Hopefully someday this blog will be updated more than four times annually. The last entry was from the beginning of the semester -- a semester that left me pretty worn out. Every semester begins with a promise to myself that I won't stress over things too much, that lasts about three weeks and it's back to full on get-things-done stress mode. I only had three classes, but the preservation, conservation, and archives class really threw me for a loop; writing papers about chemical processes is really tough without a chemistry background, it turns out. Even my classes on reference sources and services were interesting... it turns out there's plenty to know about both!

Recently I started in a new position at a new library, this time up front working in circulation and helping with basic reference stuff. So it turns out that those classes are somewhat useful, too (although they don't help much when trying to teach basic computer skills to patrons on the other side of the digital divide). It's definitely been an interesting experience, and maybe someday I'll become one of those bitchy librarian bloggers who hate you the internet seems to have exploded with.

Probably not though.

Anyway, now that I have some free time again, here's a drawing of what I wore today!

Mostly everything is from Target. After a big allergy attack this morning (sad to say that breathing is, in fact, important to me), comfort was a necessity! Currently reading Joan Aiken's The Serial Garden: The Complete Armitage Family Stories, which is delightful so far.
