ILP-Brainstorming ALL Week

I’ve been thinking all week about ideas for my ILP topic. I don’t want to be boring, but not totally wild and crazy with my idea.

Things that are important to me are my friends and family, ranching, photography, coaching, and my faith. As a college student I always try to give my 100% best and remain as positive as I can, always seeing the bright side of things. Things I really enjoy are photography, horses, cows, cats (I’m a crazy cat lady!!), music, and sports. Thinking this week I was really wanting to learn more about my favorite things.

I decided to do a little googling just to see if there was something else out there that I might be interested in. Below I have listed a few of those topics.

  • Inspirational quotes
  • bible verses, the bible in general
  • perspective-photography
  • create new lists every week (each list being a different topic)
  • how-tos
  • bacon
  • recipes

I loved all of these ideas, and from my favorites and the list, I really liked music and recipes. So for my ILP I have decided to combine cooking and music. I plan to share recipes for small and large crowds, and music, when/what it is appropriate for, as well as incorporating those into the classroom.

Every night while doing homework, I’m usually cooking supper and listening to music. Tonight, I was grilling chicken and potatoes, listening to some great country music, and somewhat trying to come up with a blog topic. When I’m in the kitchen cooking or baking, it gets my mind off of everything else, and is so relaxing. And 95% of the time when I’m in the kitchen, I have some form of music playing. I usually end up dancing around singing, flinging food, just having fun.

Now when I’m asked what kind of music I enjoy, I can’t say that I have just one favorite kind of music. If you were to log in on my Pandora, you’d see anything from classic country, to piano music, to Volbeat, and back to 50s and 60s malt shop music. I love music and without it, I wouldn’t be me! Another time I really enjoy listening to music is when I’m in the tractor. Most of the time, I drive a swather that has an excellent radio that picks up local FM stations and even some AM stations. I’ve been caught several times jamming out while mowing, getting a head shake and a laugh from my co-worker Jon. There was even one day in the pickup, I was singing along to a song, and the next and a little bit of another one, he looks at me and goes, “Is there any song you don’t know?” I just giggled and replied, “Nope!”

As the semester goes on, I can’t wait to share recipes and my love for music with ya’ll!

  1. I think that’s a great topic for your Independent Learning project. I also enjoy cooking so I will be interested to follow your posts throughout the semester. Perhaps I can pickup a few or more recipes that I can try out, as well as new genres of music or songs.
