In last week's post I described a few sites to visit off-campus, so today I thought I would share a little about one of my favorite sites on-campus: Thompson Library! (aka-The Main Library). This gem is located right at the heart of campus, just a five to ten minute walk from Gerlach Hall. One of the most iconic buildings at Ohio State, Thompson offers an array of services. First and foremost of course is the extensive archive.
Books hold a special place in my heart. Wait - let me clarify, books that are not textbooks hold a special place in my heart.
This is what I plan to do with my winter vacation: 1) Read. But for fun. Yes, I am a dork. a) I'll be re-reading "The Alchemist", as I tend to do once or twice a year to remind myself of my personal legend and that I'm on the right track.
I think I just had an epiphany. A moment of solitudinal (and I think I totally made that word up) reflection of some sort.
Some things I'm thankful for: After buying/ordering all the books for Winter Quarter, I added up everything... and was thrilled that the total was only $188.07... About a third of what Autumn Quarter was! I made it through a week-long road trip and nearly two weeks with the family over winter break without any mishaps. Christmas with my extended family was relaxing, and everyone enjoyed their gifts.
