Now I feel (perhaps delusionally so) that I'm in the driver's seat, the Interweb at my command as I boldly get up to speed with technology everyone else mastered a couple of years ago. Still, it feels good to get a delicately painted toe planted in the 21st century. Want to know what feels even better? Hearing my coworkers talking about the program.

Well, I got a bit behind, but there is so much good stuff in each week's "Thing" that I just couldn't help it. I think I could easily take a month on each topic. I love that I'm learning about all new things from what I learned in the Building Your Base series of classes in the fall. While I'm not utilizing all of these things yet, I have them in my head and think of how to gradually add them to enhance the library.
this was a great experience and I learned a lot about each thing, but also I learned about myself and "re" found my love for learning and writing! I will definitely continue to use some of the "things" and hopefully will be able to apply my new findings to grad school
