Covid-19 is all over the world, the news, the internet. What does it mean for me? Right as of this moment, it means our students are getting a two week spring break instead of just one. It means that, when classes do start back up on the 23rd, they will be mostly, if not entirely, online. It also means, we at the library are looking at all the ways we support distance learning and are kicking it up a notch. It’s a complicated time for our community college.

Personally, I’m just going about my normal introverted business. Finally picked up my comics from the store, and did my house cleaning on the weekend. Didn’t cook anything huge, just some banana-almond butter breakfast bars. I painted the miniature for my weekly DnD game and finished Yasha. I’m trying some things out and still need to get a miniscule brush for facial details. But I think she came out alright.

I finished listening to Harry Potter, book one. Now, I’m nearly done with a dramatization of Carmilla by La Fanu. Next up is The Library of the Unwritten by Hackwith. Next week The Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount comes out, so I’ll have a lot of physical reading to dive into!

Everyone be safe and take care of yourselves!

Sorry, folks. I went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at the dollar theater on Thursday night, and then forgot to post last night, instead. Thanks for the reminder, Mom! Fantastic Beasts was, in fact, Fantastic. I really enjoyed the movie, and all the fun beasts, and characters.

On the health side, I’ve lowered my prednisone intake, and now my jaw is starting to be a bit wonky again. I need to call the doc on Monday about the specialist she wanted me to see… and get my blood draw done. ::procrastination::

This week at the library was fairly good. Less excitement than last week. And I’m learning all the little ins and outs of my branch. I’ve also been handed an archival project! Since we’re getting a new branch, the manager has dug up all the papers and photos of the history of the branch. They are not in very good shape and really need preserved and cataloged. So, we’re going to get Aaron over to help set up a plan, that I then get to implement, to take care of all the things. I’m very excited about this opportunity.

On the book front. I finished Triplanetary, and listened to Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime. The latter was very, very good. I learned more about South Africa and apartheid than I ever did in school. Then, I went back to Robin Hobb, and after a chapter of a book way down in the sets of series, I finally found the book I was looking for, and have started Royal Assassin.
