Tonight is the night
October 3, 2017 6:48pm CST
At the moment, I am still on campus using the Vet Center computers, and I thought that I would take a few minutes before I left to write this before I leave. I have already cleared my notifications and am finally caught up completely. I gave my Toshiba back to DZ to take another look at it. My space bar doesn't work, so he is going to try to fix it for me and hopefully we can get it up and running soon. However...TONIGHT is the night! I am going to see about setting up my new HP laptop tonight. I may not be able to get my Microsoft Office downloaded from the campus site, but I want to be able to use it so I can get on the Internet and also check my Gmail. What many do not know about me is that I am intimidated by new technology. Though I consider myself a fairly intelligent woman, technology changes so rapidly and I cannot keep up with it. I want to plug it in and have it make sense. I do not have a problem with trying to learn things, but I am a big picture person who will jump in, but my experience with computer technology is that it is a step-by-step process to which most must adhere. So, I am going to go home, put my marinated organic chicken in the halogen cooker, put a pot of rice on the stove, and try to get the computer up and running. At some point, I have a couple of chapters to read and outline to turn in for my Ethics class tomorrow. I also want to watch the last two episodes of the first season of Wallander. AND...I will try to write something before the end of the evening. Have a great evening/morning, wherever you are!

I tell people, "I am technologically challenged, but willing to learn!" My daughter is a librarian, she tells me that the biggest difference is...I am willing to learn...so many aren't even willing to try. We will learn....and succeed.

I am challenged with new technology as well. However, with a little tutoring I am a quick learn. Have to find the right person/tutorial to teach me though. I am waiting for disc 3 and 4 to the first season of "This is Us" to get here this week. I watched episode 2 of season 2 last night after the Voice. Missed the first episode of season 1. Love this show.
