I'm a grad student
I have started grad work this week. So far, so good. I really like the people I've met. I like my professor. He is teaching both of the classes that I am taking. In fact it is almost the same exact students in the 2 classes. We all go to one class, go out to eat together and then come back to the 2nd class. Almost all of us are new students. Several of us commute from Rochester. Three of us are carpooling together. I am definitely an older student...but luckily not alone. There is another girl my age. She's one of my carpooling buddies.
My professor is very entertaining to listen to. I'm glad because it would be a much loooonnnnggggerrrr day if he wasn't. University of Buffalo is very close to the Canadian border. My professor actually lives in Canada and just commutes every day to the USA where his job is. I think that's interesting.
Right now I am working on wrapping my brain around a whole new language of librarianship. There are a lot of unfamiliar words to learn and understand. I've been reading a lot and need to visit a variety of different libraries and talk to librarians. Then I need to write a 5 page paper on something. (to be determined)
