I am finally in all the courses I want to be in!
It involved attending 8 classes last week, but it was worth it in the end, but very nerve wracking, especially when the add/drop form that I filled out on Thursday night did not actually register my course changes until this morning at 10am. I feel sorry for the poor secretary who got all those panicked emails on Friday!
I did not get into the archives conservation and preservation class, but I am ok with that. I attended the first class and discovered that if I actually wanted to do conservation I would have to do a years apprenticeship anyway. If I can't get into the class next time around, I am sure practical workshops will be just as useful.
I was worried about getting into digital libraries class, and while discussing this with a colleague, I remembered that I was 4th on the waiting list for Folktales as well, so I attended that class the next day. The prof said she was fine with having extra people in the class, so I went to our departmental library to email the secretary to let me into the class. There I discovered an email that said that I was enrolled in digital libraries!
So now, instead of not having enough courses, I had too many and had to choose one to drop! My friends convinced me to drop our last required course, Management, because it is compressed this summer, and therefore much more work, and it is a course that will be offered every semester, unlike the others.
So this summer, I have three storytime classes, intro to archives, and digital libraries.
Can we say "Summer or fun"?!!!!!!!
