All those question marks make it seem like a lot is riding on this answer. I hope I answer it correctly.
Do you believe in ghosts?
In the traditional sense, no, I don’t think so. I don’t think that dead people are just hanging around in the modern world waiting to move on. Mostly because that sounds really terrible but also because I think a lot more places would be haunted were that the case. I like mintypineapple‘s idea that ghosts can be a living memory imprinted on a specific location. That’s probably the closest to what I would agree with. I like the idea that a moment can be so emotional that it leaves a mark.
All that said, I firmly believe that catastrofries‘s photography is 100% HAUNTED. If ghosts exist, they’re near her.

15) what is your favorite memory
I’ve already answered this, but like I said before, I have a LOT of favorite memories. Here’s another one: last year I went to the Zena Sutherland lecture to hear John Green speak. It was a really great lecture and it was cool to be surrounded by so many librarians in this space that was really just for us. I was feeling the perks of my profession. Afterwards, we went downstairs for wine and appetizers to this totally chill librarian party and I went up to talk to John. In his words, we are “acquainted” and have been for many years and he recognized me and gave me a big hug. He told my then-professor how he’d gotten to see me grow up and how cool that was. She proudly told him that I was one of her students and was really promising. I respected both of them greatly and it was nice to hear them talking about me so positively. Also, every librarian in earshot was mad envious of my knowing John.
