Welcome to the team! Your area of interest is fascinating. Have you selected a specific area to research already? As someone working on their MLIS, I dabble in social networking (not counting my personal use of such media).

Good luck with your goals!

Yet there was a man within me
Could have risen to the clouds,
Could have touched these winds,
Bent and broken them down,
Could have stood up sharply in the sky.

Welcome to the team!

Hope you made it to the grocery. I confess, I had good intentions to go to the farmer's market yesterday as well - but ultimately, a nap was my higher priority.

Oh well, the fruits and veggies shipped in to my local grocer may not be as good for the environment or the local economy, but they are just as good for me. (Provided I can stay out of the ice cream aisle while I am there)

It's cool that you are studying social networking - I'm doing a research project on that very thing this summer.

You know, when people snicker after finding out that I study new media and social networking and how people basically *bond* over media in online environments, it's kind of sad. Sure, I'm the perfect stereotype of the glued-to-the-computer nerd with no life to them, but that doesn't make it true.

So. For the sake of my effed-up knees and sore feet, for the sake of my wide rear crammed into places it doesn't fit too often, and for the sake of my future job search in an overcrowded market, it's time to lose a hell of a lot of weight.

Also, I'm 29, female, going into my 3rd year of PhD studies, and I desperately need to go grocery shopping because my cupboards are bare and I have nothing to eat, healthy or unhealthy. Hi!

Bonus tragedy: I was too sick this morning (getting over a cold) to go to the local farmers market. WOE.
