I'm flipping through the newsletter from the Midwest Archives Conference, looking over the info about the annual meeting in April, when I discover the plenary speaker is going to be one of the board members for the OTW and HOLY CRAP NOW I REALLY HAVE TO GO TO THIS CONFERENCE.

Thank you, geeky archivists, for being geeky. (No, wait, she's going to talk about A03? HOLY CRAP I REALLY HAVE TO GO TO THIS CONFERENCE.)

That is all. Well, no, it's not all, I decided this morning I really *am* that stressed, but that is enough for now.

Oh cool. Where in the Midwest?

One of my friends has an MLS with a focus in archives, but she couldn't find a job in the field when she graduated. She might be interested in going to a conference if it's affordable and somewhat nearby.

This conference is going to be in Indy (midwestarchives.org, though it doesn't look like there's a lot of information up yet about the annual meeting). I think conference registration is somewhere around $75-100 for members and non-members. I've only been to one MAC meeting before, but I find them far more affordable than SAA (the national professional org), and I enjoyed myself last time I went.

Ha! Relaxing! I don't know the meaning of the word! *sob*

No, I'm just stressing right now and wish I had time to relax more. Oy. Actually, I should be cooking dinner right now. And calling my aunt. And cooking lunch for tomorrow. And packing up stuff. And--yeah, gotta go. :)

I maaaay declare tonight a Goof Off Night. I should assuage my guilt by telling myself I'll be more productive later after a respite, right? :)
