I felt like a librarian today in this outfit. Which, if it were 1962, I think I would love to be a librarian. I love books, I love organizing things... sounds like a good fit to me! However, this little thing we're obsessed with now called technology lessens the appeal of the librarian's job. When I was researching for my master's classes, I was overwhelmed by the countless sources available online. Trying to find the perfect sources for my research papers, whether they were about the feminine voice in French writing or the role of culture in second language learning (or anything in between), made me go a little batty. So if I had to maneuver through the world of online resources everyday, you can only imagine how crazy I'd be. It's a bummer though, because I sure do love books.
Speaking of this love of mine, I'm now reading Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews, about a crazy mother who locks her children in the attic. It's quite a feel-good story. It's also pretty hard to put down. I just started it last night, and already those poor kids have been in the attic for a year.

By the way, was this post nerdy enough for you? Sorry about that--sometimes I can't keep it in.
