Oh my goodness, you guys. The last two weeks have rushed past at almost breakneck speed and I’m sorry I didn’t give a Glimpse last week but Stothard demanded my attention. Anyway, the last two weeks were busy in various ways. And the next two months are going to be crazy as I begin to have things come due. I have so much to do! Mostly presentations, I have three coming up. I had my first story workshopped in class and it wasn’t bad. There were all sorts of awesome reviews and suggestions that I can’t wait to apply in my revisions to the story. I wish I could share the story with you but I’m thinking about submitting it to some lit. magazines so we’ll see.
I also learned about popcorn lung disease. Yes, look it up. It exists. And also “deep hanging out” as a viable method of research. Who knew? I shall share the rest of what I have in pictures so…
More commuting pictures. I have to do something in the bus! I am too tired to read. Actually no, I’m afraid that I will fall asleep and miss my stop so I take random pics of the scenery passing by.
My fellow MACLers. Aline, Stephie and Megan who is being snooty and hiding her face. This is during the hour break we get between two three-hour classes.
I wonder how comfortable this top…lingerie masquerading as top(?) is. I didn’t care to find out. And orange chocolate pastry that didn’t taste as good as I remember it tasting. Hm. Pity.
We went to Word on the Street at VPL downtown last week. There was live music (I thought that it was an Irish reel but Megan begged to differ). Elizabeth, an MLIS, hung out with the cool MACLers for the day.
I believe the pictures speak for themselves. Hohoho.
Picture books! In my Contemporary Children’s Lit class, we went over the last 50 years in picture books. I even dreamt about them one night. This one was inspired by a Brazilian folk tale. In the next picture is the book written by the cousin of one of my closest friends. Check it out!
I squealed when I saw the poster. Aaaahhhhh!!! And Yao was fascinated by the live music.
And yes dudes, that is Rachel Hartman reading the prologue from Seraphina! Aaahhhhhhhh!!! I got her to sign a copy of the book that I bought! She’s so lovely in person! I have already extracted a promise from my professor – she’s going to read Seraphina whenever she has a chance. *beam*
And that is all for this week. Next week brings in Leonard Marcus who will give a talk about Maurice Sendak and if you don’t know who that is, well! Shame on you! (Where the Wild Things Are)
