Academy Caritas: Free Courses Online

Today’s post at Acad­e­my Car­i­tas lists some free online cours­es that look very good. I’m con­sid­er­ing using some of those to get back into the groove of school until I can go back “for real.” I’m in a good mood, as I’m at the girl’s place and I got to see Steven today. Hap­py day!

Free Courses Online

I’ve been look­ing into online edu­ca­tion late­ly, beyond my exper­i­ment with learn­ing pro­gram­ming (which is still ongo­ing). These are some of the resources I’ve iden­ti­fied. They’re all free, although you don’t get col­lege cred­it for the cours­es. Cours­era — cours­es taught by instruc­tors var­i­ous top uni­ver­si­ties. Khan Acad­e­my — video cours­es on every top­ic under […]

Book Review: Entangled edited by Edie Ramer

Entan­gled by Edie Ramer My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I picked this anthol­o­gy up because all pro­ceeds go to the Breast Can­cer Research Foun­da­tion, which is a won­der­ful cause. Many of the authors’ lives have been touched by can­cer in one way or anoth­er, some first-hand. The vol­ume is Hal­loween-themed, as well. I don’t believe I’ve […]

Happy News

You are read­ing the blog of the newest board mem­ber of Grants to You, a won­der­ful non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion based in Prescott, Ari­zona. I’m going to be doing a lot of work involv­ing the web­site and serv­ing on a new com­mit­tee. I’m tick­led pink! In oth­er news, I got to intro­duce some­one to the Dres­den Files today! […]

Book Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

Dead Reck­on­ing by Char­laine Har­ris My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars For fluff, it’s got some real­ly dark scenes. It does­n’t have enough of a plot to be any­thing more than fluff, though. It absolute­ly does NOT stand alone, so don’t con­sid­er read­ing this book unless you’ve read all that went before it — you’ll be […]

Book Review: Tricked by Kevin Hearne

Tricked by Kevin Hearne My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars That was so good. Just so very good. Like the last three — well plot­ted, with good char­ac­ter devel­op­ment from a fas­ci­nat­ing cast of char­ac­ters. This time most of the mythol­o­gy is Native Amer­i­can (specif­i­cal­ly Nava­jo) instead of Norse or Celtic, but there’s a lit­tle spice […]

Morning Pages Tool

I’ve recent­ly got­ten back into the dis­ci­pline of doing morn­ing pages, some­thing that’s a vital part of Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. It’s a great way to clear your men­tal caches each morn­ing and pre­pare to write some­thing more mean­ing­ful. Tra­di­tion­al­ly, one writes three pages long­hand. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I have trou­ble with that. The arthri­tis in […]

Book Review: Hammered by Kevin Hearne

Ham­mered by Kevin Hearne My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Wow. This book has a non-stop pace, for rea­sons that will be obvi­ous to the read­er but can­not be explained to oth­ers with­out spoil­ers. I’ll just say “clear your cal­en­dar” because you’ll not find ANY good stop­ping places. One of the things that tru­ly impress­es me […]
