If we were having coffee, we’d be meeting in the library. To be specific, you’d be leaning against the “check-out” area of the circulation desk holding a mug and I’d be perched on a desk chair on the other side. Yes, I’m at work. Saturdays are pretty quiet and we just got another big snow last night (more on that later), so we should be able to have a good chat.
It’s been a long week. Although the daily door counter tells me otherwise, work has felt extremely slow and it’s been exhausting. I have a lot on my plate right now that needs to get done outside of work, but when I finally get home, I practically collapse on my bed and go to right to sleep.
Right now, I’m working on applying to graduate school to pursue my Masters in Library and Information Science online. I’m only applying to one school, but it still feels really stressful. Yes, I know I should send out more application, but I just don’t have the time and motivation. Anyways, the application is going well-ish. My personal statement is still a draft in my head, but my undergraduate transcripts have been ordered. Now I just need to figure out transcripts for my time studying abroad, which is Monday’s big project.
It’s so crazy that Christmas is nearly here! I’m used to experiencing the holidays as a college student, so it’s weird to not have hours and hours of time to relax, watch movies, and bake. Most of my shopping is completed, thank goodness, and I only have four days of work next week. I’m really looking forward to the break.
This afternoon when I get off work, I’m heading to southern Minnesota for Christmas with my mom’s side of the family. I’ll be getting there several hours later than everyone else, but am still looking forward to it. The bad thing is, though, we just got hit with another large winter storm. My aunt and uncle live is right in the line of the highest snowfall. I hope the roads are clear because bad conditions could easily turn my two-hour journey into a five-hour one.
Anyways, that’s all I’ve got for this week. Be sure to stop by my blog later this week as I’m embarking on my third annual holiday-themed series. Until then, I’d love to hear about your week! What would you share over coffee?
