Both sets of my parents have a love/hate relationship with going to the movies. Once they’re there, it’s fine, but the mere thought of spending all of that money tends to put a foul taste in their mouths. A couple of years ago, I didn’t understand this. Going to the movies was fun and totally worth spending however much money my mom or stepmom spent, but now, it’s different. When I go with my friends to the movies, I’m still really excited, but not having parents there to blow the money for me… well, it has dulled the excitement just a bit.
When you’re in high school, sometimes, the only thing you can think about is how it just makes you insane. You want to get out as soon as humanly possible, which I understand. In high school, I enjoyed almost every moment of it… but then there were those times when I could care less whether I flipped burgers or invented the hoverboard. (I have three years left.) And yet, college is even more stressful than its predecessor.
One of the things Mid-Continent Public Library is most proud of is our ability to find you, our customers, anything you need. If it is not readily available through our own resources, then we will move outside our buildings and look nationwide through Interlibrary Loan.
There are few film directors out there that make movies so well it compels me to watch everything they have ever made, but Stanley Kubrick is one of those directors that I would take the time to watch everything he’s done (or at least everything I can get my grubby, little hands on). I took on a “Kubrick Movie Marathon” near the beginning of the month of December, and made my way through almost the entirety of Kubrick’s repertoire of movies.
Have you ever gotten strange looks as you flip through a book? Has anyone ever asked you “are you really reading that or just skimming pages?” Have you ever been accused of owning your own library? If so, you may be a speed reader or simply have a book “problem.” Don’t worry, this isn't a bad diagnoses. But it does mean that you may find yourself with nothing to read and way to many books in your room.
