Got bored over the weekend and went to the library to pick up some books, movies, and audiobooks.
This was the first time I’ve ever gotten an audiobook. I don’t know why I never thought about it before, but I picked up Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. I had 15 minutes until the library closed and it was the first audiobook that I could see that I had heard of.
So far so good. I’m just kind of amazed by how fast I’m going through it. The audiobook came with 5 discs and at first, I didn’t think I’d be able to get through them, but it’s only Monday and I’m already halfway done. I didn’t realize I spent that much time in my car.
That aside, I am hooked now. I am really loving it because I find myself jumping in the car so excited to hear what happens next. I have a feeling I’ll be picking up more in the near future so what are some of your suggestions?
Telework in my PJs for the next 2 days

Interesting. This is a new era for VT. While I’m looking forward to his contributions, I will ALWAYS have a soft spot for Steger. The memories that stand out in my mind are the comforting words he offered and his leadership after the shootings. Many were quick to point fingers and obviously in hindsight, there were areas which could have been handled better than they were, but given the unimaginable circumstances, I really felt like Steger lead us, or at least for me, he got me to a place of acceptance, peace, and the drive to continue to do good and move forward and that was really life changing at a time when so many of us re-lived the worst day ever for months on end. After experiencing that kind of PTSD, the ability to continue embrace our own lives while still being able to venerate the lives of our friends and professors we lost that day is one I will forever thank President Steger for.
I’m sad to see him go, but excited to see what Sands brings to the table.
