It all adds up to one effing busy start to the summer. But its over and I can de-stress the rest of the summer until fall semester starts.
Summer is officially here and the dreaded SRP is back, the holds list for Twain and Steinbeck grew exponentially overnight. Also making a return are the Russian lifeguards, I noticed they're all from Kyrgyzstan this year.
I am going to attempt to read more(? can't technically be referred to as "more" when it's nonexistent) during my down time. I've placed holds on all of the "Worst-Case Scenario" series. I know it's not classic literature but it's a start and who knows when one will need to know how to survive a runaway sled or how to survive a riot.

Two weeks to go until I get to see what the big fuss is about the ALA and convention. What's better than a bunch of librarians herded together? I think I'm looking forward to it mostly because my summer classes end that week. Whatever the reason, I'm not sure what to expect. Half the librarians I talk to tell me to join ALA (like there isn't a better way to spend my disposable income) and the other half say that ALA is a joke.

Which reminds me, don't approach me at the desk and TELL me to forgive your fines. It doesn't work that way. You just end up coming off like a B, and you add to my jadedness towards every patron.
