Back in August!

Hi All, I'm going to step away from the ELounge until mid-August -- taking some time for some editing and coding that I need to do, and some photography for fun, and downtime before school starts. Back in mid-August if not before!

Cheering you on!

What are your favorite (school-related) apps?

Hi All, later this summer I'll write a post listing the school/productivity apps that I find most helpful. I'm looking for suggestions to add to the list? What apps help you stay organized, get your work done, etc -- what tools help you with school?

Stress management -- one step at a time

I'm back after being away for almost two weeks -- a conference, a vacation, and time traveling to and from.... so today I face the task of sorting through two very full email inboxes as well as other items on my to-do list. This feeling reminds me of those days that any of us feel overwhelmed -- too many projects going, deadlines at work and school, plus family responsibilities, the list seems endless. Adult students are always juggling. My reminder -- to myself and to you for today -- is to take it one step at a time. Just get started, and chip away, each little thing you do, takes something off the to-do list. Keep at it!
