About My First Full Week of Classes

I originally thought this post would be formatted as how I described my orientation experience. However, I began writing more paragraphs and fewer bullet points about my own reflections on my coursework rather than the content themselves. So, if you can stand to read lengthy paragraphs about my life, enjoy. The paragraphs do get juicier the more you progress.

About My Social Media Timeline: Week Four Since I Moved to A2

If you haven’t already, please read Part 1Part 2, and Part 3 as I explain the outline of this series.

  • Wednesday, September 5, 2018 (continued)
    • If y’all don’t know it by now,
      • This blog is dedicated to every single person who has supported my dreams these past few years and will serve in lieu of catching up with every one of you during my busy schedule.

    • However, I do have an ulterior motive for my blog, which is to educate my loved ones on social justice issues I’ve learned throughout this program. 😈
    • To begin, I want to highlight a few links I happened to share on my Facebook all on this same day relating to issues that deserve notice.
    • Any time I reference a social justice issue I post on my social media, I will tag it here as #SJW.
      • SJW is a pejorative term I actually agree with. I can’t wait to write a blog post about my disdain for SJWs as a social worker.
      • However, I would like to take back the term’s negative connotation, at least for the sake of my blog posts. 🙂

Alright, back to the light-hearted part of these posts:

About My Social Media Timeline: Week Three Since I Moved to A2

UGH, I’m sorry this is an hour later than I intended! Lol, my current peers think I have it all together, which is funny if y’all knew my past peers. I just hate missing deadlines, even the sillier ones about publishing my blog posts on time. 🙂

If you haven’t already, please read Part 1 and Part 2 as I explain the outline of this series.

About My Social Media Timeline: Week One Since I Moved to A2

Sorry that I didn’t post this at my usual time on Mondays at 8:30 AM EST/7:30 AM CST. I’m still trying to get a rhythm going with this new grad schedule. I also intended to post this today at 8:30 AM EST/7:30 AM CST, but I got caught up in dialogue about anti-racism… but that’s for another blog post.

Another apology: Sorry that all of my posts are lengthy! I’m trying to work on that, so this post is yet again the start of another multiple-day series.

Enjoy as I talk about all the things unrelated to grad school that I’ve been up to! This will be told through the lenses of my social media accounts, so if you religiously follow me on social media (which, ngl, kinda weirds me out coming from a few of you*), some of this might be a repeat of what you see. However, I do want to give a few additional commentaries to some of my posts that I couldn’t explain through a short social media posting.

I figured the best way to organize this is by day starting when I moved to A2 because apparently, I post a riveting IG story at least once every 24 hours. (*You know I can see who views my stories, right? Like this is common knowledge, right?)

You don’t need an IG account to view my public IG posts, but you do need one to view my stories. I only realized halfway since moving to A2 that it would be best to also post my stories onto FB for my friends that have a FB, but not an IG. #somanyacronyms

Anyway, for those of you that missed a 24-hour period of my life since I moved to A2 or who have neither an IG nor FB, here are my stories in its original format. I guess I found another use for my YouTube account after all. It didn’t occur to me until when I began writing this post that I should have been saving my stories. I can’t save my 24-hour stories as one video once the 24 hours is up, so they won’t be presented in their original format. Instead, you’ll see them as aesthetically unpleasing screenshots from my archive. This whole blog thing has been a “learning as I go” kind of thing, so I will remember to save my stories properly next time I ever decide to do a social media blog post like this!
