So I changed my blog location again!  But hey, at least it's the same service.  Send me a message if you'd like to know where to find me.
5th-Sep-2006 11:34 pm - Farewell Fellows
All right...*sigh* I guess I'll be updating another blog instead of this one. I have been heckled and jeered into joining Vox.    Adieu, adieu, parting is full of frustration and sorrow!
4th-Sep-2006 08:42 pm - it begins again
Ah... let the cramming and the cycle of procrastination begin. Once again I find my self with more to do than hours to do it in. Not only do I have to get my studies and writing done, I have to plan a luncheon for the EMA...that's happening this Friday. Sadly it's only the beginning of the third week of classes and I've already mangaged to get a cold from lack of sleep. I know that once again I have to rely on God's strength and grace to get me through this semester - my last semester.

I wish I had the personal discipline to read the things I want to read. (think that's how it went anyway)

23rd-Jun-2006 10:01 am - I've been to a lot of places
I found this cool site through another blog that lets you mark all the states you've been to. It's neat to have my travelling visually marked out in this way. I like that I've been to a lot of places here. Now I need to start going places elsewhere in the world. I've only lived in 4 states (though I've lived in many different cities in each) but my family has always been big on driving to our destinations, rather than flying, and seeing the country. There's a lot of beautiful country and some very interesting towns/cities. I love that the geography of the U.S. is so diverse. Anyway,here's my map:

13th-Jun-2006 08:32 am - The Saga Continues
*Warning*: This blog may contain gross goopy details.

The saga of the eye that is. So about a week and a half ago - right before my vacation - my left eye started freaking out. By that I mean that it started to swell, get red, get a bump, and be really tender. I figured eh, this is probably just some random reaction tied to my unending allergies, so I took a wait and see attitude. So I waited one night and then another with continuously puffy results. Let me take a step back and relay a slightly amusing antecdote. So Wednesday night ( night 2) my friends Kim and Kerrie spent the night. In the morning Kerrie woke up, took one look at the eye, and started laughing uncontrollably. When finally able to catch enough breath to speak she said it reminded her of Will Smith's face in "Hitch". This of course set her off again and she eventually had to leave to room to regain composure. Anyway. So my friends were freakin about the eye and later that morning my mom came over to my apt and she proceeded to freak out and make me call my allergist right then and there. So I did, and rushed to his office because he was leaving in about 20 minutes....did I mention that when I made the phone call I still wasn't dressed or maintaining any semblance of readiness for the day? So after mad dashing, and a visit with the dude he gave me a 'scrip and told me to go to an opthemologist. If I couldn't get into an opthemologist within the next two days he told me I would need to go to an emergency room and have the opthy there look at it. I eventually did get a next day appointment. All this and I was only a tiny bit late to work.

So, next day, I go to the opthemologist and after waiting a million years in the waiting room I get to go in a room and have the sore thing poked and prodded and have gross yellow-orange drops smeared into my eye. He tells me its either a sty or a calazion - he doesn't really explain what those are though - and he's going to give me wonder drops for them. Paired with the drops I am supposed to apply a warm compress 2x/day; if that treatment hasn't eradicated the problem I should come into his office the Monday after i get back from vacation so he can "excise" it. EXCISE IT. And he never gave me any info about what that would entail, if there's any recovery time, etc. I, of course, was too stupid to ask any questions at that point. I just made the appointment.

Later that day, after work, I go and get the drop 'scrip filled. And thankfully, with my wonderful insurance, it only cost me $50. Luckily by this time the other 'scrip had done its work and it no longer looked like my eye was eating my face.

So I take my wonder drugs, think about the warm compress and go on vacation. I have a great vacation that is only marred by another insurgence...in my other eye. This one doesn't try to eat my face though, it just hurts. So I put the drops in both eyes. Things seem to be undercontrol for the rest of the vacation.

Then I get home. This past Sunday it hits me. Now I have not one, not two, but THREE freaky eye things. And this most recent one acting much like the first. The swelling, the redness, the pain. Good times. Now it hurts every time I blink. And in case you weren't aware of this fact, we blink alot - every 6 seconds on average. Unfortunately I don't think it's socially acceptable to say OW! every 6 seconds.

Oh, and for the grossy bit - last night the new sty came to a head on my eye lid and was "draining naturally" like the net says you should let it do. But I couldn't help pushing on my eye lid and making more pussy goo come out faster. Now I am continuing the practice of puttin pink eyeshadow on the good eye to try to even them out. Thank goodness for glasses and quasi-bangs.
10th-Jun-2006 01:55 am - *Freaking Out*
I'm totally wiggin! Where is my favorite blogger?!?!?!?!? What have they done with him? I just went to look for a new post from sumyunglibrarian and couldn't find his blog. I have a sinking suspicion that his blog went the way ours' did. Discovered and shut down by the PTB. I hope not, but it's the only conclusion I can come to. Damn all PTBs everywhere and their idiotic paranoia and hypocrisy.

So much for the first amendment and intellectual freedom. How can we be a profession known for uncompromising fervor against censorship and for intellectual freedom when we don't safeguard it from within? It seems like something happens everyday to make me loose faith in librarians and librarianship. The hypocrisy, cowardice, and small mindedness I encounter are revolting. The stench of bureaucracy is almost overpowering. It's not in my nature to lose hope though. I have to cling to the idea that passion and perseverance will win the day. I refuse to forfeit the race before I've even really begun it. I'm going to keep striving for excellence and progression in my lowly LA-I position. Then I'm going to get my MLIS and be a fucking fantastic Librarian.

Watch out: the revolution has already begun.
29th-May-2006 01:28 pm - Contemplation of Introspection
I haven't written in so long. Not just here, but at all. Phases are such interesting things. Half true, half excuse. It's true that I'm not in a writing/journaling mood, phase, whatever. But part of that is because I've allowed myself to be lazy, made excuses, etc. The connection between writing and being in tune with myself is interesting. Introspection and writing, or personal writing to be specific, go hand-in-hand for me it seems. But sometimes it's so easy to let that slide. To just do and be without questioning reflection. Is it better that way? Not really. But I easily fall into the habit of thinking and examining so much that I stop doing and am unhappy being. As usual, the road of moderation is the most beneficial, but it's so hard to stay on; the littlest thing can tip you either side, to absence or excess.
21st-Apr-2006 05:56 pm - I'm an INFJ!
So I took this Bloginality test and I thought the results were pretty insightful and accurate. A bit short for such lengthy results, but I'm all for quick...and of course i like being rare :)

You are an INFJ!

As an INFJ, you are Intraverted, iNtuative, Feeling , and Judging.
This makes your primary focus on Intraverted Intuation with Extraverted Feeling.

This is defined as a NF personality, which is part of Carl Jung's Idealist (Identity Seeking) type, and more specifically the Counselors or Protectors

As a weblogger, you are a perfectionist. Even though you have artistic thoughts, you may change designs frequently because of these perfectionistic insticts. You appreciate order and systems, and so you may stay with the same web blog program for a long time to keep things constant. Your personality type is rare, and so you are very special!

You can learn more about my type here.
