Books and School

I’m reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. It’s about overcoming what stops you from sitting down and doing your art. I learned about it from a blog post  about books by Amanda Miniger. I really like Ms. Miniger’s  writing style. I just finished reading the fourth of the Wool series by Hugh Howey and wanted to switch gears for a bit before hitting the next one so I did a search for “best books of…” The War of Art came up again. It seemed like a good sign.  It’s a fast and enjoyable read.

Today is the day I finish my essay on public libraries. I’m enjoying the writing. I decided not to be there for the final group presentation in class. My part is small, and my energy is still pretty low. The other two group members are way more invested in it than I am anyway. Need to do some work for my real job too. I might take a stab at organizing one of the pantry shelves too.

After counting up my credit hours for the MLS degree, I have determined that I need 3 more. Happily, the History of Libraries is being offered! It’s in the first summer session which is an intense 6 weeks so I’m in for hard work. I’m looking forward to going back to being an IU employee and not a student.

      I’m kind of excited about it. I just wrote a paper defending libraries against a guy in the UK who thinks they are not necessary. I have this passion about libraries, but I don’t want to work in one.
