Hitting the Books

I’ve been wanting to do this for sometime.

I knew I needed to get some new courses under my belt and I knew I wanted to improve on some my current skills both in the social media space and in the creative space. So I’ve gone ahead and done it. I’m now a registered student at UBC Robson Square in the Continuing Education program.

What am I taking? Well at first I signed up for their Adobe Photoshop Level 1 course. I knew that I needed to improve my skills at manipulating photographs that I’ve taken and also use them at creating dynamic content for my blog. Yes it all first started off when I was going through my blog and new that I wanted to improve it and make it more visual. I’m also hoping that I’ll be able to complete their Level 2 program sometime in the fall and add it to my resume and skill set.

I noticed that when I was looking for work, many had Photoshop as a “nice have” skill. And I truly believe it is nice to have.

But I didn’t stop there, no I also decided to sign up for their Social Media Strategy and Marketing course. Yeah some of you might say that I already know my stuff and that I don’t need to take it, but I want to have this on my resume as a course and a course from a reputable institution. Now this course is all online, and I’m a little apprehensive of taking it as I normally don’t do well in these types of courses. I do much better in a classroom setting and with others around as we all learn from each other.

Since the summer is just about to start I thought it would be a perfect time to actually go back to school. I’m scared and excited at the same time. So you might not see much of me online, or you might start seeing more as I reach out to you all during this time.

Wish me luck as I begin my new journey and chapter in life starting next week!!!!

  1. This sounds awesome. What a great summer plan. Im a bit envious.
    Good luck in your courses, although I know you are going to do great, because I’ve learned so much from you.

    • Ahhhh, Thanks Laura. I’m excited to begin and I’m glad I was able to help you too. We need to have another coffee and catch up soon!
