Thanks Austin, you saved my life...Well, my paper

This post is dedicated to Austin, the nice guy at the UVU Library that helped me find some articles so I could finish my paper on Post Modernity and Zygmunt Bauman... I hear that collective sigh from all of you.. I hear Barb saying, " yeah sweetie, good luck with that."
Well I totally rocked my class presentation on him.. Everyone said... but this paper has to be PERFECT!! I need to pass this class to graduate and I think I'm acing all my other ones...so, this class, Contemporary Social Theory is pretty much the hardest one I have, and I have a lot of hard classes!!
Charlotte.. you're going to be pissed but picture it... I was wearing pink knit beenie, a gray sweatshirt ( inside out) black lounge pants, ankle socks and my navy blue house shoes when I could not find some articles that I printed out the other day.. I was finally on a roll and in the zone about this paper and ARRRGGGGG , Where the capital H were some important papers... I almost cried, but instead, I said, " I'm just going to go to school and go the library..." that's right Charlotte, I was a hot mess in 5 different colors and didn't give a crap.. I went to school like that...ME!! and I NEVER leave the house undone!
The check out desk sent me to the reference desk and that's where I met him.. Austin.. bless his heart, he didn't seem to mind that I looked liked a homeless person, he just wanted to help and he helped... He helped me print out six more resources for my paper and told me where I could find a book by Bauman that the school library carried ( Barnes and Nobles and Borders do not carry books on post modernism and Liquid Modernity for some reason)... I heard the Angels singing... my paper is saved and I am still in the zone.. please bless I don't lose it .. My paper is due at one pm on friday....

( this post was a five minute time out because I PROMISED y'all a post every day for the month of December)

So, to the Utah Valley University Library and to Austin...Thanks for saving my paper, and my blog

ps... there are a lot of cute guys who hang out at the library..why haven't I gone there all semester?????

Library? What's a library?

Charlotte said...

hahahaha... hello? Why would I be pissed? You should see ME right now! I wear AMMON's clothes because I refuse to spend money on clothing I'll only wear for 3 more weeks... however, I must say...black and blue? Oh Honey... we make fun of those people remember?! Lol. I love it. the other day I was out walking around in black sweatpants and an orange zippy...well, lets just say his XL zippy is a lil snug around the middle...I looked a lil interesting to say the least! Especially since his pants are about 3 inches too long for me. Ohhh well... At least you got your stuff done!

Did UVSC change its name to Utah Valley University? Weird...And do they have a new library? Maybe you need to invest some more time there. :) Your husband could be waiting in the non-fiction section letter "K." :)

There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

I am the queen and this is my year, and nothing, NOTHING is impossible
