Let me introduce myself. I'm a wife and a mother by choice and an archivist and an librarian by training. I've been married for 13 years to a wonderful man who has taught me that marriage is the hardest job I will ever love. I'm the mother of five children who bring me so much joy--I tell them all the time that I firmly believe that G-d handpicked each one of them and placed them in my life.

I'm an archivist and reference librarian at a small Catholic university in an even smaller community. Besides this blog, I maintain two professional blogs: Curious Child's Library Wanderings and Archival Wanderings. I truly enjoy my job although it can be a little tedious at times. Contrary to what many people believe, librarians do not just sit around reading books and shushing people. In an academic library, we serve as liaisons to the various academic departments and work closely with the faculty to make sure that we offer the best support we can to the students. We also have to be a jack-of-all-trades and fix equipment, as well as keep current on emerging trends in technology and information services.

Yesterday afternoon I found out that I have been approved to teach American History 104 through our Expressway Program at the University. I'm very excited. This is the first time that I will be teaching a history course. It's a 5 week long program that covers the period from 1865 to the present (my favorite time periods, so much was happening). We will be reading The Jungle by Upton Sinclair as part of the course so I'm looking forward to some interesting discussions. I think it'll be fun.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
