Day 59 (I think?): SparkStreak for today, learning about my SP!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Impromptu to do: Track down my days. I'm sick of figuring it out in my head.

Did you know I only learned the term "Spark Streak" today? Like, 5 minutes ago?

It's true!

I joined SP at the end of August and officially did program on 1st of September. Those times are the times University students and chin deep into schoolwork. So I was, plus work demands etc so I didn't spend a lot of time in SP.

This is the first thing I see when I log into my SP.

And most of the time I'm pressed for time so that is as far as I go. I might track my activities and water consumption, and then I quickly check on my Spark Friends. This is usually in between brushing teeth, dressing up, making's good to have a laptop.

When I do have time to sit down and explore SP, I'm ALWAYS lost. If I venture beyond my page, my Spark Team pages and my friends pages I'm gone. Into the wild, wild, SP woods and it's hard for me to return to wherever I meant to go again.

SP is so big it seems like an overwhelming place sometimes!

This morning, I brave myself and scrolled down my front page:

Yup, how did I NOT know those toolbars (sections?) existed? And lookie there, I actually have "Goals" to achieve and "actions steps" to act on. Gosh, if I knew that 2 months ago I wouldn't be so lost.

And to make me feel even sillier, there are paper versions of SP functions in the printable resources:

I used to stress about posting in SP before and worrying that I might forget things, so I bought a little notebook to note my progress when I'm offline. That notebook is VERY messy and unstructured. I could have use some printables and make my life much easier!

So right, today's exercise is to acclimate myself with SP environment. emoticon Here I go!
