It seems like I have fallen off the edge of the blogging universe, but I am just bogged down with school work. There are about 4 weeks left in the semester so that means it’s crunch time for me! I am still reading but not as much as I was last semester. Lots of exciting things have happened and I would really love to tell you about them in a separate post but, alas, I am too busy. So I will just give you brief, exciting clips of information here:
- Each year the ALA student chapter picks a representative from each library school to participate in the ALA Annual Conference. I applied and got accepted, so I will be in Chicago from June 27th until July 2nd! I’ll be working a couple of hours each day with the folks at YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) and the rest of my time I will be attending conference meetings and such. I am really excited! Is anyone else going? Shoot me an email and we can coordinate a meet-up!
- I got a part-time job at a local library working in their Youth Services department. I am VERY excited about this. For the past semester I have applied to jobs non-stop and haven’t come out with much luck. Getting the call about this job was a blessing because it’s the area I want to work in!
- Another local library is opening a teen center (FINALLY!) in the main branch and I have applied for an internship there. I am not sure how this is going to work out since I applied for the internship BEFORE I applied for the job. There might be some cutting that needs to happen there
As you guys can see my summer is going to be BUSY! Of course, I am still pretty active on all my social media outlets. Some more than others, but you can get social with me here. That’s all the time I have today. It’s time to hit the (text)books again…
How is everyone else doing?
