Completed some reading over tea. Filomena made a big breakfast of eggs, baked fish and toast. Made the neighborhood rounds: the post office, the public Library, the optical store, the instruction manual factory and back home. Made an appointment for my retirement physical at the instruction manual factory. Returned home and dithered for several hours over my 644 project (Information Literacy). Went to bed early after a long chat with Filomena about themes from The Iceman Cometh.
October 28, 2013.
Rushed home from the Foreign Service Institute’s retirement transition course, Job Search Program, to get an early afternoon start on 551 (Organization of Information) catch up. Boring day at FSI, actually, but the bright spot was the afternoon panel that discussed part-time and intermittent work opportunities. Happy to know I’ll be able to find work in DC as a government contracting officer or as a technical writer as a back-up to a future LIS career!
I went to bed last night late thinking about a Metadata article I had just read, then woke up this morning with all kinds of ideas about aggregating and integrating content on poetry websites I listed on poemsbyray.blogspot.com. A project for another day.
Just uploaded a JING update. All systems on track for completing my online tutorial for Information Literacy by the Thursday due date. More tomorrow. Maybe more tonight.
