Ripping cds to itunes whilst watching the snooker. Exciting times, if i was on facebook i'd detail the process with constant updates.

Wonderful AG. Don't your workmates mind the song titles being added? Over here if folk did that it be unprofessional (old fart stick-in-the-muds).

To add to Faceo's post and to claim the full house i'd give Richie his credit for What Goes On.

 

I did this for our official workshop flyer a few months ago (you may remember it once you see it here, I posted it another thread back then), and the people loved it! They haven't quit talking about it yet! They are all expecting a doozy of an annual report out of me.

Bee Informed : Taking the Sting Out of RDA

The time for sticking your head in the sand and pretending that RDA (Resource Description and Access) won’t come to pass was yesterday. The national RDA committee took a long and winding road and ended up with a new set of cataloging rules we in library technical-services land must follow. Are you crying HELP! yet? With a little help from your friends in the OLA Technical Services Roundtable (TSRT), you can learn about these new rules and how to apply them to a variety of formats. We Can Work It Out and help you carry that load of learning the new ropes. Though $60 for OLA members and $120 for non-members can’t buy you love, it can buy you a day of practical, hands-on experience learning how to use the RDA rules.

We will all come together on October 25, 2013 at the Northwest Library (5600 NW 122nd St, Oklahoma City, OK 73142) for this event. Prudence, our lively, informative instructor and group work coordinator for the day and her small-group assistants, won’t leave you feeling like you’ve been through a hard day’s night. From the time we say hello at 9:00 am for registration until we say goodbye at 3:30 pm, we will be covering this goal and its objectives:

 

Goal:

Participants will be able to identify, verify, and create catalog records for materials in various carrier types, using RDA standards and MARC formatting

 

Objective 1: Participants will be able to identify MARC records created under RDA standards

Objective 2: Participants will be able to utilize MARC fields to describe materials by RDA content type,

                       media type, and carrier type

Objective 3: Participants will be able to utilize RDA standards to transcribe information about materials,

       including title, publication, extent, and dimensions

 

Please, please me by registering for the workshop by October 19th. Here are links to the official flyer and the online registration form:

Yip i remember that.

So is this now pretty much expected every time you do one of these?

The future looks a bit bleak.

I don't want to go into detail too much, but we might have to move out of this house pretty soon and my parents may not be together anymore soon either. I actually don't mind the latter lol. I also think my grandma won't make the end of the year. On top of that I'm unemployed, and I'm too old to get another one of those side jobs now. I'm too expensive. This sucks, especially since our financials are in the state they're in and I'm thinking of moving out. Of course I have a scholarship, but I'll never get everything together before the end of this year. I'm also a bit worried. I mean, how am I going to manage living on my own?

I'm just trying to pass all my exams and essays and stuff, so I'll have all my ECTS at the end of this school year. At least then my study is safe. So I'm trying to focus a lot on school, I'm actually overworking myself a bit. And it's very hard to focus on school or anything else for that matter at the moment. 

It's a good thing I'm such an optimistic and cheerful person lol.

Listened to Mr. Kite's cover (check it out, it's good), as well listening to Ashley Eriksson. Probably not many will know her, but she did the ending credits theme for the animated TV series, Adventure Time, and she has wrote and sing marvelous songs and her singing is kind of whispered but that gives her uniqueness and beautifulness. This is one of her songs that have caught me. I have been repeating this song for the last hour or two.

Thank you very much! But your link was broken, I fixed it in this post.

Just got done watching my own Game 1. Stupid Rangers. Overtime. We're not good enough to win this series. I've known that the whole time, I was trying to deny it though. Stupid Penguins.

Haha, yeah I watched that…too bad. My good friend (& fellow Beatle fanatic in uni) is a big Sidney Crosby/Penguins worshipper. I'm gonna give him a call tonight and razz him!

Coincidentally, I'm watching the Ducks/Kings right now, and the DJ in the arena just played a bit of "Tomorrow Never Knows" during a pause!

Finals.  I'm so stressed out.  I have two days to write an eight-page paper and I'm not even ready to begin writing yet.

@Ahhh Girl, I enjoyed every word of the report! You've done a wonderful job.

I hope things work out for you, @Linde. I'm sure you will manage things on your own eventually. It's always only the beginning that's truly difficult. Got my fingers crossed for you :)

 

As for what's happening in my life; well, things are surprisingly okay. Finals aren't stressing me out, which is odd, as I have a tendency to panic in situations like this. I'm graduating high school, so on top of the usual exams, I've got the Matura (which is basically five state exams that I can't get into any University in the world without), which I haven't even begun to study for. And when that's over in mid-June, I've got to sit down and take learning German very seriously. Otherwise it is no Univesity in Germany, and no future in my country. And, the only thing that's really worrying me in this situation is that I'm too relaxed. It's odd and frightening, more than the actual exams. 
But perhaps that's got to do with my friend getting through all her chemotherapy sessions cancer-free. I'd spent too much time with her during this tough period, and that's possibly what's made me look at the world differently. As stressful, painful and worrisome as it has been, I am glad I lost sleep, concentration and time for studying over it. Besides being there for my friend, I've set my priorities straight as a plus.
So here I am, going though this forum with my Maths book in front of me. I keep convincing myself that the reason I'm not frantically studying, as I usually am, is because it's only a revision of things I already know, and because I had another horrible fight with my mum minutes ago which I am yet to recover from. The truth is, I am disappointed and lonely and so tired, but oddly happy at the same time. Must be another mixed episode in my bipolar journal.

@ScrambledEggs Your written English is superb. Have you ever thought about attending a university in the U.S.?
