Graduation & Mountain Bikes.
Okay, so I’ve been away from my blog for a month now. If anyone is stalking me on here, my apologies. It’s not that I’ve decided that blogging isn’t for me; no, not at all. I’ve been incredibly busy. I graduate in 19 days with my MLIS, a task that has been two years in the making. Everything is wrapping up with my final two courses (Survey of Telecommunication and Digital Information Retrieval). In between my last two group assignments, I’ve managed to have two poster sessions accepted for next month: one on May 2nd at the WNY/O ACRL Spring 2008 Conference and one on May 19th at Cornell University Libraries Professional Development Week. I’m extremely excited, as these are my first poster presentations (minus the practice session we did the first semester of library school) and feel very honored to have been accepted. I hope to eventually get copies of my poster linked here on my blog so that everyone can see them. I’ve also been pretty busy with the job search (applications, interviews, life-altering decisions… yay!).
Amidst all of the above, I had the chance to be fitted for and purchase my first mountain bike (a Giant Cypher). I’ve been saving for this bike for a long time, and am really looking forward to testing it out. I picked up a nice helmet (a Giro Hex – gotta protect the brain now that all this library information is inside of it!) and a brand new hydration pack (a CamelBak L.U.X.E). My bike is on backorder because I’m so short I needed a size small, but its delivery coincides perfectly with my graduation. School will be out and I’ll have lots of time to ride! This will probably become a hybrid library-mountain-biking-blog for a bit.
It’s finally spring and seems like everyone is busy. Tell me, what are you up to?
