Ridiculous TA strikes again. Seriously how can you be over 30 and still not able to read a simple set of instructions.
I know right! Like today this girl passed her comprehensive exams and she called me to ask me to come along and celebrate and then she asked about whether I was going to see the guy. And there are people to talk to, and it’s just so weird. It only took 3 years, sheesh.
It is such a weird feeling to finally have friends in my department.
hey friends. my computer may or may not be dead. and i don’t feel comfortable tumbling on a public machine. so if you need me email and/or text is best. i will still be able to get any tumblr messages but lets face it we all know tumblr mobile app is not auper reliable so I might not respond very quickly.
Nothing like a blue screen of death to start your day of right.
i am just so fortunate to know some of you . i just sometimes can’t believe the kindness and support that i have received here. i just want to send you all a big hug and smooch!
We live in a “diverse and often fractious country,” writes Robert Dawson, but there are some things that unite us—among them, our love of libraries. “A locally governed and tax-supported system that dispenses knowledge and information for everyone throughout the country at no cost to its patrons is an astonishing thing,” the photographer writes in the introduction to his book, The Public Library: A Photographic Essay. “It is a shared commons of our ambitions, our dreams, our memories, our culture, and ourselves.”
But what do these places look like? Over the course of 18 years, Dawson found out. Inspired by “the long history of photographic survey projects,” he traveled thousands of miles and photographed hundreds of public libraries in nearly all 50 states. Looking at the photos, the conclusion is unavoidable: American libraries are as diverse as Americans. They’re large and small, old and new, urban and rural, and in poor and wealthy communities. Architecturally, they represent a range of styles, from the grand main branch of the New York Public Library to the humble trailer that serves as a library in Death Valley National Park, the hottest place on Earth. “Because they’re all locally funded, libraries reflect the communities they’re in,” Dawson said in an interview. “The diversity reflects who we are as a people.”
