WEEK 18: GUESS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T SAVE YOUR WORK?
Original Blog Post: March 28, 2018
I had to do another technological upgrade course at work this week. Our site is moving to electronic charting in the ED. The initial transition a year ago to charting the admitted patients wasn't so bad but if I had a dollar for every time I sighed" I miss paper!" I could probably afford a really fancy dinner out. The 3-hour course on Monday was yet another reminder that I am falling behind technologically speaking. Back in grade 8, I thought that learning to type was for losers and I was certain that I would never miss not having the skill. When my kids learned keyboarding in elementary school, I thought to myself "Hey, maybe you should do one of those online typing courses", but I didn't. I am a classic "hunt and peck" pc user.
I have been trying for days to figure out how to create a playlist on my phone. I've texted Devon for help but Google Music won't load, and to be honest, I often don't understand the lingo or the context of the instructions. I accidentally accrued a $50.00 charge for data because I wanted to listen to a new jazz band I heard about on CBC. Virgin actually put a lock on my phone for 24 hours. Sigh.
And then, last night I was writing my blog and somehow I let the pc reboot without saving my work. So when I went to post it was gone. I went to bed instead of trying to figure it out. That happens a lot now. If I can't figure the technology out, I just do without. Not always a bad thing. At least I can still make a cup of tea.
This week I've been painting a lot but I'm not necessarily happy with the results. The best of the lot is this arbutus. I was trying for something a little more colourful and whimsical.
