Looking to Summer

The cats and I fell through the looking-glass and have found ourselves in summer break!

Updates may be sporadic, chaotic, and off topic (but that's hardly unusual here).

Hopefully I'll be seeing you again (figuratively speaking) soon.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die;
Ever drifting down the stream--
Lingering in the golden gleam--
Life, what is it but a dream?

Saftey Advice

Workplace safety training for librarians:
"Be aware of distractions. For instance, running or walking while reading can make accidents more likely. Whether you are walking across campus or around your office, always be aware of your surroundings."
Only librarians would need to be lectured on the dangers of walking while reading.

In other news, I'm trying to decide what to do with this blog over the summer... I think I'm going to be pretty busy with work, so I'm debating a summer hiatus. Or perhaps just infrequent book reviews as I make my way through a long list of summer reading. I don't want to abandon this space, but I'd also rather save it for worthwhile posts instead of feeling an imposed need to create content just for the sake of a daily update. More thoughts on this later.

Turning in that last paper is such a good feeling!

Now it's time to sleep!

One project left and I'm finished with my first year of grad school! I am so excited!
(And so sleep deprived...)

I am already starting to accumulate a list of books I want to read over the summer--I need to make it my goal to add some more non-fiction titles to the list--and in some cases the books themselves are starting to creep into my apartment. They've been a pleasant sign of what I have to look forward to as soon as I get this last little bit done. Admittedly in some cases I haven't quite been able to resist reading just a taste... or a little more than that. Right now, however, I'm inclined to think I will take a couple days to just sleep before diving into that glorious pile of summer reading.

Last one for now, I promise! Thanks PhD Comics for entertaining me through another all-nighter. You'd think by grad school I would have figured out this is always a bad idea.

Any minute?

Another gem from PhD Comics:

It's probably a bad sign that there seem to be so many parallels between my life and this comic...

Presidential Words

"Higher education is the single most important investment you can make for your future."

It's also "one of the best investments American can make for our future."

"We have to make college more affordable... This shouldn't be a partisan issue."

President Obama, 04/24/12 UNC Chapel Hill
