Had a good visit with my parents. Mom and I went to see Minions and Jurrasic World on Sunday. They were both a lot of fun. Dad told me stories and we reminisced about old TV shows. We had our usual Red Lobster family dinner, and even watched some Golf together. Mom also insisted on the Shopping. So we got groceries and had an unexpectedly successful trip to Kohl’s, landing me three new pair of work pants for my internships.

I had a great talk with my Columbus Metropolitan Library supervisor on Monday. A lot of really fun projects coming up that I can help with. (Note: my definition of fun is Certainly different than yours… unless you are also a (digital) Librarian.) So, even more excited for September to get here.

Today, I also signed up for a local Fall CSA (New Century) that will deliver me fresh vegetables every other week for two months starting at the end of September. If it goes well, I will definitely be signing up in the spring for Summer and Fall next year. I’m really bad at getting to the store for fresh fruits and veggies. Though, as it is supposed to be for a small family, I may need help eating it all… or preserving it for winter. πŸ™‚

Two weeks, and 8 work days left at B&N.

Pop Culture and Vinyl July 16, 2015

Most of my time at work this week was full of our Vinyl rollout. We now have three bays of vinyl in our music department, instead of just one little table. I hope it keeps selling… Β The rest of the store is consumed by the Pop Culture events this month. Tomorrow night is Minions, Saturday is Star Wars, and Sunday is Manga Mania, which kicks off a week-long Buy Two, Get One Free sale. Head to your local B&N folks, it’s going to be a fun weekend. πŸ™‚

For me? The weekend will be full of final project homework. My birthday is next weekend, and I’d like to be doing as little homework as possible after going to Cedar Point with friends next Friday. So, I have to add content to all my new webpages, and submit a progress report. Then I have to get my digital library of travel photos pulled together, and filled with metadata. I believe I have a progress report to do on that, as well. Oh, yeah, and I need to email the guy at CML about setting up a meeting to discuss my second internship this fall.

At least we’ve had some nice weather this week. Some pretty huge storms, too, but also some sun to dry things off. Like that tree in the road just down from me. πŸ˜‰ Summer is halfway over already, how did that happen??

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˜‰
