Mt Rainier and Library School

Mt Rainier from Discovery Park, Seattle, WA. 11.11.2010

Being a graduate student is a full-time occupation for me. I love it — the education, my classmates, the theory, practice, readings and reflections. But, every once in a while, it is nice to escape for a day (or several) and put it all behind you.

That’s what I did this weekend. Last Wednesday I tweeted: “I will not be doing any more homework tonight. Or tomorrow. Or Friday. take that #libraryschool!!” And now it is Monday. I spent the entire weekend enjoying the company of friends and reading for fun and watching movies and going for walks. I’m ready for this week — I’ll be returning to the classroom and my readings with clear eyes. I need to do this more often. Live a more balanced life.
Act. Rest. Eat. Drink. Study. Sleep. Talk. Listen. Share.

    Most definately. I submitted a library school assignment on Thursday evening, then had Friday and the weekend off. Library school is an intense experience and sometimes it is a good idea to stop and redress the balance.

    Sounds like a great weekend. I did something similar, though still did a bit of homework over the course of last week.
