So many things going on

April 18, 2009

Here is a quick rundown of all of the things going right now:

1. The semester is closing, and I have two big projects to complete: one cataloging final project and an annotated bibliography for my reference class.

2. In the next few days, I am expecting to receive a contract from the publishing company that is commissioning me to write a book. I will give more detail on that when it is signed and sealed.

3. I am looking for freelance writing jobs and might have found a long-term gig. Again, I will provide more information on that when available.

4. Summer classes start in May. I have already planned out the rest of my master’s program, which concludes a year from May (2010).

5. My kids are growing like weeds and eating like bottomless pits. I will post pictures soon.

6. We are about to push the TV show online in a big way; more on that as it develops.


Librarian Fellowship Open Until April 24

April 16, 2009

This is the final call for any people interested in a full diversity fellowship from a grant provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, organized by the Indiana State Library and Indiana University School of Library and Information Science.

Applicants must demonstrate their commitment to enhanced diversity in Indiana libraries and agree to work in an Indiana library for at least two years after completing the 16-month program. (And Indiana is a great place to live, in case you were wondering).

I am 1/4 of the way through the program and have enjoyed it thoroughly thus far. It is hard work but well worth it in the end. Contact me if you need help applying. For more general information, see here.


Poor Wolverine

April 8, 2009

From the Register:

“Hugh Jackman has described himself as “heartbroken” by the leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine which saw an incomplete version appear on several BitTorrent websites ahead of the official 1 May US release date…”

What the flip?  Heartbroken?  Come on Wolverine!  Man up!
