Alright folks, school is back in session! I am so excited for this new year!

As per usual once the school year has started, I have already gotten behind on the blog. But I am going to try really hard this year not let too much time go by in between posts! The good news is that I will be blogging weekly over at school on the Graduate Ambassador blog. This means that once a week I’ll be posting about the goings on of the Book and Paper Arts department. As soon as I have the official web address for that I’ll let y’all know!

I always love the beginning of a school year and I had this realization yesterday that it was my second to last first day of school ever. How strange time is!

Happy fall everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week so far!

So, the countdown is majorly on folks. At the end of next week I will have completed my first year of graduate school and it will be summertime! In anticipation of all that free time I’m going to have, I’ve been planning summer goals. I’ve really just got two so far. The first is to work through Kieth A. Smith’s Non-Adhesive Binding: Books Without Paste or Glue. The second is to listen to every album on Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of the 1970’s staff list. I’m starting with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and then moving right along to Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush. So, here’s to looking forward to a nice productive break that will be here oh so soon!

Also, finally the weather is sunny and lovely! I hope it sticks!
