Sooo…I’m pretty tired. Went to work today, came home, listened to an interactive lecture, and now…yeah, I need a shower: I realized after I got home that my sweat was activating mildew in my sweater (WHO DRIED MY SWEATER???) okay.
I don’t go to work tomorrow, but will need to listen to another lecture and work on my Cataloging homework exercises, plus the Cataloging reading that I missed tonight (28 pages, not too bad). And…I’ve got to identify a second digital collection other than my image collection, to talk about in my Discussion post (I am one of the five people who haven’t posted, yet). The Cataloging stuff can run over into Monday, and that’s fine; but my Metadata work (the lecture and Discussion) needs to be done tomorrow. It might be best to prioritize it this way:
- view Metadata lecture #2 (no need to copy the slides by hand)
- answer the Metadata discussion post, referencing the reading (images, and either audio files or blog files, would be the topic…audio would be useful, as I have titles in multiple languages, music in varying formats, and some from CDs + some from iTunes [CROSS-PLATFORM FTW])
- start on the Cataloging exercises
- resume/finish the Cataloging reading assignment
- check and make sure that Cataloging isn’t a prerequisite for Metadata
If I have time, I should start reading in my Research Methodologies text, but I don’t think it’s been assigned, yet. In any case, what I’ve marked down is doable. The major issue was having those two entire days knocked out of my schedule (though I’ve realized now that the doing-chores-at-3-AM thing was probably a manic episode…meaning sleeping nearly the entire next day could have been either chemical, or from exhaustion).
Right now, I should take a shower and get the effin’ mildew off of me…I don’t trust myself to start on my Cataloging exercises after I get out (or to be aware enough to listen to the other lecture, for that matter), but I can do some reading.
