Schedule set for events for the next three months. It’s going to be a fun, busy ride. And I get to pet-sit three weekends, go camping, go to Cleveland three times, Detroit once, and have a great time here in Columbus. I might even make it to the Ren Faire for closing weekend. 🙂 So much to do, so much fun to have. And so much schoolwork to fit in.

The group project is steaming along. I did a major edit to one of the pages today. And we’re getting closer to having a cover page for web 2.0 done. If I get done with all the writing I need to do today, I’ll put up some more of the graphics that were donated to the project. My first paper is the biggest bit of homework left for the week: a “paper that discusses the information agency’s role in a future where technology will drive knowledge and information.”  I admit, I had to Google ‘information agency’ to figure out he was talking about libraries, museums, archives and galleries. But that should be a fun paper to write as the focus of both my classes has mostly been on that topic. My interest is starting to wander towards information systems a bit more than preservation – I mean, I like preservation of Things, but access seems like a more intriguing problem to work on. We’ll see how things go.

I did not get the library job that I interviewed for a couple weeks ago. But right now I’m so busy, I’ve only managed to apply to one other library job, and that because it came across the list-serv for school. But there’s a Career Fair thing at the Columbus campus October 3rd that I’ve registered to go to. So, maybe that will help. Scholarships have finally opened up for application. Those are due mid-October, so another thing for me to get in gear and work on.  Work at the store continues apace, headlong for the holidays. Weeee!

So, apparently cabins in the Hocking Hills must be rented for two nights at a time on summer weekends. There goes that anniversary idea. We’ll have to take a look at what’s available more locally in the way of a cheap but fun getaway. Too bad about the heat, or we could hit the Ren Faire. We’re saving that for cooler days, though.

Looking forward to seeing all the family on Saturday. Birthday cake, ice cream, children playing and maybe even a round or two of Munchkin. 😉 Have to buy presents at work tomorrow. Yay, last minute shopping.

Hurt my back last week, went to the chiropractor. My spine is apparently lovely, but my hips are crooked. Knew that, we’re working on fixing it. Back finally feels better today.

Getting bored of food again. Wanting more variety. Craving cheese(pizza, mac & cheese, Parmesan covered pasta) a lot lately, too. Joints about the same as always. Not terrible, but not ideal.

The school jobs are a total no-go. I am once again pondering data entry. I’ve only ever done bits of it at my jobs, but I wonder about doing it full time(or ya know, part time, I like flexible schedules). It just doesn’t seem like it’d be fulfilling, unless it was at a really good place. Inertia tends to win. Especially when I have ‘decent’ hours at work and only tiny bits of non-retail experience.

Lots of rambling today, I think I’m done now. See you next week.
