Did I say for thing #2 that I have confidence in myself as a competent and effective learner? That confidence was severely shaken during the process of setting up my blog. Being completely new at this, I confused Blogger and Blogster. So, I registered with one and tried to log in with the other. Duh!!! I thought I was losing my mind, and agonized over how to break the news to Dr. Griffith and Dr. Claes --- the news that they had awarded a grant to someone with the mental capacity of a string bean. After many painful attempts, it finally dawned on me what I was doing wrong. Yes, blondie had struck again!
Creating the avatar was much more fun. I spent all afternoon trying on different outfits. (They all looked good on "me", even the swim suits --- what an experience!) I even managed to export the avatar to my blog. Maybe there is still hope for me?
