Hello, friends, and welcome to another installment in my "on this day in my history" series, where I summarize all my past diary entries for a certain date of the year. The last installment (May 12) can be found here. Now it's time to see what's happened on January 26 throughout my life!
January 26, 2005, Ten Years Old
I enjoyed dance at school, but I hated orchestra, which was "1 hour of loneliness" and "no use."
No January 26 entry in 2006.
January 26, 2007, Twelve Years Old
I found school to be pretty boring today. I was critical about my art project, felt like social studies had been too much work, and had to convince two feuding friends to continue with our small strings ensemble.
First of all, big news: you can now order my editing services at Kira B. Edits, which opened for business on the 14th! If you've got any text that really needs a good professional look-over, send it my way.
So in the past I've talked about my most and least favorite teachers, but I've never talked about the classes I liked and hated most. Since I've now left the educational system for the foreseeable future, I figured it's a good time to do that!
In elementary school, things were pretty simple. We kind of had classes, but mostly it was all a long block with the same teacher talking about lots of different subjects--from English (my favorite) to math (definitely not my favorite). But we also had "specials," usually one a day, that focused on arts and sports. Library was my favorite special, of course, because I love books. The one thing I didn't like was having a limit on how many I could check out! I also was never a fan of being told what to read, but generally, the teachers gave "gentle suggestions" rather than orders. (And I ignored them.) P.E. was my least favorite special., because even then, years before I developed fibromyalgia, I did not do well trying to accomplish physical tasks.
Though I chose to quit my MLIS after five classes, I learned quite a lot during my time in grad school. For example, I learned:
Most of all, I learned to appreciate libraries and librarians more than ever before. Though I've always loved libraries, and I've always known that libraries are for more than books, I never really understood the true purpose and scope of the library as an institution. And I never respected librarians the way that I do now.
All righty, friends! It is time for our quarterly humor roundup, in which I share the 25 funniest posts I saw on the Internet during the last three months, as well as the single funniest video. Check them out!
It's now 2019, which means it's time for new year's resolutions! First, we'll review last year's resolutions, and then I'll list my new ones for this year.
2018 Resolution Review
1) Transcribe my old diaries.
I don't even remember making this resolution! I think I did make some progress in my transcription, and I got to the end of my freshman year of college... but 2013 is still a good ways away from 2018. 😬
2) Finish editing The Prophecy Keeper and start editing Coca.
Once again, I got through a lot of THE PROPHECY KEEPER, but I didn't finish editing it before I decided to switch over to CUCUY (previously called COCA), which I've been working on ever since. I'm so close to being done with this edit finally, agh!
