The spring of our discontent*

*Well, not so much "discontent," really, as just a lot going on!

Here's my schedule for the next few months. Sadly, I can't really delegate any of it. I know this isn't terribly busy by some of your standards, but it is for me. I don't think I've ever had so many meetings to travel to so close together.

This week:
  • instruction session for first-year seminar students tomorrow in Special Collections. They'll be back as a class a few more times, and some of them may return on their own to work on projects. No idea yet what said projects will involve.
  • meeting of the Society of Georgia Archivists' Nominating Committee in Atlanta.
Next week:
  • Management meeting off-campus.
  • Meeting of the Georgia Baptist Historical Society in Special Collections (I get to host and give a paper).
  • Donor and person from alumni office coming to visit.
  • Fly to Wisconsin for a few days of vacation.
Mid-April:
  • Travel to Florida (not near the beach; boo) for the meeting of the Florida Baptist Historical Society. Give same paper as at Georgia meeting. (At some point finish editing paper for publication.)
Early June:
  • Travel to Nashville for the meeting of the Association of Librarians and Archivists at Baptist Institutions (ALABI). Present on "user-centered archives" with one of our researchers.
  • Travel from Nashville to Huntsville for the Baptist History and Heritage Society meeting (no responsibilities . . . yet).
Ongoing:
  • Springtime academic events - Honors Day, Baccalaureate, Commencement, etc.
It's nice to see all those things listed in one place. I suppose I can tackle them the same way one eats an elephant!

And how about you? What's going on in your world?
