Woke up this morning and had the strangest feeling. I couldn’t pinpoint it. It’s like I was forgetting something. I checked my calendar. Nope, nothing scheduled. Hmmm. Did I have to register for my classes? No, did that yesterday. Asked my daughters, texted my hubby, “Did I need to do something for you today?” All them answered no. I started to get paranoid. Maybe a bill needed to be paid? Did I forget a lunch date? No and no. Start up my laptop, opened WordPress to check on the assignments – that’s when it hit me up. I wasn’t missing anything, I am done. WE ARE DONE! Class is over. There is no team assignment due, no reviews, no required weekly response. I am really done. WE are really done. Wow! These past 6 weeks were just so quick, fast, like a bullet. Seriously! Anyone else feel like it was just a blur?
So why I am blogging? It’s not required. I don’t really have a topic. So, why? I’m not sure. When we were first assigned to sign up for a blog, I was really reluctant. What do I write about? Will anyone read it (besides those who are forced to)? Will it be any good? After a few times, I surprised myself and really got into it. It’s almost cathartic.
So, what now? Will I keep up with this blog now that’s it’s not part of a grade? You know what? I think I will. I think that I am lucky. I met some awesome people in all different stages of the ETEC program. I learned a lot. With me just starting in ETEC, I can use this as a journal chronicling my journey. I can measure how much I have learned and how far I have come. At the beginning of this summer, I thought I knew, what’s the word I’m looking for, stuff. After taking ETEC 442, then ETEC 642, I found that I didn’t know close to JACK! Hopefully, I will be able to look back and go, “Wow! Look at all the things I learned! Look at the awsome PLN! It’s HUGE now.”
So, for those of you who were kind enough to read my thoughts and insights, I thank you. Seriously. And if you are still curious as to where my journey will lead me or just think I’m funny, I hope you continue to stay and watch where this takes me.
