i’m finally getting excited about the possibility of grad school by reading about combination MLIS/MA programs (thanks to this article on the toast for inspiring this search)

but every time i google Master of Library Science the first things that come up are articles like “a bad investment” and “no. 1 worst degree for jobs”

SOOOOOO

Joey Lucas: If you polled 100 Donnas and asked them if they think we should go out, you’d get a high positive response. But, the poll wouldn’t tell you it’s because she likes you, and she knows it’s beginning to show. She needs to cover herself with misdirection.

I love this site! I check this every day at work for a new literary curiosity every time. I’ve been stalking a lot of literary sites of late, and I’m not going to stop any time soon!

frustrated b/c i’ve been living with this family for a week now and i still haven’t really settled in. and a week is about how long it should take, i think? idk. they’re all perfectly nice and i do like them. but i just can’t get comfortable here. the language thing. i don’t ever feel like contributing to discussions. i miss mari’s house, actually.

i think i’m just homesick today. it’s been kind of a tough week at school and i haven’t seen any of my friends in a few days. i don’t know what to do with my afternoons here. so much down time.

just after i decide to totally write off all engineering students as assholes, i meet my host brother, who is an engineering student but also an intelligent, creative, funny, considerate, cute, wealthy, musical, fun-loving guy 

just goes to show ya
