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 […]

School & More Reading

Reg­is­tra­tion clos­es tomor­row, so I have to decide before the end of the day whether or not I’m tak­ing class­es for the sum­mer semes­ter or not. Bah. I want a break, but if I’m not in school my stu­dent loans come out of defer­ment. I’ve been reading—and lov­ing—Patri­cia Brig­gs’ Mer­cy Thomp­son books. They’re a lot […]

Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately—my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to […]

Memitude: Who am I?

From and : You know how some­times peo­ple on your friend’s list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sud­den you think “Wait a minute? Since when are they work­ing THERE? Since when are they dat­ing HIM/HER? since when???” And then you won­der how you could have missed all that […]

Blah

That’s pret­ty much my opin­ion today. Blah. Blah blah blah. I could­n’t wake up enough to dri­ve safe­ly, so I missed an appoint­ment that will take months to resched­ule. For every assign­ment we do in the tech writ­ing course I’m tak­ing, we turn in a rough draft and receive two peer reviews and feed­back from […]

Cohousing?

I’m work­ing on my final project for the tech­ni­cal writ­ing course, which is a com­par­i­son of cohous­ing devel­op­ments to sin­­gle-fam­i­­ly and more tra­di­tion­al mul­ti-fam­i­­ly hous­ing. I’m find­ing it dif­fi­cult to find any of the books I want to use as ref­er­ences in the library (school or two coun­ties). Do any of you who are local […]

School Happy

I final­ly got the grades from the first tech­ni­cal writ­ing assign­ment I turned in last week, and the peer reviews I did on two of my class­mates’ rough drafts. I got full points for all of them! I was wor­ried about one of the peer reviews because the per­son chose to do a set of instructions […]
