April Insanity

April has been insane.

I have been on three different trips (three days at the Texas Library conference in Houston, three days in Phoenix with Kayla, and four days in Salt Lake City with Bart’s family).

I’ve been finishing up my capstone project, writing the abstract for it, and prepping the poster for the poster session.

School assignments have been coming fast and furious. My jobs have been busy.

And through it all, I’ve been picking up books here and there, the stack next to my bed, on the coffee table, the end table, and my desk getting larger and larger, while I get increasingly wild-eyed whenever I think about how little reading time I have and how much school work I have to do.

The end is in sight, though. Two of my classes met for the last time this afternoon, and my final project in another class is due tomorrow. After that, it’s just bits and pieces to finish up (I hope), and then, at last, summer, glorious summer, will be here.

    Awww…summer! I remember how fun summer was when I was in school. Enjoy it! (And best wishes for high grades in all your classes.)

    Yet you keep turning out book reviews, so you must be squeezing in quite a bit of reading. That’s a good thing because it is one way to make it through all the hard stuff. I actually read the most during school, rather than now when I am home–kind of weird the way that goes! Good luck on your final projects!

    That does sound crazy! I promise I will get back to your email about the MA state test soon, I have to look up some info on it myself. I don’t know if anything has changed since 2005 when I took the test.

    Sherry, I feel your pain. I didn’t even get to see her this past weekend. LAME.

    Hurray for summer!!! I can’t believe how busy it gets for people this time of year. But hopefully you’ll have plenty of time to relax and read for the next 3-4 months! 🙂

    SO I haven’t read your blog in a while – but I wanted to note that my May has been similar – I had 8 books that were ‘super overdue’ to the library. I thought for sure I was going to owe the library atleast $20 – but – I did not b/c they were ysa books. how glorious! hope your summer is going fabulous!
