Belated Obligatory New Year Post

Hello fair readers!

Happy belated 2010 to you!

omg it flashes!

Yay, flashing clipart! Classy!

I thought I would do what I should be doing on my  blog, which is obviously making lists of all things 2009-ish…just two weeks after everyone else is doing it. That’s how I roll! Behind the moment, am I right?

So here are a couple things that I totally and completely fell in love with over the past year:

Anything related to robots

Seriously, look how adorable my twitter wallpaper is. Bling! But really anything dealing with robots. Like this song:

fourfour

By far my favorite blog of the year. Ever read Jezebel? He is the one dude who blogs for Jezebel. My favorite posts are generally reality show episode recaps, particularly for Jersey Shore and America’s Next Top Model. And he’s kinda known for his hilarious animated gifs, truly an art form in his case…voila:

this should be in the moma

Various Design Blogs

I’m not sure when the design blog scene blew up but omg, there are so many good ones out there to inspire and remind you how severely out of date your actual real life apartment is. I love them and have used them to figure out what colors to paint in my new apartment, what type of furniture I might want to look into purchasing once I am not quite so poor, and what type of wedding I will plan when I actual getting around to that whole getting engaged thing. God bless you design blogs and all your dream making. My favs: Design Sponge, Wide Open Spaces and Once Wed

Summer Hours

I loved this movie. I loved this movie in a way that I forgot I could love movies. It was subtle and interesting and beautiful and well made and well written and well acted and just about perfection. It was happy and sad. It was beautiful and tragic. Mostly it was just a really fascinating view into the relationships of one family and really all families. I couldn’t recommend it more.

The Mighty Boosh

Just watch this

Now immediately go rent every season and fall into a Boosh-y daze of wonderfulness.

Last but not least…

Anyone who in anyway has helped/particpated/fostered the Young Librarian Series

Seriously, you know who you are. But just in case let me thank the following people: Erika Earp, Andy Woodworth, Sarah Schmidt, Melissa Fortson, Justin Hoekne, Mike Campagna, Adam Girard, Kit Ward-Crixell, Mandy Knapp, Amy Pelman, Sesheta, Carrie Straka, Tinamarie Vella, Victoria Vanlandingham, Laura Wimberley, Anthony Molaro, Molly Kelly, Steve Thomas and most most importantly the folks over at our parent website Tame the Web: Michael Stephens, Kyle Jones, Mikael Jacobsen, Katharine Johnson and Lee Leblanc for continued support and inspiration. You have all helped in some small or insanely large way to make the YLS happen this year and I am forever thankful for that <3 What do they say about the wisdom of crowds again? Oh yeah…we should listen. :)

Well that’s about it. Have a lovely new year, fair readers. Here’s to 2009.

Cheers!

Contemplating 2009

Hello fair readers!

I hope you had a lovely New Year’s celebration!

I’ve been thinking about New Year’s Resolutions and what I’ll be focusing my next year on. I’ve always found it better to make goals for myself, being the task-oriented librarian that I am.

So here it goes, Leah the Librarian’s New Year’s Resolutions are as follows:

1. Be nicer to people

I have a great tendency to be judgey and negative. I will try very hard to think of things in terms of being less negative and just nicer.  For the most part, I consider myself a fairly nice person but I surely could use some improvement in this department.

2. Start that other blog you have been talking about starting for ages.

That’s right, I have an idea for another blog.  One that will be anonymous (maybe) and more focused.  Less of a life blog and more of a blog with a purpose.  The problem is…how to advertise it when if it will be anonymous.  Something to ponder.  Also, most think of clever name!

3. Get financially organized.

Seriously…time to become an adult and learn to spend and more importantly *save* like an adult.  Less take out…more cooking.  Less frivolous spending, more frivolous saving.

Three seems like a nice, achievable number…right?  I think so too.

I hope your New Year is going splendidly thus far fair readers.  And have a lovely weekend.
