Summer Cold August 28, 2014

So, I’ve caught a summer cold. I blame Allie and Shane. 😉 It’s kinda miserable, but at least I have a puppy to cuddle.

New classes started this week. Digital Libraries and Intro to Digital Preservation. Should be a fun semester, if very full of homework. One involves a group project, the other is individual work with group discussions(as per usual). One is light on reading, the other seems pretty heavy. So, should be an interesting semester.

More people leaving the store, heading into Holiday hiring soon. We’ve got a bunch of full time positions open. Wee, fun!  Still waiting to hear back on some recent applications. Fingers crossed.

This is my week off between my summer class and fall semester. I have been exhausted all week. Naps after work the last two days. So exciting, I know. 😉

Had a great weekend with my family. Nieces’ birthday on Saturday was fun. Lots of running around, eating, and playing. So much energy they and my nephew have! Their puppy doesn’t like balloons, though. Poor puppy, the house was full of them. Saw Guardians of the Galaxy with my parents on Sunday. It was fun, and silly, and touching. I liked it. 🙂  Some shopping with Mom on Monday. Seriously fashion people, why the heck have you decided girls don’t need pockets??? Pant-fail.

End of the summer parties this weekend. Well, technically, one of the parties Saturday is a birthday, but still. Much fun and merriment to be had with parties and picnics before I start back to the grad-school grind. 🙂

And then! Puppy and Kitty for two weeks! 🙂

Well, it will be shortly, when I post my final response to someone’s paper, anyway. 🙂 Shortened classes for summer session are really rough. But I have a week off to recover before the Fall semester starts. I think both my classes are starting together this time, too. Should be fun!

Family birthday party this weekend for the girls. Happy Birthday nieces!!! And my folks are coming down to visit as well. Maybe I’ll get them to take me to see Guardians of the Galaxy. 😉 I keep hearing such awesome reviews of it.

The store is the store, still looking for a lot of lead positions if anyone wants to come work with me. (Head Cashier, Childrens, Digital, etc.)  Well, for as long as I’m there anyway. Applied to six more library positions this week. Starting to stress over Next fall’s unpaid internship, reminding myself that’s Next fall and it doesn’t matter right now.

All in all, things are good. New meds seem to be working, now if I can just eat better… I bought green things today. I’m working on it. 🙂

Just about done with my summer class. A lit review, a post, and two replies left. Wohoo!  Looking forward to my digital classes this fall. All is going well. Now, if I can just get a library job… 😉

Store’s doing alright. The TMNT event is starting in a half hour. This weekend is Game of Thrones and Dr Who/Hobbit days. Should be entertaining.

Going to a women’s event on Saturday to relax and have fun after work.

Not a whole lot exciting right now. Really want to see Guardians of the Galaxy.  Working my way through The First Confessor, and bought Severed Souls this week. Ah, Goodkind… Really should go back and read the first three…. someday… when I have time…
