Badges On Hold — I Was Moving!

Well, the last time I was working on our @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist June 2017 Cohort Application Process Reviews, but then I took a screen break and had dinner.

The next thing I knew, my landlord was banging on the walls and telling me that she didn’t like me playing my music at all hours and that my dancing moves were knocking the plaster off her downstairs ceiling. She just kept going on and on and really started to make a nuisance of herself. She said I had too much stuff, and so when I paid her more money to rent out some more space, it was in a different building and she didn’t even realize that!  She didn’t get to the point of threatening to keep all of my stuff, but it was getting a bit testy. Then she kind of stopped talking to me altogether, which was a bit worrying.

(I should mention that I have never had any problems with my landlady before, and that I have had my stuff there for many, many years (like maybe 15 years?), and her service has always been top notch, and I moved other stuff there over the years because of all of that, and that she has always kept the place up to great standards, but maybe there was a change in management, I don’t know.)

Perhaps she really just wanted me out so that she could triple her income by renting my flat out as an AirB&B, but whatever!

I decided to reclaim my independence from her.

I got to packing, and then called up a guy that I know about getting a new home base.

Now most of you #ds106 folks probably know this fellow, because he is one of the founding fathers of #ds106, or, as I like to call him, UNCLE (because he said UNCLE to me back in the day read all about it here) called Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter) and he and his good friend Tim Owens (@Timmmmyboy, on Twitter) have a thing going where they rent out co-working space on the land where they farm servers. So I managed to arrange to move all of my stuff from where it was to where UNCLE Jim and Tim have their stuff, and it took less than 24 hours and it was a smooth ride. We used a cPanel van and it made the whole thing just fine, like Tim and Lauren (@brumface, on Twitter) said. So now I store my stuff there.

But now I am checking to make sure my cell phone lines are still connected and then I can get back to doing the @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist June 2017 Cohort Application Process Reviews when I get around to them.

Where Stuff Came From (kind of like “Attributions”)

Coming Soon: June 2017 Certification for Creatorist Cohort

“Hair Up and Ready to Work”

With the passing of the June 30th deadline (and one day, for grace), I got myself ready to go through the applications for the June 2017 Cohort for @iamTalkyTina Certification for Creatorist.  I put my hair, up, logged into my Official Certification Process app, and got ready to go!

“First Applicant — Me — Passes”

The first application in the queue was from someone familiar — ME!  I passed with flying colours!
HOORAY ME!

“I’m Looking at You, RockyLou22”

After a bit of confusion with the sort order for the applications (some came in through the web form, while others were submitted earlier via comments in my June 1st web post), it turned out that Rochelle (@RockyLou22) was the next one to go under the inspection.

“Christina Has an ALERT”

My #SuperTrueFriend, Christina (@clhendricksbc) was the next one for review, and she did a great job except there was a nasty ALERT that came up on her screen because she didn’t put one in her stir fry.

We got that sorted out in minutes!

“Time for a Screen Break”

Then I had a different notification pop up on my screen, saying that it was time for a screen break. So I shut things down for the day and went to get some food.
