More of the job

Hello all.
So I know I ranted about the job at Simmons, but I have to tell you its not really that bad. While it does drive me a little nutty sometimes and I really never thought I would want to be an academic librarian, it turns out it doesn't matter. As long as I get to work in a library, and help people apparently I do not care what kind of librarian I am. Now this is not to say I want to do this for the rest of my life, I am not going to lie I would love to flit and float around to the different areas of the field.
Starting tomorrow I am working at the Pyramid Companies here in Syracuse. Although if you ask some of my Syracusan friends, they will tell you they are an evil corporation. I don't think they are evil. Building a huge mall in the middle of CNY is not always the best idea, however it is supposed to be a green mall. Most of the things about the mall do seem to be energy efficient.
I was never offered the position at the public library. I guess they needed someone more than 10 hours a week. Honestly I do not blame them. I was not the most worthy candidate for working for them and honestly driving out to that part of town 1-5 days a week was not something I was looking forward too. However I was looking forward to working with some of my fellow classmates from the iSchool.
I am actually sitting in a different part of Orange University writing this blog because my class got out about an hour early. Sometimes I like my class getting out early. Today is not one of those days. I really do like talking about internet security and anonymity of the internet. However I have a very hard time actually sitting through an entire three hour class. I need a break somewhere in there. It also doesn't help with having no coffee flowing through my bloodstream. This I blame on the fact I can no longer sleep properly. And while I have been eating right and exercising more it is still not working.
Maybe I should cut down on the coffee again. I am only drinking like three cups in the morning. That is not that much right? I hope all of you can hear the sarcasm in this post.
On another note, I somehow managed to put an embarrassing yesterday. I made a facebook video to about four of my closest friends. This is so i could show off my cut new haircut. I am talking completely like a valley girl and a total ditz in general. However instead of sending it just as a message, it put it on all of facebook...Totally embarrassing. Took it off as soon as I could which meant it was on facebook for about three hours. GRRR. Gotta love that a close friend of mine told me it was on there. He has known me for about six months and saw a whole new side of me. Thankfully he still wants to be friends with me. I think this is all for now. I just needed to rant.
Oh on one plus side, I went and filled for transcripts from Orange University today and not only will they go out tomorrow, they will go out for FREEE! Gotta love that. 25 bucks from Christian College.


  1. Would have loved to see that video! And I like your haircut from what I can see of it in your pictures.

  2. You weren't too Valley girl, sweetie. I didn't think the video was embarrassing at all, but I haven't seen you with your friends out there yet... that's still 13 weeks away! Doesn't sound as long as 3 months out, does it? <=) And you'll be just days away from graduation by then! Woot! =)
