So now that the kitchen remodel is well underway and I am not designing, planning and researching, I feel the urge to take on my next project. The problem is there are just so many things I want to learn about I can't narrow it down. I figure writing it all down will help me be able to prioritize!
Professionally, I want to get my PHR -Professional in Human Resources- Certification and eventually PMP - Project Management Professional - Certification. So I need to jump in and actually order the study materials, crack open the books and set a test date. Ahh deadlines and commitment...two of my very favorite things.
Personally, I have a few areas that I would like to focus on right away. Taking a photography class and learning how to use my DSLR camera. I know there are many options, I just can't decide the best path to take. There are classes offered through the Smithsonian which I think would be totally amazing. Also classes offered through NOVA Community College. I'm sure there are also resources on the Internet. Has anyone taken a actual class or found good tutorials online? Let me know!
Paper Source in December. I will totally be going again this year, but they also have some fun classes this summer. Both a Summertime Party Invitation Workshop and a Sassy Personal Stationary Girls Night Out in July - hummm decisions decisions. Anyone want to come with me?
Jo-Ann's recently opened a new super center in Fair Lakes. It is huge-and much nicer than their last place in Centerville. They offer classes, and I think I will take the Basic Sewing Class - I know how to sew-just haven't done it in a few years. I need to make some basic items with my little machine and then consider upgrading down the road. My plan is to one day (soon) get an embroidery machine so I can monogram everything to high heaven. But I feel like I need to be consistent with the basics before I go overboard.
I also need to add some books to my summer reading list. It may be a good thing for me to get a real library card. I was so proud of myself for joining the Falls Church Library after going to the farmers market a few weeks ago only to learn that they are not associated with any other library's so I can't download books to my e-reader from them. PS-did you know you can "check out" downloads for your e-reader and kindle from the library for free - pretty awesome!
places mentioned in the book-should be an adventure!
What's something that you want to learn more about?
