I feel like a mess of tangled hair right now. Tangled roots? Definitely not feeling so much like a tree.
There are a lot of interesting conversations going on in the student affairs world right now. The “input” side of me (yes, I took strengthsquest. empathy, input, strategic, developer, individualization) loves scouring twitter, facebook, and the blogs I follow for new and interesting information to do my job better or just learn. I’m a carnivore when it comes to learning. I eat up knowledge like a T. Rex devours…well, you get it. In some ways, this is one of my favorite things about myself – other times, it gets a little overwhelming.
Right now would be one of those overwhelming times. I feel like there’s so much going on that I can’t read it all fast enough. I want to talk about it all, form clear and coherent thoughts and opinions, share them, contribute to the conversation. But I can’t — it’s like I’m on information overload. And a midst that information overload, I’m not sure there’s much doing…just informing.
So, here’s my list of things I want to explore a little more. I’m going to have to be okay with the list for tonight, and work on the rest as it comes.
- Credentialing in Student Affairs
- Assessment in Student Affairs (proving our worth)
- using social media in general to “reach” students
- Learning to become a “real-life” photographer…and the cost of the equipment to get me there
- 10 Rules for Brilliant Women
Okay, that’ll have to do for now.
until then, ekt
