journal for nursing so this will be an exciting time as we would like to work on this and get something going by spring 2012. Please keep reading my blog for future updates.

I will also have more about my final project to add this weekend.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I thought I was busy, but I am tired just from reading your blog. I started my delicious site but must confess I have not been there for a while or used it. I do need to get more in the habit and in fact just talked to a teacher on staff who works in more than one school about setting up an account. So I need to spend more time and get comfortable using it so I can help her out. I think part of what set me back is I imported all of my bookmarks and then realized that I didn’t want them all. Good luck on your project.

  2. Shauna – like you I am finding that I am way busier than I feel I have time for – the one thing that has occurred is that the tools we are discussing (like Delicious too) are making my life easier. I am also using summify to help manage my Twitter feed when I can’t get to it.

    Best of luck with the journal – sounds like a great undertaking.
