So, I've been mildly incommunicado for the past couple of days, ad I thought I'd explain why a little bit.

This weekend has been crazy as shit. And in the best possible way.

On Friday, my coworkers and I all attended a conference for after school program in our state. The workshops were all about things we can do to help the kids we're working with, identifying abuse, helping kids deal with unhealthy relationships, trying to encourage the kids into something more than crime or drugs or that kind of thing. And I was fascinated. There was so much for me to learn, and the workshop on encouraging kids of all ages to read more only solidified my desire to eventually become a librarian. I love books, and seeing how books can be used to help kids made me very happy.

Saturday, I drove with my family to Cedar City which hosts a Shakespearean Festival twice a year. Mostly, the festival is plays and a lot of the ones performed are Shakespeare's. However, their fall season usually has other things in addition to a play by the Bard. So I saw 'Les Miserables' in the afternoon, then had dinner at the Pastry Pub (which is a-MA-zing), and then saw 'Stones in His Pockets' in the evening. And I thoroughly loved all of it. I try to go every year because it's always so fantastic.

Today was pretty much spent driving home, and now I'm curled up in my chair getting ready to catch up on all the lovely fics that have been updated!
