Learning by the seat of your pants can be rewarding, but it can also be exasperating. I am going to go with the exasperating for now, particularly passwords. On the culminating months of my CU Denver INTE trek I am STILL looking up and asking for and getting texted codes when I cannot remember or find my passwords. I used to have an email, bank and school password. At present, I must have more than 20 passwords what with all of the technology that I’ve come to use throughout my coursework.
AAAUUUGGGHHHHH is my cry. I have been elaborate so NO ONE could get into my “stuff”. I ask my kids and they have passwords like “pancake”. Dear Heaven above, why do I complicate my life so much?
