Masters in library science! That is awesome. Good luck.
Yoj – Thank you.
@RowdyRodimusI'm with you! Can't stand the heat and as for humidity, urgh, NO. Why is it considered socially acceptable for people to strip off their shirts and sunbathe on public streets? The colder months are far more dignified.
@SusanYour summer is my favourite. Three-year-old children are the best thing in the world (I'm obviously speaking as someone who's never had to parent one), their unique personalities emerge in full force and they haven't yet become self-conscious. My parents say that I changed virtually overnight when I started school. I went from a bossy, chatty little thing to a shy bookworm. May you and your "little guy" have many more adventures together!
@LexaThat's wonderful news, Lexa! I'm so happy for you.
Oh, and Yoj, could you shoot me a message some time? I'm just about to start a Master's program in library science, also in archives, and what you're doing sounds like the kind of thing I'd be interested in. (And yes, Margaret Beaufort was a pistol back in the day, although I hear there's an Anne Neville biography out there I should read at some point, leaning more to the Richard III side of things myself…)
When my cat Romeo came home after being AWOL for a month–we knew he was in the area, and he showed up at the door that evening; he ran away at first, but after I propped the screen door open he poked his nose in the kitchen and then must have smelled something familiar, because he made a beeline under my bed! He's passed out snoozing on my bed right now, the little stinker…but I love him.
Nooooo fucking way!!! Put some X on for me. Josh used to keep them well stocked 😉
Walking around glaciers. It's coooooool! Sad that it's almost over.
That's lovely Anjelicka!
*Helene : sorry!
I'm at cherrybomb now, lady H.
Best wishes to you, Lexa!!!!! Keep the spirits high!
I'm also glad my post wasn't tl; dr for ya sandy.
We've been friends over a decade. I kinda feel like we're made for each other at this point. Thanks for the support, cdaners. 🙂
Nothing. This summer sucked ass.
Girls trip to Memphis Tennessee. We had a blast!
Cool Susan! I went for 4 days with my MIL, her friend and my 2 SIL's. No men or kiddos. It was a grand time!
Garden fresh tomatoes.
Lexa, people tend to feel so much better physically, mentally (goodbye "chemo brain"!) And emotionally. Good luck with uour recovery 🙂
That's tough Brenda. Glad you made it through and thank harvey for fur babies. X
Thank you everyone! <3 <3 <3
Cancer-free and hair is comin' back.
Sophie Helen: you must feel so satisfied, proud and brimming with a sense of achievement. Congrats!
Congrats on your new job ItsCourtney🙂
That's massive news Lexa. Take care of yourself. Xx
Annnnnnnna : that's the BEST thing to have happen. Also a great time to fall in love. You get to go out and do more, then, come winter, you know each other well enough to spend most of your time, inside and alone together. Congrats! <3
*Pondering if Count is going to make this date an annual holiday?*
That's lovely, PugsterMom. Did you bring your furbabies with you for the vacay?
@ Lexa, congrats to you and a long healthy life ahead.
@ Anna, love is grand. Congratulations!
@ Courtney, congrats on the new job.
@ Sophie, yeah for school. Congrats!
@Pug, Reno & Anjelicka – Nothing beats family & friends!!
Beach house rental with my family.
I can't believe summer is over. Kids are back in school and Pop Warner football started last Saturday.
Sending best wishes to you Lexa.
@Sherry Thanks, Sherry
Sorry, I forgot to answer your question! That's me, getting carried with sentiment. Yes, my MA was Library & Information Studies. I'm also in a MA Conservation programme now (one and a half days a week, specialising in Books and Archival Materials), with two years left to go.
@Sophie HeleneDoesn't matter, all that's past now. You've paid your dues. Twenty-one-year-old graduates rarely know what they want to do for a career and not everyone gets that "lightbulb" moment, at any age.Good luck, Sophie!
+1 billion Lexa. Hope you are well.
Yoj, one should never look down on a good nights sleep. absolutely crucial for brain function.
Sharknado 2. Yeah, I don't have a life.
I am happy you pulled through, but I do not have your merit. I did not go back because I just had no real direction, I was just lost… I really stumbled onto that program and a light went on. Now I can't wait!!! PLus I was admitted in second year so it means I have only a year to go before I graduate.
Is that how you became a librarian (did you not mention that at some point?)
Meeting my niece from ND and spending time in NC with family.
This is a truly pathetic highlight in comparison with the rest of you, but this summer I've had several full night sleeps, for the first time in many years.
@Sophie Helene I think I understand exactly, Sophie. It took me seven years to start my Master's, but in my case the delay was due to illness. Fighting for it meant that I appreciated it so much more. Enjoy yourself now, you've earned it.
Long walks with my dog and the fact that I have gotten through another season without someone I love that is very very bad for me.
Having my son surprise me with a visit with his girlfriend. Then my daughter came to visit as well. They live across the state from me and to have them with me for a week filled my heart with joy
Congrats to both of you!
Wishing you the BEST!
