So today is seriously the best day ever! It started off pretty normal, just a work day, I actually had to stay a bit longer because my poor coworker got super sick and had to leave early, After I left, my job called, and it was actually the Deputy Director calling to let me know that I got a promotion! At the library I work in Circulation, and I applied for a Reference position, which is much closer to being a librarian than circ is. I didn't mention that I was applying here because I just wasn't sure I was going to get it. Also, I thought I bombed my interview! It was so short, like 15 minutes short, and while I answered all of their questions, I was just like wow I don't know, maybe I should have talked more. But I got it! I'm just super excited!

After work I had an Cleveland EMP meeting. Tonight we went to the Dittrick Medical Museum at Case Western Reserve University. It was so cool! I don't have any medical background, but I was fascinated by the museum. After the tour we had a Q&A with the curator, and he briefly mentioned the books and archives collection, so when I asked about it, he actually took us into the rare books room. We got to see an anatomy book printed in 1454! We also saw a few other books, one of which was a first edition of Darwin's Origin of Species. I could not contain myself, and asked if they take practicum students, and he said yes! So this is not official but I am going to get in contact with him and my adviser and see if I can actually do my practicum there! See, I told you it was the best day ever.

The EMP meeting doubled as our Halloween party, so I made a quick Lucille Ball costume from clothes around my room. I don't think it really looks too much like her, but I think it has the Lucy "essence" haha.

Have a great Friday! **As usual I am linking up with Passion for Fashion over at Rachel the Hat's blog, go check it out!**


  1. Sounds like you had a great day! Love the dress :) It really does seem like something Lucy would wear!

  2. Congratulations on your promotion! That's SO exciting! And oh my goodness I absolutely love this. It's definitely a Lucy kind of outfit, and that apron is way too cute!
