I've finished my first week back, its a half week, which is nice. The only class I've had so far was my database class and I think I'm going to really like it. First off, its taught by a woman who says that she loves to teach and this is her only class she teaches this semester. So I know she's there to really help and this is the second time she's taught the course so some of the kinks have been worked out. We learned about relational algebra and it actually kind of made sense to me.
Then I worked two reference shifts and one day at America Reads where I've done a lot of the non-fiction books. Its odd my week is going to be late days until Thursday then two early mornings at the end of the week.
I know I need to stop mentioning my cards and just send them, but I want to say that I loved all the cards I found. I'm not sure I can list them all off but you will all get cards among others. I'm a fan of mail whenever it arrives.
Now I'm going to do another round of the question meme from in_the_blue
and later I might write an entry about steampunk. I won some books from Tor.com
and they've been fascinating, but that's another entry.
I love this question meme since every time, I end up thinking about something from a slightly different angle.
→ Leave a comment saying you want to be interviewed.
→ I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
→ Update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
→ Include this explanation.
→ Ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.1. If you had to pick just one of your RP characters and drop all the rest, which would you keep? (I know, it's the Sophie's Choice of RP questions.)
This one is simpler than I expected. It would be Will Scarlett and if I got to keep a canon and original, Will and Tiwa. They're the two characters who I've really filled out their worlds and know even when they're quiet, they make me happy and inspire me.2. What's one piece of portable electronic equipment you never leave home without?
I'm rather boring, just my plain cellphone, not even a smart one. If I'm driving, I always have my iPod for good music.3. Makeup: yes or no?
Yes, sometimes. I'll wear lipstick or lip gloss but that's about it. I like an excuse to get dressed up but even then I might just add some eye shadow.4. All-time favorite band/musical artist?
Now this one is really hard, I love so much stuff. I think I'm going to say The Dubliners
, no matter my mood, they always bring me up. I was able to see them live in Dublin and it still is my bar for live music.5. What kind of non-computer artistic pursuits do you engage in?
I cook and bake. I love taking photographs and lately have been doing more with them. My father's last two presents were pictures I took and printed out. My holiday cards are based around a photo I took. My birthday present this year was a tiny canon powershot that lives in my bag so I can take photographs whenever I'm inspired. That was a habit I got into during my semester abroad in Athens, always have my camera. For a while, my camera was just too big and wasn't able to. I used to do theater and dance and really want to get back into them. Performance is one of those things that just makes me so happy, but I need a community for it. In college, I did LARPs and some theater stuff and I just miss getting on a stage and dancing or learning.
