Friday Fun! (Grad School Returns)

February 5, 2010 4 comments

Grad school is fully back in swing.  While I still wish I could miraculously have the copious amount of time I had over winter break when I was just working full-time, instead of working full-time and attending grad school part-time, I don’t totally hate my classes this semester. Yet.

One of my classes is on being an academic librarian in science and technology.  The professor is an adjunct, which means he works in the field and knows what he’s talking about.  Miraculously, I have yet to loathe any of my fellow students in that class.  In fact, I even like some of them.  A couple of them were in my medical librarianship class last spring, and I enjoy hanging out with them while they smoke on our break.  They don’t have this false sense of being superheroes a lot of students in the program do.  They just want a good, stable career, like me.

My other class is an online one on academic libraries.  I’ve found I learn more in online classes, not sure why.  I pretty much can’t stand any of my fellow students in it, but that’s ok.  It’s easy to just roll your eyes at the statements made when you’re not trapped in a classroom with them.  I like the professor though, and the assignments seem like I’ll actually learn something from them.

I’ve reached the climax in the novella that I’m writing.  I’m excited to get to edit it and send it off to a friend for critique.  I seem to actually be following through on my, totally not officially made but thought about a lot, resolution to write my novellas/books more.  I really feel like the time I’m spending working on improving my writing is well spent, which is a pretty darn good feel good pill.  Maybe someday you guys will get to review my books! Lol.

Happy weekend!
