Thing #5

Flickr is a photo and video sharing site that will allow me to share photos with others. I just created my first Flickr account and uploaded a few summer vacation pictures. One of my favorite places we visited was Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. I searched for Peggy's Cove and found many awesome photos to remind me of the lovely visit.

Thing #3

Setting up a blog was a new experience for me, but is was not a difficult task. However, I don't like to write or journal so the hardest part is making myself write these entries. The avatar was also new territory for me, but an enjoyable expeirence. What I enjoyed the most about this experience was reading the blogs of fellow players. :)

Thing #2

Having always had a passion for learning, I have called myself a lifelong learner for many years. However, until reading the 7 1/2 Habits of Successful Lifelong Learners, I had never considered writing a learning contract with myself. I have for many years used books, technology, continuing education and college courses, mentors, and friends to increase my knowledge base and continue to grow and learn.

Considering the value of play was an eye-opener for me; that will be the hardest habit to develop. I have always heard all work and no play...but I don't take time to play and will have to work to develop this new habit. I believe I will make a learning contract with myself to help achieve this new goal.
