Good morning, all.

It's 6:15 AM on a Monday morning and I, who in any case never have to be at work until eleven, am wide awake---not happily or cheerfully awake, mind you, but wide awake. I'm the kind of awake where your body is constantly reminding you that you rather need sleep and, at the same time, refusing to let you get it. I woke up at a quarter after four or some such and couldn't get back to sleep.

So, with nothing better to do at the moment, I'm on LJ. I'm also working on my LibraryThing catalog. For those of you who, like me, are obsessed with books, this is a truly wonderful thing. You can create an online catalog of your own personal library. You can compare it with people who have similar books, tag and sort them as you please, get further recommendations, all kinds of fun stuff. You can list up to 200 books for free.

I'm going to meet a friend at 9 to work on some things for my photo exhibit in August. I would probably be thinking about that a lot more if I didn't also have to be thinking about moving 1,000 miles in five weeks (1,600 km for those of you who use a sensible measurement system). I should be excited about going to graduate school. Instead I'm mostly nervous about the move and being completely among strangers. (Of course, I don't have many close friends up here anyway, so I suppose it shouldn't be that different.) (I apologize. I'm prone to be pessimistic and bitter when I'm lacking sleep.)

Oh, news I don't think I've shared here: I will have a teaching assistantship this fall. So not only will I be back in school (after half a decade out) I'll be teaching a college class as well. I do get to have all the fun of teaching remedial freshman comp. but I'll find some way to have fun with it.

On the financial end, this means my tuition will be paid and I will also have a bit of money to live on. (Not a lot of money, but again, that's not that different than what I'm doing now.)

That's awesome about the teaching assistantship. Do they give you any training on how to teach the class or just throw you in there?

When you start school, you will have to post about the stuff you are studying - who you're reading, what classes you're taking. Then again, you'll probably have less time for LJ. :-/
