This week has been busy! Classes started, department meetings and dealing with IT has worn me out. Monday was my first graduate class. It’s a tiny one, most are older and have had jobs, and some are just in the MA program. The class is 2 hours and 3o minutes. 5 hour credit. It is interesting. This week we are learning about footnotes and how to cite papers in the Chicago style. Thanks so my great undergraduate university – Cumberland I know how to do this and it is still fresh on my mind.
Today we actually got out a lithe early, which gave me time to try to figure out why my ID will not let me into any buildings. Yes, you have to swipe your card to get into anyplace. Very different than Cumberland. Safety first! After about a 1 hour phone conversation and countless emails I could finally get into the library. Let me tell you, this place is gorgeous. Three stories. They have their own interlibrary loan room! After printing off my PDF on how to properly use my new camera when it comes to taking pictures of buildings, I headed over to the HPRES building. ID still didn’t work. Another phone call and more emails I could finally get in without having to wait for someone to get to the door and pray I won’t be late to class.
I headed to Panera for a smoothie and some study time. I also met with the head leader for Young Life here in Savannah. I will be getting involved with that again and I cannot wait. I won’t get into that because thats too personal to put on the inter web.
My online class is going well too. A lot of work. There is actually a girl who works at a place I interviewed at, but they did not have any openings. Small world!
There was also a department meeting for new students. I found out that hopefully I will be able to go to France for a quarter to study. They go every other year.
My plans for tonight fell through. I had planned on going to the student preservation association guest speaker, but either he started his speech 15 minutes early, I was told the wrong time, or just stuff happened. Oh well, there will be plenty more to go to. It did allow me to get a lot of work done tonight so I can spend Saturday watching UK take down UL.
Kentucky made it to the final four. We are playing Louisville. Yuck. Kentucky has to be going crazy this week. Well, I know they are. I am sure that are a few of you who are very happy that you won’t have to hear me talk about UK right now. Think again.
Well, time to call it a night. My contacts are going crazy and I am seeing three lines of this sentence.
