Strength through Unity

Just popping in quickly to recommend this wonderful, thought-provoking comic by Maia Kobabe. I learned a lot about the root of the word “fascism” and have been thinking ever since about the world our children will see as “normal.”

On a related note, you can go here to quickly and easily comment on the FCC’s new rules about net neutrality. It took less than 5 minutes.

I struggle with knowing what to do, how to balance the very real concerns of my daily life with what’s happening in the world. I’m not perfect, but today I spoke out. I hope you do the same.

Adventure On

I’ve always tried to frame my life as an adventure. From the mundane-yet-challenging-with-a-baby (We’re going on an adventure to the grocery store!) to the scary-yet-thrilling (I’m going on an adventure to a third world country!), I try to choose to meet life with an attitude of excitement and anticipation, even when underneath I’m often feeling a lot of conflicting emotions. In truth, I’m feeling a lot of conflicting emotions right now, but oh, the adventure! The adventure! You see, I have accepted a new job as Undergraduate Education Librarian at Indiana University-Bloomington.

It is not easy to think of leaving Paul Smith’s College. This has been a wonderful place to be, for so many reasons. I’ve learned, grown, and gained a tremendous amount from diving head-first into the adventure that was coming here in the first place, not the least of which was gaining a husband and a son. But it is time to find our next adventure and I’m so, so excited to join the incredible faculty of IU. I look forward to the next years, where I hope the adventure continues.
