Thursday marks the end of week 3, unit 3 of LC101, and almost exactly one month since my last post. There’s been a lot of life stuff in between. The big event was my boyfriend’s and my trip to Breckenridge, Colo., a.k.a. the promised land, a.k.a. the place where I learned how not to dress like a ski n00b the hard way (post on that forthcoming).
It’s been two weeks now of … text book. You know, like any old regular, boring class!
I used to be able to doing old regular, boring classes pretty well. I could grind through weeks — months — YEARS of boring stuff like cell mitosis or whatever. No. Freaking. More. Call it my dwindling internet-afflicted attention span, but these days I need my learning to be attached to results that are both concrete and — kicker here — interesting.
Pro tip! Buy your Udemy courses in a private window/incognito mode because their tech-savvy butts know if you’ve looked at a course before and will charge you more the next time you look.
Like, oh man. How did they know I wanted to make…whatever this thing is?
I think I feel compelled to describe all this because I want to give myself (and maybe you as well, dear reader) permission to learn the pretty stuff first.
And even though I will copy and paste that stuff all day long, I think I may have even learned something despite myself.
