I went to SF yesterday and saw this on the sidewalk while checking out the Painted Ladies.
I ended up going to the city today. Mmm. Katsu Curry!
I’m challenging myself to do a photo a day. Here’s my view of the Bay – blocked by Warren Hall. It’s a gorgeous view and will be better soon. I like the lines present in this shot. I’m a dork.
Internet Librarian (#il2012) is easily my most favorite conference. I always learn something new, meet someone new, and get the chance to share new things going on with me with the library community. It was a crazy, whirlwind week, with two conferences within two weeks. I’ll use that as an excuse for the delay in… Continue reading I miss #il2012 already!
These past two weeks, I’ve spent them considering what to do for some conference/paper proposals. As an exercise in becoming a better, more proficient writer, I figured I should start to write down my ideas and see if I can get a conversation started about them. There’s a call out for the gameRT for proposals… Continue reading On the need for a conversation

So excited. One thing I learned while I was teaching that class was that I talk really… Continue reading When teaching your first class, talk slower!

Honestly, having never heard Jeff Mangum/Neutral Milk Hotel before I started dating B, it wasn’t on my radar. The band is good, not necessarily my cup of tea though…… Continue reading A lesson in collective nostalgic hysteria
I sometimes like to sit here and fantasize about what I’ll be doing in the future. I’d love to teach again, and not just literacy/library/research related courses. Like actual, random, curricular courses. Much like how UCLA had the Fiat Lux program, I’d love the opportunity to propose a class and teach it. One class I’m… Continue reading (Lesson) Planning for the Future
Lately, I’ve gotten into the concept of gaming. In this case, I don’t mean playing video games (although you wouldn’t know it by my World of Warcraft account…). I mean, video games are fun and all, but I don’t find them appealing mainly because I’ve lost the social aspect of it. Despite being an MMORPG,… Continue reading Gaming and the search for perfect information
