Friday the 13th

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Friday the 13ths are always kind of weird.  This one was no exception.  Maybe more in a good way.

Anyway, first off, thanks to SurveyMonkey for giving me another shot to discuss how I use their tool inside and outside of the classroom at the day job. The Pharmacy Law example, RX526, was super helpful in identifying the issues in flipped classrooms.  Ironically, The Atlantic had an article on a similar pharmacy classroom experience with flipped classrooms this week.

Flipped classes are a challenge for pharmacy students out of the gate the first time or two a teacher tries them, but I found that half of students really liked being free from the confines of a classroom to learn.  Regardless, this is how they are going to have to learn AFTER college, so the sooner we can introduce this type of learning and get them used to it, the better.

Also, thanks to Drug Topics magazine, for giving us the shot to share the #21Flavors CE program we had at Butler back in July more broadly with the universe this month in their magazine.  They even squeaked in the 21 Flavors website too, which we are all excited about sharing.

As for the weirdness of Friday the 13th, I spent last week getting re-CPR BLS certified (but, that’s not an invitation for me to try out my mad skillz on you, BTW), and created more work and connections around a new book project I’m working on, and continued to watch the social media dames unconference start filling up – we sold 20% of the tickets already – yay!

As for next week, the weirdness continues.  Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share with you, fab 13, because that’s how I roll!

A Little Mad, A Little Scared

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

photoHello, compadres!

First, I have to vent a little.  Right now, after spending the bulk of my office day on drafting a contract, I’m a little perturbed.  Mainly at my law school, because guess how many contracts I was required to draft during law school?

Yup. One. Uno. That’s it.

I should have had more contract drafting in law school.  I’ll say it.  I think I just did.

I wish they would have had a ‘moot transaction contract draft’ course.  I think I may have been decent at it, but now.  Or, maybe that third year could have been spent actually writing more?  I’ll never know now.  I just have to keep plugging through icky dirty work until I get it figured out.  Thankfully, I have peeps on my side who can help me through the quagmire.  I’d rather be creating art than contracts.  Wow. I think I just said that out loud too.

Now, my second feeling of the day.

I’m also scared.


I’m scared that the Social Media Dames Unconference (#SMDames13 if you want to follow the hashtag over at the tweeting place) is selling out a little too quickly.  I tried to send out a heads up on the registration to my friends right after the press release went out yesterday, but I’m a little concerned that this event is going to max out at capacity sooner than I originally thought.

I suppose that’s a good problem to have, but I want my sisters to get in line first – so here’s the link to tickets one more time, if you’re so inclined to learn more about women rocking social media in Indianapolis on 11/21/13…ssshhhhh.  The faceplace page is filling up too.

This is a good problem to have.

Now, I’m going back to the icky contract.

No pain, no gain!
