You know what happens when you are supposed to get something done on a certain day? You run out of time. This is my life this week. I have been struggling to write a rough draft of an essay that is due tomorrow for class, and so I procrastinated. Yep, that’s what I do when I’m stressed or has writer’s block. I procrastinate.
So, what is it that I had to write about, you ask? Well, that’s a fantastic question because I don’t really know. The directions given by the professor were very vague. We were suppose to choose three articles that he has furnished in the last four weeks and write a three page thinking paper over the topic.
Huh? I know it doesn’t sound that complicated to most people, but honestly the rubric wasn’t any help and there were other classmates that were confused. I glad I’m not the only one.
Since I spent all week trying to hash out what to put in this paper, I am behind on everything else I have to do this week, including writing my blog. But on the bright side, I did come up with a pretty decent rough draft and 4:30 this morning. It meets the maximum number of pages, and the topic is something that has been puzzling me since reading the complicated article on RDA (Resource Description & Access) and FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) which is a way to classify certain types of items within the bibliographic universe.
I seriously sorry if I put anyone to sleep with that last phrase. It was long, detailed, and far more complicated than it should be. Which is honestly how I feel when trying to write about it. I love learning about library stuff, (that is why I’m studying to be a librarian), but I also want to adopt the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) policy on anything that is more complicated than necessary. This would have to include anything related to RDA and FRBR.
Anyways, now I’m preparing to go to class for the weekend, (yes, even I have to attend a class every once and a while), and I’m hoping that during the discussion this weekend there will be that heavenly light that shines down on me and graces me with the understanding and wisdom I need to survive this class.
I hope everyone has a great week! Hopefully by next week I will be better organized and not so busy.
