Here are this month’s snap stories of personal learning for December 2018.
Every week and every month, I like to review these videos to see what I have been doing every day. It’s a great way to capture all my work and learning – and also to see progress towards my goals.
Every month I allocate an hour to review these daily videos I take on Snapchat and share these here on my blog. I use these videos as an online portfolio of my work – an online CV if you will.
Many of these are not shared across other social networks unless there’s something specific to that particular social media community I’d like to share. In effect, these are my own “sharing of my work out loud” videos and not for the purposes of marketing but rather of personal and professional development.
No specific details about any client work are shown here without their permission. If you would like to know further information about anything I mention in these videos, contact me.

Today I talk about doing OneNote 2016 training on Lynda.com and how I access the free courses on this site which many people may not know.
Wednesday 5 December 2018
Today I share how my cat has chewed through my Surface Pro cables and I had to go and buy a new one thanks to the help of my colleagues while I was in the shop telling me what to buy. Becoming a grumpy old woman by complaining about car parking; the confusion of different OneNote versions and likened it to the scene of the IT Crowd because I was using the wrong OneNote….and then how I scan my paper notes into OneNote.

Today I talk about the freaky reconnection of an old Naval colleague who found my diary entries from HMAS Creswell when I went through Navy training back in 1999. It’s like I’m reliving my old days there! We have dinner at the Yarra Yarra Golf Club and I talk about The Catcher in the Rye.
