Bullies…a word to the wise

So as I am home feeling sick as a dog (what an odd expression…I’ve never seen a really sick dog that equivocates the physical expressions/manifestations of how I’m feeling when I’m sick as said dog….seriously though, I hope this is the last cold this year – I’ve been practically plagued with them!), I came across this clip from none other than the king of childhood nerds, Will Wheaton!

Those of you who don’t know him by name, he was the child of the good Dr. Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and from there went on to doing numerous equally nerdy endeavours in his adult career. Anywho, here he is at the Denver Comicon last summer and all I can say is kudos to him. What an answer! And I know we’re all older than this girl who posed the question, but bullies never really go away entirely, they pop up time and again throughout our lives, but how we deal with them and how we allow them to affect us changes as we grow. And so, without further ado…

In the Jungle?

A change in pace….musical interlude, anyone?

Heya peoples!  How’s life?  Good, I trust?  Just figured I’d drop you a line and see what’s what in the world of you =)

Soo, it’s just about March – already a month in to second semester!  Wow, time sure does fly, huh?  I just realized yesterday that the Oscars are coming up – this Sunday (March 2), should be for an interesting show…we’ll see if poor Leo finally gets his Oscar!  Has anyone seen any of the other flicks up for nomination?  I’m kinda assuming that 12 Years a Slave is walking away with Best Movie, but we shall see!  It seems like another given is Best Song, and it would seem that that particular title is likely going to Frozen’s “Let it Go” (personally, I quite enjoy this cover).

Annnnnywho, I recently came across this little gem and loved it so much I wanted to share it with you!!

Some Monty for ye…

spark of vivacity175 Photo Heya peoples! So the second week (or third, in some cases) is already half-through. I know we’ve been getting already quite a few people coming in to find books for projects and ISU’s….

Here’s a friendly reminder for you, while I would agree with the statement that the library has everything you need to do you school assignments, we don’t necessarily have all those items the day you come in looking for them! Remember to give yourself some time to gather your resources…it usually takes the library 2-5 days to have items brought in from other branches. So procrastinate if you must, just be sure to have all your materials ready to go for when you are.

Does that sound too hokey? Meh. Let’s lighten the load. I present to you (drum roll….)

Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

heehee, yeah. It’s actually a flick that was made in 1975 with a rather pathetic budget….for a bit of a better idea of what kind of humour you’re getting into here, clickety click. And for the flick itself, well you’ve got a option A or option B

So, I hear you’re back at school..

Heya buckos!  So, back to school again, huh?  Wowzer, does time fly – summer is already gone and we’re about to start welcoming in that lovely season people often refer to as ‘fall’…or crazy-glorious-leaf-colour-changing-awesomeness-time, as I like to call it  =P

chuckle, chuckle.
Seriously people, if you can’t laugh at yourself….well, if you don’t know the saying, never mind then.

Annnnywho, so how’d the first day of class go??  Niners, everyone had their shoes all shined up nicely for first day of high school?  Anyone get lost?

And you old timer’s, we’ve got some people doing their final lap – happy university/college hunting!  A word of wisdom, if you want to think of it as such – going to an out-of-town school and moving out of the folks’ place was one of the best things ever.  You really get quite the jump start by being out in the world and not have mum and dad as easy access security blankets.

That said, to each their own!

Ok, so things are getting busy right away, teachers handing out homework right from the get go and assigning projects…remember to come by and ask us for some help getting yourself organized and going when you need to start cracking down on school stuff.

And for those of you who are starting to think about doing volunteer work, we’ve got tons of volunteer programs for you here!

And because you should always have music…Avicii!
