Week 2, Thing #3

Wow! This wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I actually enjoyed creating my Avatar. It was definitely a nice change from reading about cataloging and classification. I must admit that the homework in this class is going to be a bit more enjoyable.

As I was creating my Avatar I began experimenting with all sorts of crazy hairstyles, outfits, and outlandish jewelry. When it was all said and done, I ended up looking exactly like myself: long brown hair with glasses and less than exciting clothing. It's funny how on the Internet you can totally transform yourself if you so choose...or you can be completely satisfied and content with being exactly who you are. Though somedays I think it would be fun to be blonde wearing a mini skirt and big earrings, I think I'll stick to being myself...on and off line.


  1. Welcome to Classroom Learning 2.0. Enjoy your discovery learning experience.

  2. I'm the same way about avatars. An early female gamer was frustrated with the limited options for female avatars so she imported a princess dress coding, and her online friends were so envious!

  3. Hey Laura! I think you're pretty cute the way you are!! :-) It's great to be satisfied with who we are - makes life a lot easier!

    For a first blog, you're off to a great start. It can get kind of addicting and I really have to make myself stop and get back to my cataloging classwork. (Somehow it's not nearly so entertaining - lol!)

  4. I had a lot of fun with the avatar too. I had a black cat in mine like you do, since I really do have a black cat IRL. But I took it out in the end cause she doesn't come to my library. :)
