Summertime

Posted on

I have avoided the Florida summer by returning home to Washington for a while. I definitely appreciate he cooler weather, especially when I hear people in florida complaining about the heat. However as I sit here waiting for my parents to be ready to leave, one thing I am not fond of in Washington comes to mind. The traffic. We shall see how it compares once I have experienced having a car in both places.

Just over a month + 1 week

After a little bit more than a month of library school, I feel qualified to say… this hasn’t been as hard as I expected. After being absent from all forms of schooling for around 5 months, before starting my master’s program, I was thinking that it might be hard to get used to school again. That hasn’t really been the case. The assignments are fun and seem relevant to my future, and the professors seem to care about helping you. (Who am I to say that they DO or DO NOT, I only know about the way I perceive them.)

Adjusting to Florida is still kind of a challenge. I feel like this is a long vacation with class two days a week instead of like this is a place I will be living for quite some time. Maybe that’s why I have trouble getting motivated to do my reading/assignments. Need to get on that. The majority of my smaller assignments each week are due on Sundays by midnight and that is frustrating. I just want to enjoy my weekend. This has caused me to try to get these done earlier in the week, to give myself a chance to relax on the weekend and do most of my work during the week like a normal student.

Good luck in your studies!

School has begun!

I had my first class yesterday and I must say I have never been more confident that this is what I want to do! Library science all the way.

My professor was enthusiastic, charming and amusing; the students had varied, diverse backgrounds and experiences and are all in different stages of the program, having a lot to offer as individuals. Second class starts in about 20 minutes and I am just hoping it is as great as yesterday’s. Got some readings to do and such, but with only 2 classes a week I think I will be fine. Keep you updated!

Everything is working out fine!

At least in my mind. Let’s all clap for positivity.

I’m in the last two weeks of my undergraduate program, graduating in the middle-ish of August, and can’t really believe this is all happening. As some of you may know I’m going to move back home after graduation and between graduating and going to grad school. (Too many “grad”s in that sentence.)

Moving is horrible. It just makes me aware of how much stuff I’ve had to buy for living outside of the house and it makes me want to keep it for when I live out of the house in the future. (If I go out of state, though, that’s completely impractical.) I plan on moving a bunch of stuff home next time I go, in order to make the final moving easier, although moving is always stressful.

Onto the good stuff! I’m doing well in my classes. The cooking blog is very fun and I have had a good experience with it so far. I’m also finally succeeding in my newswriting class, proving to myself that English classes have not ruined my ability to be concise and not flowery. I’m finally getting my applications in to grad schools, minus the extra materials that need to be mailed such as transcripts and letters of recommendation (which are in the works now! Getting in touch with people was difficult but I think it’s finally happening.) 🙂

Transcripts are $10 each which I think is way more than they should cost. It’s just PRINTING and SEALING and MAILING. It should be more like $5.  =/

However, my opinions don’t matter and schools are always money-hungry. Who knew applying to grad school was so expensive? *sigh*
