I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Sweet Baby Jebus, What Hath I Wrought?

I just got the textbook for one of my first classes, actually *the* first class - LIB200. There ain't nothing lower.

Dudes, it's MARTIAN. Greek. Hieroglyphics.

Ok, no, it's really not, and I had only flipped through it while having half an ear on the kids and putting dinner in the oven, but it just gave me that sinking feeling of not being as smart as I maybe thought I was. I think I need to remember that no one starts this program - well, ok, many people do not start this program with any knowledge of information systems or library terminology or the like. Granted, a lot of my peers have been working in various capacities in various libraries around the state and country, so they may well be farther along the clever path.

Here's the book if anyone else feels like seeing what beginning erstwhile librarians/archivists have to wrangle. I'm already ok with the 'shhhing" part.

I couldn't even read the description on Amazon without screaming, but admittedly, I am a bit travel-lagged at the mo.

I haven't even been able to register for all of my courses yet!!!
But, I bet this book will be on one of my syllabi too...

But school is fun! I love it (even when I'm teaching the uninterested and clueless).

BTW, we moved from KY up to southeastern WA. I'm in the same time zone as you now!
