A Sty in my Eye

Today I'm at the public library.
I have a sty in my eye.
It's pretty painful.

In other news I hung out with my sister and nephews the other day. It was a lot of fun. We went to the bookstore and I bought a few new books. Haven't started any of them but hopefully I will when I'm on vacation in Utah or Vegas. I don't even remember the titles.

Not an interesting post. I know. :(

I need help...

I need some help with some book recommendations. I have $20 to spend at Barnes and Noble and I need to spend it by 4/10/11. Any ideas? All my favorite authors haven't put out anything new.

I'm looking for adult-ish books. While I love YA, I don't own much and that's okay with me.

I like the paranormal fiction genre. I like Mysteries. I like a lot..I just can't think of anything that I want to buy..

Feeling a bit overwhelmed

School and work, school and work. That's my life. I'm feeling like I'm missing out on having tons of fun because of school and work. Now, I know that this is Real Life. I get that. I just want to have fun too and I feel like at the end of the week I'm so exhausted all I want to do is sleep.

I'm also a bit behind in my reading for school. And a bit behind means...1,000 pages. Not kidding. So many articles and stuff on things that I don't really care about at all. Information Retrieval and classifications and stuff. I'm thinking that maybe I made the wrong decision to go to Library School. What if it's all stuff like this? I hate it. I'm sure it's not, I'm sure I'm being overly dramatic. :)

Dramatic.. me? NEVER!

I'm sure I'll survive. Just venting a bit here. :)

It's Spring!

Technically I'm on Spring Break right now. For grad school anyways, the school that I work at doesn't start their Spring Break until April 18. I can't wait. 2 whole weeks of not waking up insanely early! YAY!!!!!!

I can't believe it's April 1. Can you believe it? Where has the year gone? School is going to be over soon, both my classes and my job and I can't wait. I plan on relaxing a bit this summer and then hopefully working a bit more.

I feel like I never have anything interesting or funny to say anymore. I bet I do I just don't think that it's very funny or interesting. This month is going to be great, though. Lots of traveling. I'm going to Utah to see my favorite cousin graduate college. Can't wait. I'm excited to eat at all the fun restaurants he's been telling me about and I'm excited to support him. He's the second grandchild to graduate college. I beat him by a year, have I mentioned he's 5 years younger than me? That kid is crazy smart and I'm so happy to say that I'm related to him.

Also as soon as I get back from Utah, I'm home for like 4 days and then I head off to Las Vegas. I'm going with a group of co-workers and friends to see Steve Martin. Have I mentioned my love of Steve Martin? Not only is the man funny but he's a great writer (LOVE LOVE LOVE Shopgirl) and an extremely talented banjo player. He'll be playing with the Steep Canyon Rangers, who I also LOVE. Talk about talented, they are crazy good. I've seen them play with Steve twice before and I'm excited to go see them again.

The other reason I'm so excited is that I'm going to Las Vegas for the first time since I've been 21. The last time I went was with my boyfriend at the time and I was 18. I couldn't really do much. We stayed at the Venetian or the Bellagio (I honestly can't remember) and I remember going to the Star Trek thing (his choice) and seeing the Amazing Jonathan (my choice). I also got to order room service. It was fun.

I'm assuming it's going to be a whole different experience this time.

Watch out Vegas, the librarians are coming!
