So looking forward to the weekend. I’ve not been sleeping well this week, much sleep will be had come Saturday. πŸ™‚

I am officially registered for my fall Internship Culminating Experience. So, that’s happy and awesome. Classes have calmed down, so that’s good. Just need to finish up a few references and turn in the Case Study, and this week will be done.

New manager is working to get us streamlined and in shape. So far it’s going alright. I got two memberships this week, so far, so that’s major good for me. We’re making Vinyl an even bigger thing, come July, so that should be interesting. Also a TON of pop culture events in July: Dr Who, Minions, Marvel and DC, even a Manga day… and stuff for smaller kids, too like Magic Tree House. Okay, so Minions is a kid event, but I know lots of adults (self included) who love them. So, looks to be a fun month coming up.

I’m definitely taking a break, come August. πŸ˜‰

All the rain lately. At least it’s fairly warm. Warm rain is nice to play in. If not drive in.

Internships mostly set for the fall. Just a few details left to sort with CML. Scheduling manager notified – but I haven’t written the official letter, yet. Going to be working on improving the Otterbein Institutional Repository. So, that should be a really good project. Β Really need to get the rest of the paperwork to my advisor tomorrow.

Not as far into homework as I planned to be at this point, this week. But I’ve Friday afternoon and all day Saturday to finish it up. Life and exhaustion happened.

A friend passed this week. Prayers and thoughts with his family and everyone who knew him.

Why Yes, I’m a Bit Crazy… and Super Lucky June 11, 2015

Started my summer classes this week. So far.. so Busy! First week of class is always a little hectic because I have to wait until Monday to get started, instead of my usual one class Sunday, one class Monday routine. And they are abbreviated summer classes, so it’s even more messy. And naturally, things were missing. But it is all sorted out now, and I just have two more things to do to finish up the week.

I added to the hustle by emailing a listserv about internship possibilities last week, and I got a Lot of replies. I also got a reply from a direct request I’d sent out a couple weeks prior. So, I had a lot of replies to write, and decisions to make. Now, the crazy. I decided to accept two of the offers. One for my Culminating Experience, and one for just my experience. I am super Lucky because my parents, who have been awesome at helping me out with Grad School, are helping me out again this fall so that I can afford to do two unpaid internships at once. So, I am very much looking forward to interning at both Otterbein University and Columbus Metropolitan Libraries this fall.

The rest of my schedule has settled down for the summer. I’ve got a picnic with friends this weekend, but no more big special events planned, except a birthday trip to Cedar Point. So, mostly just a summer of schoolwork, webdesign, and Python programming. Sounds good to me. πŸ™‚

Also, WordPress informs me that six years ago today was when I started this blog. Happy Birthday Blog. πŸ™‚

June already? Where did the year go? Well, I guess we keep moving forward.

Classes start next week, though, just for fun, I started taking a free beginners Python class this week – seems slowly paced enough to add on top of my other classes, and it’s a language I’ve not worked with before. So, it should be fun.

New manager at work – really seems to know her stuff, and is friendly and personable. Things are looking up. I’m still working on getting out, but right now that energy is focused on my fall internship – still looking. I tossed an email out to a digitization listserv today, see if I get any good leads there.

This month will be relatively quiet. Going to have a relaxing weekend starting after work tomorrow, then a picnic next weekend, and just the usual work-homework-hang out with friends the rest of the month.
