Where has the time gone?

You asked for it, so here it is. A brand new post. Exciting, isn't it?

Let's see, my last post was right before my bat mitzvah. It was a good day. There were a few complications, but when you have six people doing a service like that, it gets complicated. It was good, though. And my Hebrew was flawless, much to my own amazement!

Then life was boring. That's a big reason for the lack of posting. There were a few highlights: I discovered a new musician, Regina Spektor. She may not be new for some of you, but I had never heard of her until a friend gave me a CD. Highlight #2 feeds my couch potato inclination. One of the students gave me a website for tv on the web, TV Links. It's a British site, but it has mostly American tv shows. My favorite part, however, is that it has both seasons of the new Dr. Who, so I spent my winter vacation watching Dr. Who on my computer.

I spent New Year's Eve playing board games with my mother and watching Anderson Cooper on CNN. Happy New Year's to you all, by the way!

2007 started off much like 2006 ended, boring. Then on Jan. 5, one of my co-workers got hit by a car coming into work. She suffered minor injuries, but we were all dumb-founded. She will be off work for 6-8 weeks. She broke her fibula in two places, tore a ligament in her knee and had to have surgery. So, if you have the need to cross a street, watch for speeding cars!

It gets even more interesting, as this week I was offered a new job and yesterday I accepted. I will be working at Miami University in the Amos Music Library. I'm excited, but I'm depressed to be leaving the people I work with now. It's funny how I'm not thinking about the reasons I want to leave; I can only think of the things I will miss. I don't start my new job for another month, so I'm sure I'll remember why I wanted to leave before this month is up. And it's a wonderful opportunity. I'll get to work in a music library! When I was a music major at Ball State, we didn't have a music library. It will be fun to be around music students instead of health sciences students!

So that's my life at this moment.
