Do Epic Stuff
Sorry I’ve been away from the blogosphere over the holiday. It wasn’t my best. BUT–I did knock out some law school studying (I’m sure my Evidence final WON’T reflect that) and I over-ate like everyone else and watched way too many Hallmark holiday movies, but the holiday is what it is.
One of my mentors asked me what I was up to these days, as email can’t capture everything that’s floating through my head at one time. (Thank God.) So, I thought it was an interesting question. I’m about to throw down some epic stuff going through my head right now. If you have ways to help me get this stuff out of my head and into the universe, of course, I’m all ears as always to my eBaker’s Dozen!
Free Condoms: There’s No App For That…in Indiana: Law & Public Health class tonight – we’re launching indycondom.com. Yup. Not only was this a public health legal issue, but we’re making it real. Dig. I’m a little obsessed with smartphones, social media and health care right now, since all the SM gurus say the #1 way we’ll access the ‘net by 2013 is via a mobile device instead of just a laptop, and this topic we thought was a cool group project.
Children’s Pharmacy Book Project: right now, the 9 students are at illustration phase of this project. Publication process is coming soon. Trying to figure out if we should eBook it perpetually and run one line of book-books, or do something else. Traditional publishing just isn’t cost effective for the budget we have right now. I don’t know how little kids read books these days – do they just get iPads now? Kindles? Can’t. Figure. This. Out. Never wrote or produced a kids book before. New stuff. Experiment, anyone?
Pinterest: I discovered over the holiday a new time vampire: pinterest. I heart it, but hours can go by and I’m reorganizing my boards. Dear Pinterest, I think I love you, but you’re a vacuum. Actually, I have found it good for collecting ideas on creating my own valentine, which is coming soon, methinks. What’s a valentine? Well, you’ll just have to be a fan and find out!
Pharmacy, Policy and the Law: gearing up to take this class on as coordinator in the spring at work. I’m not afraid to say it: this class is going to be intimidating to coordinate. Not so much with the content itself–but the volume of it. However, I must balance the code along with the students’ interests and ability to articulate how to argue for their profession. Nothing like drinking from a firehose. My mentors in this realm told me not to sweat the small stuff – but in many ways, law is ALL small stuff.
What to make for the annual B&B: Every year, one of my girlfriends and I get together for our annual Bake & _____. I’ll let you figure out the other B word. I’ve been stalking Pinterest for this reason too. One of my friends calls Pinterest “food porn.” I think it’s an awesome place for recipes. See Pinterest above for more.
ShaunWhite Whitemint Gum: Just picked it up. Possibly the coolest gum ever. Gum really isn’t epic, but Shaun White is. I digress.
How to get 5,000 followers at Tweetown: I spend most of my twitter energy @yuspie–although I have other accounts. All I really want for Christmas? 5,000 followers at @yuspie. That’s all. Just have to figure out how to get there, and get the right people on the yuspie twitter bus. Of course, I can pay for it – but that sucks all the fun out of it. I think the best way to build a good tribe is have epic stuff to say.
Yeah, aren’t you glad you asked what was floating through my head today? I’ll spare you the monster stuff that I haven’t even approached here – it’s just TMI for the Monday after a holiday weekend.
Happy cyber Monday!
