Back to School

This weekend was the 40th Anniversary celebration at my college. The highlight (and the real reason some of us went) was the alumni frisbee game, followed by post-game hanging out and not much sleep.

Hampshire tradition – being only 40 we don’t have many – dictates that you get to ring the bell after, and only after, finishing your thesis and having a last official meeting with your advisors. Four years of work for a lifetime of bell-ringing privileges…

Sounds good.

(The bell is up high, out of the frame, but it’s there.)

Tomorrow I embark on a different adventure; tomorrow is my first day of class for library school! Which makes tonight the first “school night” I’ve had in three years.

I’m going to bed early.

What I’m reading: Love Stories in This Town, Amanda Eyre Ward; Harry Potter (#5), J.K. Rowling (audiobook)
What I’m listening to: The Crane Wife, The Decemberists; Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words, Daniel Barenboim; Bach’s Cello Suites, Yo-Yo Ma
