The end of something...


So the end of my first Fall semester at Post has finally come and gone. What are some impressions that I've taken from it? Well, it was really busy and some of the veteran librarians thought so as well. I really didn't know what to expect when it came to how many classes I would teach but with teaching the Library Competency Workshop and the normal BI classes, it ended up being a lot of teaching once the semester kicked into gear. I also think a part of the rushed feeling was from the post-strike hangover.

The students are generally cool. I had a really good group for the workshop class I taught. Some of the walk up students at the reference desk can be a little out there from not really knowing what they are looking for but, hey, that's what we are for, right? To show them how to find what they need. My co-workers are great and really helpful, and I am not just saying this because they may find this post at some point. To make a short story long, we work in cubicles which means that everyone is up in each others business. The upside is that you are not secluded and cut off from your co-workers (and I am sure you can imagine what the downsides are) so you can get a lot of feedback and get into conversations that can spawn ideas and creativity.

Good stuff here so far but I haven't had to deal with the powers that be too much and the publishing aspect hasn't kicked in to full gear so my thoughts after the end of the next year might be drastically different.

Will this get me into trouble?


Today, it seems like the first time in a really long time, I am in an uber writing mode. I need to get some stuff out, on the page (screen), out of that cavernous black hole that is my ginormous cranium. What to get out? Well that is up to debate, I just need to write...something.

So, I start thinking of some topics to write about, some stuff at work like the committee meeting yesterday or the union meeting I attended. Then some paranoia started to set in. What if someone actually reads this blog? I mean, it is possible that someone could stumble upon this little corner of the interwebs and read what I have to say. Would that be like finding a needle in a haystack or a deposed ex-leader in a drain pipe? Could happen. And what if it was someone with someone who would take my idiotic ramblings to heart and may even be someone from work like that committee meeting or that union or even worse, administration. Dun-Dun-Dun! Or done-done-done, which is what I would be if the right people took the wrong thing away from this veritable cornucopia of bloggy goodess.

So should I worry? Will anyone read this? Is anyone out there? Will the 24 film ever get made?

Nah. Go about your business you wacky bibliophile. Oh, and make quick with those book reviews.

Right-O, getting on that now.

I Will Post More, I Will Not Fall Behind!


I Promise, I promise.

I have about four entries that are in the works and they've been in the works for a while. I would finish them now but the battery on the MacBook is at 9%. I'll keep up to date, I will I will.

Ok, enough of that. Back to the writing....or the charging of the MacBook.

More to come from the LL!!!

(I like referring to myself as the LL, makes feel like The Rock.)
