-My FrankenIdea continues to FrankenIdea away!
-I've been watching Marie Kondo's program on Netflix ("spark joy!") as well as Midsomer Murders
-The Midsomer Murders episodes are because of this guy, the new Man I'm Google Stalking:
If you saw Bohemian Rhapsody, you may recognize Gwilym Lee as Brian May:
-I'm starting a graduate program in two weeks, studying library science because after working in a library archive as a volunteer for a year-ish and now as a part timer, I've decided that I want to be a librarian.
I was incredibly hesitant about applying for the library science program, since I already have a master's degree which I did precious little with. But after months of consideration and asking questions and reading, I decided to take the p…
