Welcome back to school everyone!

Okay, so most people who are going to school have already started, days or weeks ago. But today is my first day of school.

I have to say this has been one of the best, summer vacations I've ever had! Plenty of relaxing, hanging out with different Quaker groups, a little travel, a little bike riding, a little reading. I think I'm ready to go back to school now.

This week I gathered with fellow committee members of iServe to promote our committee and get some new students interested in volunteering. It was a great success and I have a lot of hope for the group this year.

I also tried to advertise iWorld but didn't do so well. I'm sort of taking over the website, but haven't been able to touch it yet...and I'm not sure who all is interested in this committee! It looks like me and maybe a couple others. I've got to get busy and do something with this committee...

In half an hour I head off for a full day of classes. First it's a three hour seminar for the International Development Certificate Program. Then it's an hour brown bag to discuss the IDCP and what it will look like this year. Then it's a three hour LIS class: Instructional and Training Strategies for Information Professionals. I've got descriptions of some of these on my website...which I meant to work on more this summer but just couldn't be bothered. =)

Then I might possibly go to a barbeque after all that! But we'll see. Off to school now...
