Here are my metaphorical irons in the proverbial fire.
GadgetsI’m still awash in the technology upgrade that I blogged about in my last post. I’ll be reaching the end of these tasks soon. All that is left now is to test drive out the Millenicom Mi-Fi device that arrived in yesterday’s mail. I’ll try to do that today.
As for the new HP laptop, I'm still trying to figure out stuff like the intricacies of Windows 8. And how to edit photos.
But I’ve transferred files, photos, and software I’ll need for the road. My dream of having a mobile office gets closer to reality every day. Fingers crossed it all works out.
I’m enjoying the Kindle Fire and have found some free apps that should be useful on the road. I’ll share these in a later post.
With the exception of teaching my last class this past summer, I haven’t worked for 12 months. The time has zipped along at a rather scary pace!Note: For those of you who have joined me recently, my career plans changed suddenly, irrevocably, and without warning when I lost my job teaching nursing. Faced with this new set of circumstances, rather than taking a traditional academic role, I decided to get that RV I'd been saving for and launch an online teaching career. My reasoning is that this would combine two favorite activities: teaching and traveling. It looks good on paper!
Surprisingly, snagging an online position has been more difficult and time-consuming than I imagined. Since May, I’ve applied to 14 different graduate and undergraduate programs resulting in only 1 interview.
Things are looking up though. I don’t want to jinx it but I’m hoping to have good news in the next several weeks. Stay tuned.
