Lots going on around here! I’ve been accepted to San Jose State University. (The program is all online) I’ll be working on my Masters of Library & Information Science. I’m pretty stoked about it. Finally! I start in January and have to register tomorrow, so I’m also already feeling a little bit overwhelmed.
That’s not the only thing that’s new with me. I got a job offer on Saturday. I’m now the “Assistant Children’s Specialist” at a local library! Really excited about it. Finally! Job hunting (and writing a million cover letters) really sucks. The job should be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get started.
I’ve done a bit of decorating around the house for Thanksgiving and also got some new curtains in our kitchen. That bookcase works as a make shift pantry for us. Not ideal, but the new curtains make me hate it a little less. We also got a blanket of snow the other day and I’ve been catching up on my Project Life album.
I went to a used book sale and came home with a haul for only $4. Afterwards I had lunch with a friend who I hadn’t seen in awhile. We got to the restaurant at 11:00 and although we finished eating around 12:00, we didn’t leave until 2:00. (Needless to say I left the waiter a good tip for keeping his table occupied so long.) We had a lot to catch up on and it was so nice to chat.
Andy and I also went to see a musical comedy at the university called Lucky Stiff. It’s about a man who has to take the corpse of his dead uncle on a trip to Monte Carlo in order to inherit 6 million dollars from him. It was hilarious. We went to it not knowing that it was a musical and only having a vague idea of the plot. I’m glad we saw it.
Also, this weekend my family rode the train down town to have dinner at the Cheesecake Factory for my mom’s birthday. It was my niece’s first time on the train and she was loving it! She couldn’t stop grinning and saying, “We’re going to Salt Lake City!” So dang cute.
How have you all been?
