Peter’s Post

August 24, 2011

Hello Classmates!  I’m excited to get underway in LIBR 240, although Professor Christiansen’s first few e-mails certainly make it appear a little intimidating.  I’m up for the challenge… and for a chance to take a SLIS class with no paper requirement.  My responses to the professor’s questions are as follows:

  1. How many units have you completed toward the MLIS degree?  13 units completed; 9 more this semester.
  2. When do you expect to graduate?  Winter, 2012
  3. What sort of programming/web development experience you have (if any)?  Zero.
  4. A (few) fun factoids about you.  I have been a stay-at-home dad for my two-year old the past few years, compete in bodybuilding shows every once in a while, and just began working part-time at the State of Oregon Law Library.

I look forward to learning about this World Wide Web thing with you all this semester.


Edit: In the words of Jack Nicholson, “Well, here I am, sweetheart.”Putting it all out there...

      Are obnoxious spray tans and speedos acceptable content for this blog? If so…

    Awesome!! Hope you don’t mind me bugging you about my routine sometime! Getting back into the routine after a summer long break dealing moving in to my new house.

    How do you balance it all?

      I’m definitely up to look at your routine and help any way I can!

      It’s definitely tough to balance the diet/training/cardio with family, school, and work. I did a show in July and plan to take some time off (of doing shows) until at least next summer when my SLIS schedule eases up. I am heading down to Lake Tahoe this weekend to watch my 61 year old friend compete.

      Where are you located? Do you have any shows planned?

    Body Building Law Librarian. You should be the coverboy for the SLIS site!

    No Conan the Librarian jokes yet? I guess I’ll get it out of the way.

    Your daughter must love getting underdog pushes from you at the playground.

      Hello Justine,

      I’m a slow learner in the field of advanced swing pushing technique; I’d never heard/seen an underdog push until a few weeks ago. Life hasn’t been the same for my daughter since.

    Always nice to meet a fellow athlete. Good going!
