Liz Returns?!

It's been a while.  Things have been inconsistent, posting has been sparse, and I've generally been absent from the blogosphere.  Well friends, soon posting might just get back to a regular schedule, because I am done with graduate school!

That's right. I've earned my MLIS.  I had few moments where I literally doubted whether or not I could do it, but summer semester was pretty stressful, and I was ready to have some of that weight off my chest.  It didn't help that a few personal problems, including the passing of my maternal grandmother, kicked off summer semester.  However, I enjoyed my classes, and got to intern in the children's department of a totally awesome public library.  Ultimately, I made it.

I am in a transitional phase, which probably doesn't surprise any of you, and am headed back to Minnesota while I figure my life out.  While I graduated August 3rd, I've had to spend a good deal of time preparing to move and tying up loose ends. In addition to my move, the month of August also included a brief vacation for me (glamping with friends!).   I had the chance to canoe, swim, hike, outlet shop, and enjoy campfires, so it was all good.

There is a lot I've got that I want to blog about. There are discussion posts stewing in my brain, and 22 books on my "need-to-review" shelf on GoodReads. I've got lots of ideas,but at the moment, my primary goal is to have a move that involves no more fiascos (because sadly, there have been a few) and organizing my priorities.  In the mean time, enjoy this picture of me and a ferocious beast.
I hope that all of you have a fantastic August, and I hope to see you sooner rather than later with some more posts.  Just give me time. Until then, happy reading!
