Well, the first week of the semester is over and I feel pretty good! My classes are so far as interesting as they seemed when I signed up for them and I think I’m going to learn a lot of cool things this semester. I’m trying to get a head start on my reading and projects and avoid some of the all-nighters and stress I put myself through last spring. Here’s to not procrastinating!
If you’re interested in some of what I’m working on this semester, here’s the blog I’m writing for my Young Adult Materials class:
Work is also going well – I feel like I’m settling in and definitely learning a ton about the day-to-day operations of a public library. It’s so much fun to work with the materials – I love getting to choose which books to display. I’m also having a great time getting to know our patrons and helping them find awesome books to read. It’s especially great to see our child patrons get so excited about reading and discovering new favorite books. I’m really thankful for what I learned in my Materials for Tweens and Award Winning Books for Children classes last fall – that information has been so helpful in making recommendations for our readers!
In non-library news, I finally got a car!!! I could go on and on, but I’ll be brief: it’s awesome and I love being able to drive myself places. I never thought that I’d be someone who got super-excited about a car, but what can I say, it was love at first sight. I decided she needed a great name, so I named her Jane, in honor of Jane Austen.
After this great week, I’m going into the weekend feeling very thankful. Have a good one and thanks for reading!
