Today I got up extremely early, got ready, and left my house at 6:20am to spend half the day in the car driving to a conference. What then can I have learned today? Well ...
Today I learned that there are a lot of police cars along all the roads in Indiana! (No, I did not get pulled over, it was an observation.)
Today I learned that Mark Shultz (I think I got his name right), a Christian singer, lives in Chapel Hill, NC because his wife is doing her OB/GYN residency there. (Yes, I know it's random.)
Today I learned that when traffic starts getting heavier the closer you get to Louisville while on 64 West and it's just after 7am, you should move to the left lane as soon as you can. Don't do what I did and sit in it thinking that it's better than jumping lanes. If you don't need to get off at the Waterson, don't sit with the rest of the people who are.
Today I learned that corn season is over. (I was in Indiana!)
Today I learned that it is possible to watch the sun rise in your rear view mirror (and not get into an accident).
Today I learned that I don't like driving on state "highways" for over 100 miles. (Lights, varying speed limits, etc.)
Today I learned that Indiana drivers aren't just slow when you get stuck behind them in other parts of the country, they're slow here too!!!
Today I learned that music librarians are not as eager to do Karaoke as I thought they would have been. (But I did leave the party early, so who knows.)
Today I learned that Notre Dame has a beautiful campus with lots of different shrines all around, and that the Basilica here is gorgeous!!
Today I also learned some library things that I found interesting but that I'm sure no one else will ... so I'll keep that to myself.
Today I learned why I love coming to these conferences!!
Hope everyone had a great day today, too!
