In retrospect, it probably wasn’t the best idea to choose this week to have the work study students link-check our research pages and subject guides. With all the government websites down, I’ll have to go back through and double check everything once the legislatures gets its act together.

I found this little gem in a study room and it made me laugh. Gosh, I love our students. I mentioned to a student today that I noticed the paper airplane had disappeared. “No problem,” he said, “Just give me a minute and I’ll get a new one up there.” I almost said, “Go for it,” and then I remembered that I’m supposed to be the adult in this situation.

- Literary City Guides looks like a cool project. I can vouch for the Ithaca guide for sure.
- Here’s some real talk about academic life, and darned good life advice to boot.
- And, from the department of random, another laugh for your day.
