Whew. The Longest Day of the Year is Behind Us

Summer Solstice


This week's Booking Through Thursday question:

Since school is out for the summer (in most places, at least), here’s a school-themed question for the week:

1. Do you have any old school books? Did you keep yours from college? Old textbooks from garage sales? Old workbooks from classes gone by?

I've kept my old anatomy and physio books because it's amazing how handy they've been. I rescued a few of my parents college English textbooks because they're wonderful. They actually teach. With examples and everything. (Caveat: I'm certain that none of my sentence structure is condoned in any way. Y'know? lol) I don't think I had an English textbook in school, after gradeschool.

2. How about your old notes, exams, papers? Do you save them? Or have they long since gone to the great Locker-in-the-sky?

Long gone.

Today is the last day of Carl's Once Upon a Time challenge! At midnight, when hopefully I will have fulfilled the terms of my quest. Newonce_2

There will possibly be knitting updates. Someday. If I ever finish anything. Maybe I'll drag out my old UFO's and pretend I just started them. See if you can tell the ancient from the new!

Watch the final episode of Stargate SG1 tomorrow at 8pm on the Sci Fi Channel, if only to confound them for cancelling it. Although, please. The O'ri? B'oring.

Happy Summer Solstice! Spring is sprung.

I've kept all the college textbooks and purchased several more from the bookstore and I still have all my notes—even from high school. But I recently went through some of the notebooks and I'm culling the notes that are of no significance to me (such as the notes from a report we gave on how drugs are bad for you).


College - let's see. That was in the 70s. Uhm. no. To both questions.


I ceremoniously burned all of my high school notes as soon as I finished my final exams, but I kept some of the stuff from college because it was actually interesting stuff that I'd chosen to do!


I kept all my history books from college but not much else. The library science stuff is gone. Well I guess I did transfer some of them to my office, but haven't referred to them once.


I've got some books... I think... We did get rid of a lot of them when we moved last.

I have almost everything book-wise, and most college notes and paper (somewhere). I'm a hoarder, no question about it. Must be why I have those dreams about high school, where I'm tryingto clean out my locker and the books, paper, and random things just grow and grow....


Spring? What's that ;-) It always seems like we go from cold to hot without anything in between!


Carrie- Things are stuck in neutral around here too.
And yes, school is out. It sure is.
You've inspired me to re-read all those Penguin Classics.
