Kind of. You can define your own school. So if you’re into Youtube and watching Youtubers you probably heard about Skillshare. I am in love and I am back to being a student.
I love the range of classes you can take on Skillshare and it’s not all that expensive. To be honest, I used a Youtubers code to get a free trial but I do not plan on cancelling my subscription at all. I have classes on cooking, making YT videos (you know I am getting into that), digital marketing, videography etc. I already have my boards created for different topics. I am in love with Skillshare.
After dropping out of grad school, I stopped learning in this way. You know, having a notebook in front and investigating a topic, writing down notes, highlighting stuff. I never knew how much I missed being a student. I would not change my decision of dropping out and entering the labor market full time but I did miss studying. What’s amazing about this is that I can actually decide what I want to learn and for how long. For all of you thinking that this is sponsored, it’s not. Who would sponsor me?
I really like Skillshare so I wanted to let you all know about it in case you have some free time and wish to learn a new skill and go back to school with me. I just finished two courses on SEO that helped me understand SEO more than an actual seminar I paid a bunch of money for (if you remember I got certified in digital marketing a year ago).
Also, have been learning about Italian cuisine there. I love pasta, I love Italian food and pasta is life so I have also been enjoying the course from a chef breaking down basic Italian recipes so even cooking dummies like me can do it well.
Since I am spending Advent away from my family because of some shit, I miss the Christmas spirit and I went out and bought myself some cheap Christmas decorations to have in my room. Guys, I also have my first plant, bought it a few days ago and it’s still alive. #adult
After my shift is done today I have to do something that I know is going to be annoying. Due to the rising number of cases in Croatia, starting on Saturday the stores will have severe restrictions on how many people can enter which means that we are going back to lines in front of grocery stores. My mom already mentioned that some stores started early with this so I have to go today and buy as much as I can carry and need so I don’t have to do any type of shopping during next week. I am so tempted to buy my groceries online, but I eat a lot of fruit and veggies and I want to see what I am getting and I want to see the labels on the food I am buying because I am trying to eat less processed foods and I am also trying to eat food that didn’t travel to the store across 15 different countries aka I am trying to eat mostly plants, meat and other foods that are Croatia-made. It sounds ridiculous but we are in a pandemic and my digestion was always my problem which had terrible consequences on my immune system so I am trying my best to stay as healthy as possible, follow the social distancing guidelines and everything else.
Wow, I just wanted to let you know I started studying again and here I am ranting about my diet. Anyways, that is it for me today. Just want to mention quickly that I am sorry if anyone was affected, annoyed or triggered by the negativity and gender-based hate comments on my yesterday’s post for #savingme. I want this to be a safe space for you and I felt like I had to defend you and my opinion to preserve this platform I am trying so hard to create and it ended up with even more hate comments which was not my intention. I just wanted to say that and now I am really going.
