The other day my to do list looked like this, and consisted of a huge pile of Post-It notes stuck on the door of my computer desk. After a few days of steady work, I’m pleased to say the Post-It notes are all in the rubbish, the door is clear, and I can get back to my normal routine. Yes!
I’m on leave this week and, aside from relaxing, my aim was to get through my to-do list which was looking a little awesome. I had my usual weekend, Sunday and Monday, so today’s my first real day of leave. I have:
- Completed my LIANZA Professional Registration revalidation journal
- Prepared my talk and some activities for tomorrow’s Amish event at the library, which I’m speaking at despite not being at work
- Competed the text for my LIANZA conference lightning presentation and checked it’s all 20 seconds per slide
- Participated in a conference call for the Emerging Leaders Working Group
- 99% completed my first assignment for the #HyperLibMOOC
I’ve also slept in every day, watched the America’s Cup races on my laptop in bed, chatted with my best friend Sandra, and tidied up my art desk.
I’m about to:
- Work on the mixed media slides for my LIANZA presentation
- Do the last 1% of my first MOOC assignment
- Email my partner from the ILN project and see how she’s doing
- Make a start on the newspaper which is due at the printers on Sunday
- Launch into the readings for Module 4 of the MOOC
Tony says I’m scary when I’m on a roll…
Last year, for my presentation at the LIANZA annual conference, I made 20 mixed media slides based on chooks and was really happy with them. I decided there was a topic I felt equally passionate about that I wanted to present on this year and my proposal was accepted. In it, I said my presentation would include 20 mixed media slides – same as last year. My presentation is titled “Wear your heart on your sleeve” and I decided to make fairly plain backgrounds and decorate each one with a unique heart. I’ve made about 8 and, although they’re fine as hearts, the whole thing just isn’t grabbing me.
I’ve been really frustrated and procrastinating. Now time is relatively short, as conference is about a month away. I have decided to scrap what I’ve done and start afresh. Wish me luck!
Gelli plate, acrylic paints, oil pastels, cardboard, Derwent Art Bars and a great deal of mess 😉
I have digitally combined a few favorite images that mean something to me, to remember Dad this Father’s Day. You really were the best. With love, always. C
