Extra-long weekend! My class were only supposed to have the Friday, weekend, and Monday off, which was already pretty generous, but then my professor cancelled class today too. We only had her classes, so another free day!
Granted, The Depress is still happening (despite some promising developments in the not-feeling-terrible field) so I have a nebulous sense of the concept of time itself, but still, extra day. It was nice. Going to be harder to get up tomorrow, but that's what energy drinks are for, yeah? Yeah*.
Major acitivites this weekend: stayed with my step-parents for a couple days, saw Many Dogs (three), hung out with some small children at a playground, took some pictures. I'm getting slowly but noticeably better with the camera part of my camera phone and it's nice to see.
Also notably, got an email back from the library that I'm going to be doing my first work placement in. (My program has three; one this term, two next year.) Director was still friendly, and apparently I'm going to be helping acquire two new branches. It's a regional library, so I guess that's a thing that happens? I don't know what it'll entail, but it sounds interesting, and definitely not what I expected. Tentatively looking forwards to it.
It turns out that the dress code for staff in the library is "business casual" (not semi-formal). Wtf that means I am still essentially unsure, but practically it meant that I went out shopping and got some dress pants / shirts, with my step-mom's advice on what looks/is actually professionally casual. She's been in business for a long time, I trust her judgement. One of the pairs of pants we found is basically skinny jeans but in sleeker non-denim material. They're even plaid! It's an interesting fashion niche.
Found this shirt, too, which I like. May the leopard and/or dalmatian that died for it to be made rest in peace.
Am currently drinking a Slurpee, since it's frozen-pop weather again, contemplating making lunch for tomorrow. Probably will not, but it's a good sign that the intent's there.
(That was actually a trick question there, all weather is frozen-pop weather.)
