Well, after a very late evening, I have finished the cultural research project. It seems not very long ago that I thought I would never be able to get it done! However, the time has come and now I get to talk about it being complete and moving onto the next phase of the class. I found it to be fairly simple to insert images into my blog. I think the only hangup I had was trying to find the copyright symbol, so I just wrote it out. I also had to do some adjusting with sizes as well. However, Los Alamos National Laboratory apparently has some very strict copyright guidelines because there was no way to copy my graphs needed for the “technology” section. I am pretty tech-savvy and was able to get them into a word document, but no matter what I did, the image would not copy correctly onto my blog. It was the only place I could find related graphs as well, so hopefully that won’t ding me too horribly.
Legos, now we get to talk about legos! I used legos all the time! I had a pink and purple lego house with a “glass” (ok, so it was plastic) elevator in it and all sorts of lego accessories. My brother had a lego castle! Yes, I know what you’re thinking…talk about gendered toys! The only part about them that wasn’t gendered was the fact that my brother and I played with both of them, equally. I think I loved that castle as much as my fancy lego mansion. I work with kids and have nephews now, so I still get to play with them every once in a while.
