Online Distance Learning

My younger kid, who will be 21 in a few days, is embarking on a “new way” to earn his college degree. The community college which K is currently enrolled at is now promoting virtual learning method so that students can still pursue education amid the pandemic.

K is completing second year (third term) of the course, Bachelor of Multimedia Arts (BAMMA) through virtual classes. (Visit the school site to know more about the school offering.)

Since June 15, K is taking virtual classes aptly named Online Distance Learning Term, from the comfort of our home. He has his own room with basic things he needs to keep up with the lessons. Unlike the subjects that are taken in a normal school setting, subjects are fewer and discussions per hour are much shorter to meet the demand of online classes, and for students to have more time with their families during the quarantine period.

Hopefully, K is taking this new normal setup well. I think he is slowly adjusting. On our part, hubby and I hope that we can continue to support his education despite the minimal fund coming in. But we are positive that we can all go through with this situation unscathed. We pray the same for everyone out there.

Gear that gets you through hard times

If you are looking for something to wear that is tough and durable when you need to survive in the jungle, you need to check out EDC gear(s) from tacticaldistributors.com. Normal clothing and footwear that you can purchase from regular stores will not be able to endure the torture, which they will face when you are tracking on rough roads. However, the best advantage that you will get from Every Day Carry Gear is the comfort that comes from wearing these gears. Not only are they comfortable, they also provide you with safety that is crucial to keep you alive in a harsh environment.

Click on their website and see what type of gear you will need to get when you are planning a camping trip. The best place that you can find these specially made EDC items is this website. The main difference in getting gear like this will be your mind set. Now, normal people will only think about either comfort, or style. Most people will not think about the safety aspect of their backpacks or clothes, when they are spending money purchasing them.

If you are someone that likes the military, these gears will not only look cool to wear, they will also give you a feel of what it is like to wear them if you are not enlisted. The best thing about them is the fact, that if you are planning to join up, wearing and getting used to gear like this will give you an advantage when you are in the core. Most people that have never worn items like this will not have a clue how to use them correctly when the time comes. So, if your child is going to the service, it would be a nice idea to give them all the advantage they can get before they are shipped off.
