Things that I have learned after one semester at SI

  • No one else knows what they're doing, either.
  • The second semester will be easier, if only because I won't waste so much time wondering if I will ever make friends.
  • The point of Social Systems & Collections was to teach us vocabulary and introduce us to articles and authors we will have to reference for the rest of our lives as information professionals.
  • There actually was a point to Use of Information, and it wasn't necessarily just to teach us how to work in groups.
  • Grad school is haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard. But I will survive, because I always do.

Yeah, you'd like to think I'd learned that lesson!

B is for bubble tea, that's good enough for me!

That last one is what scares me. I suppose it's what's keeping me from jumping head first into the grad school current...

Oooh, hard work. I decided to go and teach English on a tropical island instead of going to do postgraduate studies (although if I could have afforded to carry on stuydying, I would have done). Is that one semester left or three?
