Today I spent the day in the library collecting resources for my research. I saved everything to my jump drive and thought I’d go to an office store after the library to get the articles printed (the library cost $.15 a page and the office store is $.05). I looked at the websites for Office Max and Staples and chose Staples because it looked like it was cheaper and it  [ Read More ]

SLA2008: Keeping Found Things Found

For the last presentation of my first SLA, I got to hear William Jones author of Keeping Found Things Found talk about Personal Information Management (PIM). William decided to change the title of his talk – and made us all giggle “The world is at my doorstep … and the house is a mess: putting our information in its place in a digital age.” When William talks about the world,  [ Read More ]

Finance about overlooked tax deductions. One example: 4. Student loan interest paid by Mom and Dad. Until recently, if parents paid back a student loan incurred by their children, no one got a tax break. To get  [ Read More ]

Like to file your taxes early?

Well, Nikki at the Jenkins Law Library has a great tip to save you some headaches.

Darlene Fichter added a new quote to her Facebook page – and I just love it!!! If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less. — General Eric Shinseki, Chief of Staff, U.S. Army Awesome!

My Change Mantra

We all talk about change, but what encourages you to push through the pain and fear associated with change? I have a song by the Indigo Girls that got me through a lot of tough times when I was younger and has stuck with me through the years. The song is The Wood Song. I want to share it with you. the thin horizon of a plan is almost clear  [ Read More ]
