Librarians are very smart. They designed card catalogs to fit wine bottles perfectly. Very forward thinking, I’d say.


JEALOUSY!

Student: So are the librarians available on chat or email all the time?
Me: No, we do eventually have to go home to take care of our cats.

Stupid Giddy

I’m having a really fantastic Monday and it’s only 9:32am.

I knocked it out of the park last week instruction-wise. Which is goddamn impressive coming from me because I always find faults with my teaching. But I had all solid moments of having all the answers to the questions asked, saying the things, getting positive reactions, all of it. Finally feeling on really solid ground teaching here.

And this morning I have an email from a student I met at a resource fair that is insanely complimentary saying that she feels more comfortable about starting classes because she now knows she has support. Which is really the only thing I want students to walk away with after a 2 minute welcome with any librarian.

I want to hug someone.

Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart

I went to Comicpalooza this weekend and I was full of nervous energy as I was standing in line to ask Sir Patrick Stewart a question at his panel. I first had to thank him for a speech he had given at amnesty international about domestic violence towards women . I had only seen it a few months ago but I was still dealing with my own personal experience with a similar issue, and I didn’t know what to call it. After seeing Patrick talk so personally about it I finally was able to correctly call it abuse, in my case sexual abuse that was going to quickly turn into physical abuse as well. I didn’t feel guilty or disgusting anymore. I finally didn’t feel responsible for the abuse that was put upon me. I was finally able to start my healing process and to put that part of my life behind me.

After thanking him I asked him "Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in you life (that you are willing to share with us)?". Sir Patrick told us about how he couldn’t protect his mother from abuse in his household growing up and so in her name works with an organization called Refuge for safe houses for women and children to escape from abusive house holds. Sir Patrick Stewart learned only last year that his father had actually been suffering from PTSD after he returned from the military and was never properly treated. In his father’s name he works with an organization called Combat Stress to help those soldiers who are suffering from PTSD.

They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me "My Dear, are you okay?" I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that his mother had done nothing to provoke his father and that even if she had, violence was never, ever a choice a man should make. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked "Do you want a hug?"

Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me "You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now." I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.

Sir Patrick Stewart is an absolute role model for men. He is an amazing man and was so kind and full of heart. I want to let everyone know to please find help if you are in a violent or abusive house hold or relationship. There are organizations and people ready to help. I had countless people after the panel thanking me for sharing the story and asking him those questions. Many said they went through similar things. You are not alone.

I love this man.

No, I’m not crying.

I’m just sobbing.

He really is flawless, isn’t he?
