I’m a single mother of 5: 4 boys and 1 girl. They are the definite focus of my life. I enjoy being involved in my community and school, right now that means I spend a lot of time interning instead of volunteering (although I’m not really sure there is a difference between the two.)
I LOVE to read and do so voraciously. I like a variety of books and am willing to read (or at least start to read) almost anything. When my muse strikes I will sometimes write poetry on a very amateur level. I enjoy book binding and making things with my hands (like quilts) when I have time. At this moment free time is a luxury that does not exist. Just a note on my poetry, it seems that in general I write when I am either very troubled or very happy. I will go long periods of time where I don’t write anything…it seems this is where I am now, I’m happy and busy and while I note ideas for poems it just doesn’t seem extremely urgent to get them out here on the site. I think that is a good thing! 🙂 So while it may seem like I’m in a slump, I really think I am just busy living life.
I am currently attending Pratt Institute’s School of Library and Information Science & School of Art and Design. My aim is to finish school with a dual Master’s degree in Library Science and History of Art & Design, with certificates in Museum Libraries and Archives. My dream is to become a bona fide librarian, hopefully in a special library that deals with art or rare books. I’m lucky to be interning at The Frick Art Reference Library for the Summer 2012 which feeds both of those passions. 🙂
On the fluff side of things, I like to go spinning and swim to clear my mind. I love all things pink, wish I had more fashion sense or money…not sure but I think that is a chicken and egg sort of thing, I adore shoes and love birds.
I’m also sort of a gamer girl geek in that I played WoW for 6 years and then moved on to SWTOR. While not geek related it is last but not least: I LOVE chocolate!!
