"Fiction is the lie that tells the truth..." -- Neil Gaiman

Got the first week's worth of assignments finished! Maybe I'll get a head start on next week's! Or I might take it a little easy this weekend. We'll see.

Anyway, one of my teachers assigned some very interesting articles for the class to read. The one I am sharing today was featured in The Guardian and taken from a lecture by British author Neil Gaiman. I found it very inspiring, not to mention encouraging for my love of fiction! 

Why our future depends on libraries, reading, and daydreaming

School is Back in Session!

My attitude towards school half of the time:

Let's hope this semester is like the second scenario... non-stop!

Here We Go Again!

It's been nearly a month since I shipped my last batch of school books back to their home, and only yesterday that the last of this upcoming semester's school books arrived. How quickly vacation flew by! In a mere two days I will be back in school. I'm actually glad for the spring semester to begin. I've finally had to admit to myself that "Yes, I like school" when I realized how excited I was to order my textbooks. (Of course, that could just be my love of books talking.)

Luckily for me, this upcoming semester should be a great deal easier than last fall. Before I had six classes total (two of which were half-classes that did not start until the halfway point,) and now I have only four (one of which does not begin until March) along with my library/information technology internship. That's right, I will be working on-sight in a library ten hours a week!  I will be learning so much in the upcoming months.

Let the adventure begin!
