I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Library Class is Monday, January 24th

Just a reminder that unless Lindenwood cancels classes due to weather, we will meet at Butler Library for our extra class. Bring everything you need to start doing research (a flash drive is a good idea if you have one).

We will at the front desk at 6 p.m.

Class Announcements

I am keeping an eye on the weather. Lindenwood will announce it on the news if they cancel our class, so be sure to check before you leave. If so, I will try to schedule us a room for Thursday night.

Right now, it looks like it won't start until after class has concluded, so stay tuned.
