As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

So I've been a bit bad with keeping up with things. Good news is that I'm almost finished with my last class for my Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences. All I have to do is log in 120 hours this summer and I'll graduate in August. Whoopee!! I'm excited to apply to a ton of places here in the city and see what happens.

To get back on track I need to give a big THANK YOU! to Planet Books for giving me the Friends Award.“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.”

I'll pass this award on to some great blog friends who always make my day with wonderful comments and insanely cool blogs:

Dennis @ Dennis's Diary of Destruction- one cool Vizsla
Andi @ Tripping Toward Lucidity- another cool Library Science student
Bree @ The Things We Read- a fellow student struggling through finals week (I sympathize!)
Nicole @ Linus's Blanket- another New York City reader
Jen @ The Movieholic & Bibliophile's Blog- books and movies...what could be better?
Rhinoa @ Rhinoa's Ramblings- a cool London blogger
Amanda @ Urban Bachelorette- a Brooklyn book blogger
Courtney @ The Public, the Private and Everything In Between- love her writing

Oh, and I have to post a photo of Planet Book's pup Rocky. So adorable, right??
