tangled

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)
  • Twitter
    •  #sachat
    • 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
