So part of my role in the Library is to serve as the “expert” on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives – its super big and I’m like nervous about actually executing everything correctly (Thanks weird perfectionist streak!) As part of this role, I’m looking into developing some sort of survey to send to students to… Continue reading Student Experience or Belongingness?
I’ve been spending a lot of time lately just learning. It’s been overwhelming starting a new job – It’s really pushed me to develop a learning and development plan for myself.

I pretty much only did two things today: watched Zero Dark Thirty and had Chinese food. I’m a fan of my fortunes, especially the self-improvement one!
One of my biggest things since starting my new job is to bring lunch. I don’t want to end up buying lunch all the time. One thing I miss about my old job – free lunches! Thank goodness I’m all about bento boxes. I have four now, plus random tupperware-type things. Here are my two… Continue reading Lunchtime!!!
