Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

It’s supposed to be rainy here, so let’s enjoy some cozy tea. My stomach has been being a bit of a problem lately, so I’ve actually been avoiding coffee (not the cause of the problem, but certainly doesn’t settle well either). I do need to remember to take the remaining cold brew that I have and make up some coffee ice cubes for later use.
Other than the troublesome tummy (I see the gastroenterologist on Friday so hopefully I’ll start getting some answers soon) things have been going okay. I’m now up to having three classes for school, and they’re all very interesting ones. One is the full-semester one about Data Mining which has been going well, though I do need to dedicate a bit more time to it since there are some details that I want to understand better about the software we’re using.
This week also started my “Reference in the Age of Google” class, which looks at the work of Reference Librarians in our modern, technological, time. It’s going to be really interesting to dig into for the rest of the semester. There is a final project for that class, and one of the options is a paper that is written with publication in mind, so I think I’m going to work on that. One of my goals in this program is to get something in an Academic Journal before I’m done.
The final class is a one-month long seminar on Copyright Law, a real overview and materials-gathering kind of class which will end with a good resource for me to reference when I’m actually out in the field and copyright questions come along. I’m excited about that one too, since it will have plenty of applications for me.
Other than that not much has been happening. Trying to keep afloat, trying to not get too pulled down in the mess that is National Politics right now, and doing what I can to make sure people VOTE. If you’re a U.S. Citizen make sure you have a plan to vote. Vote early if you can! It’s been a wild ride already, and I am pretty certain it’s just going to get wilder.
