A Hot Mess of Weeks 11 & 12

The last two weeks were hectic but productive.  Lots to share so here it goes.

2 Daily Creates completed each week. Week 11’s Daily Creates included Safe Haven and Forgetting to Look In. Forgetting to Look In was my favorite because I do find myself getting frustrated with going back to school at my age while trying to juggle life as a single mom. The picture is me graduating from Head Start and it just reminds me of how far I’ve come and that I can’t give up.

I was busy creating videos with my new obsession iMovie. I did the Lyric Video Snippet worth 3 stars and blogged about it. I did the Sports Mashup video assignment worth 3 1/2 stars and not only blogged about it but made Melinda and Kisha watch it to see if they teared up like I did watching it. Then I grouped up with my fellow old biddies for extra credit to do the Swede video assignment. As always, we had a blast working together and it’s always fun when you can make people in a bus station look at you like you are crazy…lol. You can read all about it in my blog post. And with as many out takes as we had I could totally do a blooper reel. In fact, maybe I think that would be a good idea for a video assignment…hmmmm…..


I only had one video to finish coming into today but the flu hitting my house would prevent that from happening. If everything is germ free tomorrow and things are back to normal I’ll be able to wrap that up.

I noticed that there were updates for Jetpack and Askimet this week so I installed those. I also favorited quite a few of my classmates work in Twitter.

Then came the sticky part. I picked Grigg’s girlfriend, Cheryl, to do my final project on. The problem is that her last name isn’t listed on any of the websites about The Wire and without a last name I haven’t been able to set up her sites. I’m not going to give up though. I will see if I can track it down in a picture or go back in the scenes where her last name might have been said to get it. I even tweeted The Wire fan page to see if they can help. If I can’t get it then I will have to hit up Groom for other options.

That about wraps it up. The work seems like is took much, much longer than it appears in this post. Funny how that happens.

  1. If you can’t find Cheryl’s last name, then you’re free to give her one. The nice thing about adopting a character like her is that the possibilities are almost endless. We know she’s a mom, we know she’s gay, and I think she works in TV news. The rest you get to fill in however you like.
