I’ve thought a lot about bags lately. Specifically, a work bag that will fit my monstrosity of a laptop. Apparently I am picky. I can’t seem to find a bag to fit my wish list.

Overcoming Social Anxiety

“Don’t worry, I’ll annoy them if I don’t hear back,” I assured my boss. I was a few short months into my new job, and attempting to get software installed.

Things Are Changing – New Site Announcement

For some time I have wanted to have my own personal blog type of thing. And, selfishly, I LOVE my domain. OhThatRachel.com? How awesome is that. Seriously.

Plus, OhThatRachel.com sounds like more of a personal blog than an instructional design blog anyways.

So, I finally did it. OhThatRachel.com has now been transferred to ecoursery.com! It’s the exact same, just a new name.

E-learning and instructional design friends, please update your bookmarks – I will be slowly transitioning this into my personal blog.

Though you’re welcome to stick around. I’d love to have you.

<3 – Rachel

Note: I will not be deleting posts, but I will be slowly hiding them from this site.

"Wait! Where did your e-learning and instructional design stuff go??" - to ecoursery.com!
