Back to School
Classes are starting up again on Monday.
Where, exactly, did the summer go?
I feel like there is so much I haven’t done yet! I did some good things, like going to San Diego for SLA, getting in plenty of family and beach time, reading some good fiction. But I still feel like I ran out of time for things I wanted to do:
- Updating my historical fiction blog, which really deserves a life beyond last summer’s school project
- Staying in touch with all the wonderful people I met at SLA in June… I sent a few emails, but still…
- Reading The Three Musketeers. I did see a rather excellent play of it. So, can I have partial credit?
- Reading about collection development,, because I won’t get a chance to take the class at Pratt.
- Lolling in a hammock at Governor’s Island.
- Reorganizing my bookshelves. The system currently in place makes sense to me. But it wouldn’t stand up to librarian scrutiny, I fear.
On the plus side, I got my hands on advance copies of the syllabi for my two fall classes: Research Methods, and Metadata. So I’ve been clearing the cobwebs from my academic brains by trying to get ahead of the reading.
Also in the offing for the semester: I’ll be getting some hands-on internship experience. And still working at the business books company, no some new book campaigns.
I might even remember to sleep, on occasion.
I might also have just bought way too many highlighters and a pencil case. In my defense, I found a sale on school supplies.
