The End of One, The Beginning of Another
Last night I finished my 3rd class of 12. I was studying Servant Leadership. Now, there is a topic to stir up controversial conversation! This was an intense class with a ton of papers and presentations. For the most part, the class had to teach each other this time around. Then they added the element of technological difficulty. 6 of the next 9 classes will be web-based in the classroom. While I support technological advances, this is like watching REALLY BAD TV for 4 hours. It is dim and blurry. You cannot really see the students at the other location, so when they talk, you do not know who is talking. It is hard to pay attention when the visual aspect is distorted. I wonder if it would be possible for the college to change the lighting in the classrooms to make it easier to see? After 4 hours of bad TV, my eyes are sore, my head aches, and I can hardly wait to get home! The next class is going to be Organizational Behavior and Change. Interesting! We shall see! Two weeks, and I will be in CO for a couple of days. I am quite excited! I will get to see family and old familiar places. Time to move all the plants indoors. I was afraid I would lose all my hanging plants to frost and cold, so, I moved them inside and hung them in front of my dining room window. I found a hanging clothes rack that works perfectly to hang plants on and under it I have a small table that holds several more smaller plants then off to each side, there are plants on stands. My goal is to hopefully keep them alive through the winter so I can put them back out in the Spring. Wish me luck.
