The freak out has begun…

Posted by lynn on Sep 19, 2006 in News

So the freak out has hit. I had a mild panic attack/realization last Thursday that I had A LOT of homework d due in the next week and I have spent the last few days busting my chops to catch up. I’m feeling a little better now, but I think I’ll feel much better when I finish my digital libraries paper that’s due a week from Thursday and get through my first Information Modeling assignment (whenever that gets assigned).

That being said, I’m happy to announce that I’m now the webbmistress for the ACRL student group – mostly because I already redid their site as part of my Web Design class project. Still, I’m excited about this. Hopefully I won’t screw it up.

As for my classes in general, I still really like Information Modeling although the homework is getting harder and more and more like algebra everyday. My mind bends a bit everytime I work on some of it and I often go to bed with a headache. Digital libraries is okay. A lot of what we’re going over is repetitive with what I learned in Electronic Publishing a year ago, so I’m eagerly anticipating getting on to newer stuff. I’m also sweating a little under the workload for this class. Not that it’s extreme, but just hard to manage with the Information Modeling work and the chaos that is my job.

Anyway, that’s the update for now. I’m going to bo back to freaking out now.


5th semester

Posted by lynn on Sep 8, 2006 in Random

Hi all.

I’m actually not freaking out about this semester for some reason, even though both classes appear to be doozies. I’m taking Information Modeling which is way more fun than it sounds. It’s like doing logic puzzles for homework. I’m also taking Digital Libraries, which is a lot of work, but I’m being calm so far. I managed to get Greenstone installed without too many tears (thanks, Phil), and I’m moving around the interface pretty easily. We’ll see how long my comfort lasts.

Anyway I suspect my “I’ll live” attitude comes from two places:

a) 4 previous semesters of coping
b) being so overworked at my job that I don’t have time to care

Seriously, work kinda blows right now, so when I get home I really don’t want to stress more. Nice thing is that I finally got wireless hooked up in my apartment so I can do homework in bed.

Anyway, more updates will come, I’m sure. I leave for Champaign in less than 3 weeks.
