Group Projects

I cannot tell you all how much I hate working in groups. There is something about having to rely on other people for part of a grade or completing a project that is really annoying. I’d rather just do it all myself. It also seems very strange to me that library school is so hellbent on group projects when it seems as though most of the people in library school have a social disorder where they don’t know how interact with people. This is probably not making me friends in the library world. Eh.

I also especially hate when professors form your groups for you. Do you want to know why? Because if I was able to choose my own group, I would definitely not have chosen as one of my members, THE GIRL WHO CAN’T CONTROL THE VOLUME OF HER VOICE and talks and talks yet there is nothing meaningful coming out. I have experience with this girl, because unfortunately I had to work with her on two projects last semester. One being where we had to write a paper together. Do you all know how awful that is? She was like backseat typist. Listen bitch, Mario fucking taught me how to type, I know what I’m doing.

This is going to be a long semester.

Ego Boost

Well my little gems, I successfully survived my first class of the semester. I kept yawning through the whole thing, but I survived.

I’m so tired! Work and school on the same day, I think my body is in shock.

I figured I would relay this entertaining little tidbit from my day. During my lunch break, my coworker and I decided to hit up a little cafe a couple of blocks away. We use lunch as an excuse to get out of the office and refresh our brains. Normally,  I bring something to eat and we sit in this little pavement park and scope out dudes. It’s the little things that make getting through the day worth it. Today, on our way back to the office we were walking and this posse of three teenagers (maybe? Trying to tell how old someone is, is getting to be too hard.) was walking towards us. There were two girls and a boy. The boy looked a little bit like he could have been a skateboarder in 90’s hailing from California. Now, this kid looked at me kind of intently and then says as he’s passing, “You have a really nice face”. That little asshole made my day! I said, “Uh, thanks?” and continued on my way.

Too bad he appeared to be too young for me. I could be out on a date right now.

I have my Rare Books class at the NYPL tomorrow night…I’ll fill you in on what it’s like to be in a library after hours!
