Happy Hour!

It was really great seeing some familiar faces last night. Thanks Liana for organizing such a successful Happy Hour!

I'm working on a profile form/survey so we can have more information about each alum along with posts.

Open to ideas on what to include ...


I'm still trying to figure out how to get all the "Bryn Mawr Experience" videos listed together in the margin ... so everyone stay with me.

My life after Bryn Mawr

I guess it's my turn. I graduated from BMC in 2005 and since then have earned my MLS (Masters in Library Science) from Indiana University at Bloomington after taking a year off. I'm now currently living at home again with my parents, taking care of our various pets (cat, chinchilla, and megalomaniac beta fish) and looking for part-time work while trying to take care of my health.

3 years after Bryn Mawr ...

Name: Sharmeen
Class: 2004
Major: English
Current Occupation: Contract Associate at Penguin Group (USA), Inc.

So I've tried for a really long time to put together a blog written by Bryn Mawr alums, and so far this site seems to be the easiest way to do that. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get the more interesting alums to sign up to blog.
I guess I should just start a first post, and see if anyone will tag themselves on.
In the three years since I left Bryn Mawr and moved back to New York I have survived an internship with Columbia University Press, got a job with Penguin Group USA Inc, and have moved away from home, back home, and away from home again. I also got to take a nice trip to Disney World with my family which was quite an adventure.
Right now I'm sitting in a class about Blogging for Profitability at NYU. It's really interesting all the stuff that goes into making a blog work for you to bring more revenue or attention.
I also recently got a promotion to Associate, effective on Monday ... which also is the day of my Performance Appraisal ... which is also on my birthday. Pretty good, don't you think?
