Bao as big as my head.
The cocktail hour is upon us.
Multiple people now (including my doctor) have told me I need to slow down a bit, relax. I have no idea how to do this. What do you do to relax?
It kind of depends. In the right circumstances, exercise is more relaxing than watching tv, but other times it's the opposite. Cooking, reading, going thrifting, and doing laundry are all things that i find relaxing, generally. Also, organizing stuff. - Kirsten from Android
Coloring. Sometimes cleaning/organizing. Going out with girlfriends. Reading. Music. - L to tha B from Android
Sleeping. - Uli
Yoga taught me how to relax. - Slippanoia
Knitting! Having lunch on a picnic blanket under a tree for two hours while the sun bakes me. Meditative train rides to work with music. Meditative dish washing chores. :P Naps! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Dolce far niente - the very fact that you ask what people "do" to relax speaks volumes. Exercise and hobbies can be relaxing, but mastering the art of doing nothing may be what you need - Laura Norvig from iPhone
For myself, reading, watching TV, going for a walk in a park, playing video games - whatever lets me 'let go' of doing anything else while I'm doing it. - Jennifer Dittrich
One thing I do is to consciously relax as many muscles as I can. It's surprising how much tension I carry in my face without realizing until I relax. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
What Laura said. Just staring off at nothing is something I'm trying to reclaim. Whiling away time on nothing in particular. And I'm all with Uli on the sleep thing. - MoTO: Team Marina
Learn from a cat? They're pretty good at it. - RepoRat
^^this. Cats are Zen masters. - Corinne L
LB mentioned coloring. Several of my friends were coloring (yes, coloring books) for a while for relaxation. I bought some stained glass and art deco ones at the museum gift shop for a friend. - Betsy
Go Irish!

I was going to test access to a problem e-journal title but then I noticed the .css file for our SerSol was missing again and the page looks horrible and I'm too tired to care right now.

Cringe warning. - Marie from Bookmarklet
imma put a "success desk" sign up at my desk when i go back to work. - holly #ravingfangirl
There's plenty of time to make that sign, now that we don't have stacks to organize. - Marie
THE FUTURE IS NO BOOKS AND NO RIGHT ANGLES. - jambina
Except pointy. We will allow pointy. - Marie
That's at least the third college library to open wihtout any books. The other two? Totally changed their plans. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
"First of all, the university is allowing students to determine how to spend their $60 thousand library budget for e-books? What if a student clicks on a book that turns out to be utterly useless for everyone but that student? I'm not sure whether that's a good idea." <-- so cute I could die - Meg VMeg
it's a wee school, ya? - jambina
After doing a keyword search in a database, I have never seen a false hit that was an interesting alternative path to enlightenment. - Joe
To me, the most interesting line was this: "Old-fashioned books can be requested on loan from libraries at Florida's 11 other public universities." In other words, they wouldn't be doing this if the system weren't already chock-full of the paper books their students might need. And there's no mention of database access, which I'm assuming is coming in through the system as well. $60,000... more... - Kirsten
I think the $60k is just their DDA budget, not their full materials budget - what I love is they've basically said "here's when a purchase is triggered" - anyone want to bet on how fast they run through that $60k? - ellbeecee

Does SMC/ND still make a dog book for the freshmen? Do they still have SYRs?
I have no idea, actually. What I don't know about student life at the two campuses could fill volumes. Is a dog book like a facebook (names and photos)? - Catherine Pellegrino
