The SLIS Buffet

Hello again! I'm getting ready to register for classes in a few days, and I'm going to explain the way I'm feeling in true English major fashion -- via metaphor. I feel as though I am at a Chinese buffet,...

Wait...It's almost Thanksgiving?!

So it's November. Already. I'm not sure where September and October went but apparently it's the past. These first few weeks of grad school have been a whirlwind and when friends and family ask me what I've been up to...

Hump Week

I've dubbed this week "hump week" because I have major assignments due in BOTH of my classes on Saturday. They are the last assignments before our final projects, so it's the last "hump" of the semester before the final hump....

Registration Part 2!

I have an update on my last post! So my desk is completely covered in Pro/Con lists, and I have officially decided to not take LIS 438: Introduction to Archival Methods and Services next semester, therefore delaying my decision on...

Next Level Research Paper-ing

I think it would be really interesting to know exactly how many research papers I have written in my life. You would think with all my years of academic experience that I'd be getting better and better at writing papers,...

Registration!

Registration time is upon us! And...I have no idea what class to take. As of December, I will be a fourth of the way through my program, and I'll be done with my required core LIS courses. Now, I am...

America's Test Kitchen Library Site Visit

Araceli Hintermeister '16MA/MS was gracious enough to give us a tour of the America's Test Kitchen facilities. We were able to follow her through the pantry, onto the various sets, and of course, into the America's Test Kitchen library. I...

Halfway There!

Well, we've just about reached the halfway point in the semester! My fall class has certainly been keeping me busy. As I've said in previous posts, I'm taking LIS 488 (Technology for Information Professionals) this fall, and I'm taking it...

If the Shoe Fits!

This past Friday, I had the awesome experience of touring both the Reebok archives and America's Test Kitchen. Check out next week's blog for ATK! At Reebok I was given a fun looking ID badge that identified me as a...

A Whirlwind of Activity

Oh my goodness the past two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity! So many things have happened! I flew to North Carolina to be a bridesmaid in a good friend's wedding, which was very exciting. I have been to...

Starting Strong and Staying Strong

A little over a month into my first semester of grad school and, oh boy, what a whirlwind! From really nailing down my commute in from Brighton, (never thought I'd be team bus over T) to learning how to layer...

So Much Critical Thinking

I was quite at a loss over what I should write for this week's blog post, so I decided to write about something that seems to be emerging as a common thread throughout my classes and even my personal life...

Surprising Myself and Time Management

The third week of my fall class (LIS 488: Technology for Information Professionals) just started, and things are going much better than I thought they would. I've mentioned several times before how nervous I was for this class because of...

Engaging Classes and Best Laid Plans

I'm delighted to report that my new system for homework worked incredibly well last week. I methodically chugged through all my readings, got started on some future assignments, took notes on everything I read, and tracked how much time I...

A New Semester Begins!

My fall class (LIS 488: Technology for Information Professionals) started last week. As I've mentioned before, while this is an online class, it's a bit of a new adventure for me because there are a few "live sessions" incorporated in...

The Last Week of Summer

And just like that, our last golden week of summer is over. My, how golden it was. The kids and I spent our last full week before school starts enjoying some gorgeous weather and having all kinds of fun and...
