Birthday, end of library school, changes afoot

Yesterday was my birthday. I'm 33, an appealingly palindromic number (I've always liked multiples of eleven). I didn't get to do anything yesterday evening, because I had a class to go to; thanks to the quarter system, my birthday always falls right around the crazy pre-finals weeks. (The University of Chicago is on the quarter system too, so pretty much all of my college-years birthdays fell into the same pattern. Instead of drunken carousing on my 21st, I had exam cramming with a short cake break. Though I'm sure my liver thanked me for it.)

But I didn't care, because this weekend is absolutely the last I'll ever spend working on MSLIS-related projects; everything is due by the end of next week, and as of the 14th, I'll officially be a librarian. And these past couple of weeks have been marked by all kinds of good news. It's not all bloggable yet (watch this space for further announcements), but suffice it to say that 33 is looking like it'll be a good year. I'm in such a good mood that I don't even care about the looming term paper or the group oral presentation next week. Somehow or other, it'll all get done.

And then, when the end-of-term madness is over, I'll finally have time to blog regularly again. In the meantime, I'm going to see the Wilma Theater's production of Eurydice with a friend this evening. Catch you all again before long!

    Happy Birthday, Amanda! I wish you the best of luck on finals and yet another impending graduation! Woot! Do librarians receive floppy hats and robes, too? I’m in the midst of moving, but let’s catch up over email when the air clears in a few weeks, OK? Big hugs!
