Yesterday evening, fellow MLIS candidate Janet and I took a road trip to downtown Detroit in order to attend the School of Library and Information Science – Annual Recognition Ceremony.

We both had a fabulous time. I thoroughly enjoyed watching my classmates be honored and recognized for their achievements — and was even able to officially meet several other candidates and even a professor with whom I’ve only had the opportunity to chat with via email. I was recognized, with seven others, as a recipient of the H.W. Wilson Scholarship.

We left right at 8:00p and I made it home just shortly before 10:00p. I was completely exhausted, which I attribute to all of the work I’ve been doing in order to finish final projects for this semester, and ended up hardly reading much further in The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston. Hopefully, I can finish the book tonight. We’ll see…

Update (5.9.2012): The School of Library and Information Science uploaded a collection of photos from the event to their Facebook page
