What are the books in libraries and bookstores doing when you turn out the lights? Why, this, of course!

In other book-related news, I started my first class for my Masters of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University! I'll actually be taking three this semester, but the first is just a one credit course called Online Social Networking that you can start before the official start of the semester. I've actually started another blog as part of that class, Adventures in Library Science, in which I hope to record different thoughts related to my coursework and libraries as a whole. Of course, given my track record with blogs, we'll see if this one actually lasts!

My allergies have been so bad the last couple of days that every time I step out side, my nose starts to tickle and my face feels like it's puffing up.  Inside isn't a whole lot better, as I still sneeze and constantly have to blow my nose. I can't wait until this season is over!

Next Year

Well, I'm all registered for next semester's classes now!  Things can still change, but for now, I'm pretty content with what I've got. I'm taking the following 7 classes*:
  • Computers in Society
  • Introduction to Computer Systems
  • BIC Capstone: The Once and Future King: David, Jesus, and King Arthur
  • World Cultures V: Islamic Culture in the Middle East**
  • The Early Republic, 1789-1860 (American History)**
  • Introduction to Language and Linguistics
  • Ballet I
The BIC*** capstone classes are usually only offered in the spring, but for some reason, they're offering one section of it in the fall. As the topic is the one I've been wanting to take, I went ahead and signed up for it. However, with that out of the way, I only needed one hour of computer science and I'd be done with all my major and minor requirements after next semester.  And then I got to thinking, Why don't I study abroad in the spring?  Originally, I'd been opposed to studying abroad my final semester, but the idea suddenly started to get attractive.  My mom was very supportive of the idea, and so I started to look at the various programs that my school approves.

So, I'm almost done with all my major and minor requirements. This means that I have a lot of leeway in deciding which classes to take next semester. I'm for sure taking "Intro to Computer Systems", and will probably take "Intro to Language and Linguistics" and "Ballet I" for fun. I also need to take a World Cultures class and an American History class, but I don't know which ones! I'm leaning towards "Islamic Culture" and "Civil War/Reconstruction", but I'm still deciding. Plus, I have space for one more elective. Unless it's a history, math, or computer science class, it'll have to be some intro class, but I don't know whether to take anthropology, sociology, Greek, accounting, or... So, here's a poll, so you can help me decide!

...but only for the next couple of days. 

Even though I'm at an American school, we don't get a Thanksgiving break here, which SUCKS.  I keep seeing Facebook status updates from people from my university back home, who will be going home for the weekend soon, while I have school on Thanksgiving day. Also, this'll be the first Thanksgiving that I don't spend with my family. My friends and I may do something for the holiday, but we haven't made plans yet, so I don't know if anything's going to happen.


On the bright side, I'm going to Edinburgh this weekend. It'll be freezing, but I'm still really excited!  And I can let myself listen to Christmas music soon!

Well, it’s been almost two months since my last real update. But then, I’ve never claimed to be good at updating on a regular basis. Busyness combined with laziness just get in the way. So, here’s the first part of a rather condensed version of what I’ve been doing lately. I actually typed it up before I went to Rome this past weekend (which was amazing!), but I didn’t have a chance to put it up. Hopefully, the next couple of parts of the update will go up within the next week or so!

Well, it’s been two weeks since I last updated, and I don’t really have an excuse! Things were still crazy the first week of classes, but in the last week, things have finally begun to settle into a routine. It’s still a pretty crazy, fun-filled routine, but a routine all the same.

I told you it was long... )
