So, as you can tell I took a break from blogging for a bit. Several things lead to this including some side work I was doing researching mobile developers, finishing my spring semester, living in South Korea for a month, summer-mester survey methods class, and moving to El Paso from Dallas including all of the packing and unpacking (not quite done yet) that comes with that. I actually dropped my second summer-mester class, which was very hard for me to do, because I needed a break!
I have a few new projects that got put on hold as well including an in depth analysis and process for Lean Phd, setting up a consulting business as a Netnographer, and a blog I want to start about all of the things user experience research and design has done to make our lives better outside of the computer from gum packaging to packing building materials.
A few other things I want to do are get up to speed on HTML 5 and CSS 3 as well as getting my programming chops wet again by delving into Python. Oh, and now that I live in El Paso, I want to learn Spanish as well.
Let’s just say I could really use Hermione’s time turner right about now.
So out of all of those projects, I realize I need to really focus on one and then move on to the next after that is either completed or I have a really good start on it. I just have no idea how to prioritize any of this yet because I want to do it all!
Combine all of that with my regular full time job as a user experience designer, a full fall semester, and my new research assistanceship delving into virtual research environments, well I suppose I may just have to put all of my extracurriculars on hold for the time being.
Or, maybe I could pick just one?
