Today I spent a lot of time tinkering with all the different social media components to this course and to be honest I don’t think I’m getting very much to stick. I know it’s only day 3 of the semester, but assignments are due tomorrow, my textbook hasn’t arrived, I’m wondering if I got things set up correctly between twitter, flickr, ds106, ucdenver15, UGH! There is so much stuff!!!!!
Deep breath, in . . . out. . . in . . . out.
This is what I get for avoiding twitter even though I originally signed up in 2008. My account was deactivated because I never logged in. If only I knew I was going to pursue this degree and need to fully understand social media. I keep thinking that maybe I missed the boat and now the swim to catch up just might be too great. I’ve skimmed a few of my classmates blogs and it seems like there may be others that have this uncertainty too. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one overwhelmed and freaking out.
It’s all about learning, right? So I’m going to jump in with both feet and swim my hardest to catch that boat. I’m certain there is going to be several near drownings before I get there, so please be patient. If you can tell that I probably need a life preserver, I will be very grateful for the support, so feel free to toss one out to me. I am always open to help, no matter how it gets to me.
What a semester we have in store. I’m excited to be apart of this course, even if all I really want to do is drop the class and hide back under my safe, secure, unsocial rock. I’ve had nothing but positive experiences in my previous courses for this degree, so I’ll stick with it and see you all at the end of the tunnel, in August.
