Now Beto is in play. It’s definitely a very full ticket.

There's a piano upstairs that plays music almost every night. I really like it. I kind of wish I played piano instead of clarinet as a child.

Alexander McCall Smith has started a new series, about a Swedish detective. The full-length book isn’t out yet, but a Kindle single is. It seems pretty good. And I won a Susan Mallery book (also not out yet) in a Goodreads giveaway.

So I'm applying to library school. It will take 18 months, starting in October. I felt weird contacting professors from 20 years ago for recommendations. They did write recommendations for me before, back in 2000, for law school. So hopefully they will remember me and be willing to write again. I mentioned what classes I took with them and when, and my honors thesis (one of them was my thesis advisor). So I'm slightly anxious about that (but who knows, maybe they still have the old recommendations on file) and I have to write a personal statement (500 words, and my notes are 154 words). But these are all surmountable problems. I'm mostly excited - a job I won't hate!

P.S. Both professors got back to me on the same day. So I was worried about nothing.

I’m not sure how I feel about Bernie running again. I want Amy Klobuchar to win. (As a fun aside, she follows me on Twitter.)

I finished I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella and now I have nothing good to read :(

The food at thanksgiving was really good. My sister brought puff pastry tarts with Brie and jam. I also had root vegetables and potato salad (vinaigrette dressing instead of mayonnaise).
