Poll of tumblarians about graduation
Did you attend your graduate program’s graduation?
Though I graduated in January, I have the option to walk in the University commencement in May. I asked the librarians who I work with and there was no consensus with their mixed responses.
Go! It’d be lovely to see you =D
i graduated in an October and didn’t go to my ceremony, I kind of regret it tbh. You should go!
Yes, I attended. It was grueling experience. Be prepared for a lot of standing. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring your own water.
But it was also worth it as I made some friends while standing around waiting for the event to actually start.
So there is an open position as an education librarian in my area at a Christian college. Part of the application is describing how your faith has lead to where you are in life and a lot of Christ-affirming things.
I’m curious what other folks think about questions like this in a job application…
If it is a private institution that does not receive support from the government and claims a non-profit, tax-exempt status they can ask these questions.
BUT: I avoid them the world over because they are already closed-minded and that doesn’t seem like the place for a librarian.
If that question is giving you the wiggins, you’re not the right candidate for the school. There are plenty of other lovely religious schools of all faiths to work for if that’s what you want to do.
actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
please confirm German word-making
The German is legit.
This post reminds me of a a story by Aimee Bender in her book The Color Master. It’s all about having trouble remember the proper words for things.
