I think hair wise I’m on my way to becoming a famous entomologist. Compare me bellow (from a foray in Ithaca, NY in spring of 2009) and titan Matsuda (on the left).
On a different note.
Cornell has a far better library then KU. In fact, I must say, Cornell’s library system was god-like. Although I must admit that there’s a 40 page limit PDF service here, where they’ll scan and PDF up to 40 pages. This is helpful when you consider my building is a 30 minute walk to campus.
It’s funny, when I interlibrary loan here at KU, most of the material comes from good old Mann Library at Cornell.
There was talk of disbanning the Cornell Entomology Library. This is sad and just shows the global disappreciation for natural sciences. After all, who cares about ants and stuff anyways. I remember the ent-library being a place where I greated familiar faces. Whether it be ent-club folks or fellow staph gurue Rick. I wouldn’t say it was a quiet library, definately an active research library with lively “hellos”.
Anyways – because of Cornell’s superior online subscriptions, I’ve been taking advantage of the lag between my graduating and my Cornell network account to get shut off; downloading papers through Cornell. Yesterday, sadly, this came to an end and my account was closed off. I feel like I’ve finally graduated…
I hate Facebook but nostalgia brought me back, after I lost my Cornell network access, and I browsed some photos, especially of this summer. Good times were had by all…
