Yay! First week of winter break nearly done. Only three days of work this week, so that’s done now, too. 🙂 Got nearly perfect grade on final project in Digital Libraries, so that’s an A for the class. Still waiting on Intro to Digi Preservation final grades. Have just applied for another job as I was about to write this post (and went looking for the aforementioned grades).

Christmas shopping for my nephew and nieces completed today. After one heck of a day. It certainly is the holiday shopping season!  Fortunately, this mean traffic getting home, once I get out of the mall area, was not that bad. ::knock, knock:: Getting to work this morning was another story, as a car fire shut down 270N a couple miles from where I got on today. It took me 15 minutes to go one of those miles to get back off, and 45 more minutes to get to work.

Looking forward to getting some personal web, writing, and reading projects done over break. And a lot of sleeping. 😉

Hope everyone is enjoying this cold, but largely snowless start to winter.

Quite the week of weather, thanks Ohio. 😉

Had a busy weekend of a final and a midterm and editing a book, but it all went fairly well. Still waiting on grades, but I seemed to go well. The book is edging closer and closer to publication. We’re all very excited about it.

Been mostly lazing about this week. Hanging out with friends and the usual. Made fun new characters on Tuesday, can hardly wait to see how they go next week. Back to Undermountain with a new group.

This weekend is pubs and friends – a birthday party on Saturday, and some possible stitchery. Then on to starting the second half of my Organization class.

And a Happy Birthday to Mom on Wednesday. 🙂  (Edited)

So, classes are done, grades are coming in. All is going well, so far. Some new scholarships have opened up, and I’ll be applying to at least one of them if I can figure out where the application link is. But for now, it’s my vacation.

I watched all of Season 8 of Bones via Netflix. And now I’m mad, if you have seen and remember the season ender, you’ll know why, if not – well, let’s just say that the big bad has been running strong for two seasons and he’s still on the loose. 😦 I have yet to get to the library for Dr Who, but I’ll be doing that soon.

I did, however, spend ridiculous amounts of time on Ancestry.com because my attempt to make a database of my family tree got stalled by missing dates and the website offered me 7 days free. I spent a good deal of Wednesday wading through European royalty of the Middle Ages because it turns out my Dad’s paternal grandmother’s family goes back through Charlemagne et al, not to mention a couple saints and at least one king or queen from almost every European country, if not several. The rest of the lines stall out way before then, but I’m most frustrated by the Paige line faltering so quickly. Not sure if it has to do with the name change, or just poor record keeping, must investigate more and try a few searches. I haven’t even begun on Mom’s side because I had so much more information to start with there already. Weee fun! 🙂

Christmas parties start this weekend. The crowds started last weekend. Snow and cold is making driving absolutely crazy. Less than two weeks to go, are you ready?
