Hmm, I assume that you're a bit of a tech nerd, but only in a good way. I also assume that you play an instrument, perhaps the guitar or drums or piano.

Nothing wrong with being a techie! I’m more of a software guy than a hardware guy, though. I used to be a computer science major until I got fed up with the frustrations of programming. 3 years later. Now I do graphic design and work with Adobe programs on a near-daily basis. As for the instrument….I haven’t played any since middle school. :/ As a renewed electronic music lover, I’d love to learn how to make electronic music. Or get really good at using a launchpad, since that’s the closest thing to a physical electronic-based instrument since the turntable.

Hi! I study history at Oxford, and I use the History Faculty Library a lot. I agree that complaints about the badges, etc. are silly, but there are serious issues with the rehousing of books. The new HFL is relatively small, so they had to get rid of a lot of duplicate copies. That might not seem so problematic, but it's actually caused quite a few issues, as Oxford students rely on library books far more than their US counterparts. Sometimes I can't finish my assigned readings because of it.

See, those are very justifiable concerns that the library community would like to learn more about—this bit of an article seems to highlight superficial issues (badges) that make the one Oxford fellow’s comment on “attractiveness” seem shallow, when indeed he could be referring to the attractiveness of the place for academic research, etc.

Where can we read more on this?

Hey Ruth, I’m really sorry. I hope you’re okay. I’m sending positive vibes your way. <3

Thanks for the support everyone. I’m doing better now, trying to have a de-stressing evening.

This is awesome.

She just says the best things sometimes. Just drove her to the airport, and we had a long discussion about epic dreams we’ve both had.

Oh my gosh, that’s super cool!

I should post more about my wacky and large family…this is the tip of the iceberg.

Oh Ruth, I’m so sorry that you’ve been having a difficult day. It’s so impressive and brave of you to have booked that appointment, though! Seriously: I know how big and difficult of a step it is to take.

I sat around thinking of reasons not to do it for a good 2 and a half hours….sigh. At least I did it, which is indeed a good step. Thanks so much for your support, it really does mean a lot. *hug*
