My day in gifs —- Friday #HLSDITL
I usually do not work on Fridays… so, Fridays are either
It is important to have a balance of both!
This weekend I’m adventuring about Athens, Greece. On some normal weeks (not fall breaks) I also jump to another country for a quick visit. The first weekend of November is Amsterdam. The school has a trip to Rome the second week… but the third… the third I SLEEP.

My day in gifs —- Thursday #HLSDITL
We’re currently on fall break, but I’ve queued up posts from last week (October 20-24). In current time I’m visiting Athens!
Went to work. Been spending 12 hours at the library for midterm week. So. Tired. Just stared at my computer for awhile.
Got pizza for lunch! And dinner!
Walked in and the guy knew I wanted a caprese pizza before I even asked for it in my awful Italian
A mob of students came in to print final papers, readings, and all their plane and train tickets before the fall break. The printer kept printing the first 17 out of 20 pages of one student’s art history reading.
Said goodbye to students and told them to have a fantastic time on the break!
15 minutes before the start of fall break and after a very long midterm work week for me a student asked if we’d be open tomorrow
Packed for my 10 day fall break trip! All in one backpack!
Had my first Google Hangout meeting with the OA Button team!

My day in gifs —- Wednesday #HLSDITL
We’re currently on fall break, but I’ve queued up posts from last week (October 20-24). In current time I’m visiting Rome, particularly the Villa Borghese because today is my birthday!
Opened the library and no students came for the first hour, so morning solo DANCE PARTY
Student came in and asked if she could borrow the reference dictionary that no one ever looks at for exam
Got gelato after Italian class
Did some more work
No students were in the library at 8:15, so I got to go home! (Normally work until 7, but we were open as late as 9 for midterms)
Went home and carved my pumpkin!

My day in gifs —- Tuesday #HLSDITL
We’re currently on fall break, but I’ve queued up posts from last week (October 20-24). In current time I’m visiting Rome!
Arrived to work at 9AM and there was a staircase full of students waiting to print out their midterm papers for the Art History class
A student saw the OA Week poster on the door and asked what it was
Figured out how to solve a computer problem for a secret project I’m working on
A student assistant asked if the marks on the library use tracking sheet were nutella fingerprints from me
A student who never comes to the library came by during midterms!
Had the library open 9-9 yesterday, today, and again tomorrow. Exhausted.

My day in gifs —- Monday #HLSDITL
I’m currently on fall break, but I’ve queued up posts from last week (October 20-24). In current time I’m visiting Berlin!
Woke up at 4AM to a loud crashing sound. Was TERRIFIED. We were having a bad thunderstorm in Florence and it knocked my window open against the kitchen’s tiled walled. Took an hour before I could fall back asleep.
Arrived at work full of cheer. It is OA Week and like work Christmas!
Then did some work
Ate lunch at my desk
Fixed repeated printer jams and errors. Course it just messed up again.
A student asked me to proofread her art history paper.
Just kidding. I read the paper and marked it up.
Blinked a lot for the last hour of work. So sleepy.

This week is #HLSDITL! If you’re a current library school student, click here and join! I’m currently finishing up my MLIS through a year long practicum as the Library Supervisor at the Florida State University Florence Study Center where I work full time Sunday-Thursday. We’re currently on fall break, but I’ve queued up posts from last week (October 20-24). In current time I’m visiting Berlin and attending the Berlin Zine Fest!
Woke up. I was planning to go visit a museum in the morning before work in the afternoon, but my body was like
Went to work
As I’m printing out OA Week materials the printer runs out of colored ink and after replacing the ink it decides not to print anything anymore ever at all
Finally got most of it printed and decorated the library!

My day in gifs — Friday #HLSDITL
Went to my internship this morning, did internet things that involved books and spreadsheets and science holidays
Did my first social media posts for Penny4NASA, check it out: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr.
Went to work at the FSU library. More internet! More typing! A lot less books which you may not have expected from a library job
Got very irritated at a spreadsheet when the boxes wouldn’t fit the way I wanted
After work I put off a nap I desperately wanted to make dinner and create this post
Preview of the weekend:
And that concludes Hack Library School’s Library Student Day in the Life. It was so great getting to follow other students this week and learn more about what you do! I was pretty busy and didn’t get to read many detailed posts, but I’m going to use a chunk of my Saturday for that.

It was cold this morning :(
Okay maybe not that cold. But there was a bit of ice on my windsheid! Since I’m a Floridian, I didn’t have an ice scraper and had to use a spatula.
When I arrived to work I discovered the smoke alarm battery was dying and the alarm was chirping. It did this all day. All 6 hours I was at my desk.
After Copyright class I had lunch with some FGCU Honors friends who are in town!
Went back to work
After work I worked on the second draft of a cover letter for an amazing fellowship. Then started freaking out about getting a job after graduation in August
Bring it on.
Then I had my online Grant Writing class 8-10. I don’t have a gif for that, but here is a panda

It has been a cold day in the library, but I keep a pac-man snuggie at my desk.
