Change of Plans

December 26, 2012 at 20:42 (Uncategorized)

I had two free days – 25/12 and 26/12.  I had plans for these days, they involved some sewing and embroidering.  They involved rewatching The Walking Dead while doing said sewing and embroidering.

But I’ve been rereading Fairy Tail instead.  I can read lying down which is strangely less painful than sitting or standing.  I have tonsillitis – the agony.  I feel as though I’m starving to death very slowly.  Today there has only been pain while I’m eating.   It’s getting better but my two free days!?

At least it’s only two working days until the weekend.  And then Monday is a half followed by yet another public holiday, so all round it’s not a real catastrophe.

I also managed to get in some fiction writing, but not for Price of Freedom.

Online Education

December 9, 2012 at 10:31 (Uncategorized)

I love the idea of online education.  I don’t think it will replace teachers or education institutions.  And I’ve found a cool site with a fair number of courses I want to do – https://www.coursera.org/.  I have started with two, Fundamentals of Online Education and E learning and digital culture.   They start  at the end of January and I’m very excited to begin.

Yesterday was a very long, entertaining, enjoyable, surprising and emotional yule.  Good food, good fighting, good singing, good weather – all fantastic.  I received two awards which caught me completely off guard.  I was rather proud of myself at how I held myself together for the first award, but couldn’t for the second – not only the awards but the amazing artwork that went into them.

I have some ideas for today but none of them are really being acted upon…
