Good Morning World,
I am one of those annoying people that has a smile on their face and a cheerful “good morning” on their lips every day. Most people enjoy my positive attitude and I hope that I cheer someone’s morning just a little bit. Then there are those who actually resent my cheer and good will, the “whats good about it” (with a fake chuckle or laugh).
This morning is cloudy and rainy. I couldn’t ride my scooter as I don’t enjoy getting wet. I should say that I didn’t ride my scooter, if I enjoyed getting wet I would have ridden it. This is not overly unusual for St George this time of year, being a little damp. Yesterday got up to 86° which was just comfortable. When I first moved here from Portland, Oregon, I thought that I would never acclimate. The first day I pulled in it was 115° and that was in September. Over time I have now come to see 86° as comfortable, even a little cool. Our favorite saying… “its a dry heat”, when someone told me that years ago I thought “yes, but it is still hot”.
A busy week
This week is going to be busy for me. I have several things that must get done. I am working on a Logo for the new industrial maintenance program we are starting at the DXATC. I just took a design class, as most of you know, so now I have the opportunity to put my new found knowledge to the test. I am a firm believer that if you go to school that you should put that new skill or knowledge to work right away. If you don’t you will lose it really fast. I know that we could hire someone to do the logo, and probably will but at least I can give it a try first. You never know what will happen.
I also have to work on the on-line portion of this program. Now that is the fun part for me. I am using a program called blackboard and even though we are going to be moving to a new LMS (learning management system) next year. I am investing the time now to get it up and running. They tell me that I will be able to migrate my class over. I don’t know if i want to do that or just start over with the new and improved features. Maybe I will migrate the old one and work on a new one at the same time. Now that would be a blast. ”
For those of you that don’t know. One of the reasons that I am going to college is to get a degree in operations management and visual technologies. I believe that this will help me to make more effective on line learning modules, which is my ultimate goal. It is what i want to do when I grow up…
I hope that everyone that reads this enjoys every minute of their day, and for those that don’t read this… Well I hope the same for you.
Have a wonderful day all…
