Happy Memorial Day!!!
My last post was April 1! Wow. Time has really flown. Been busy at work trying to wrap up. I should be excited about summer vacation beginning in 2 days but I can't. I signed up to work summer school! I know. I know. What the hell was I thinking? But I have good reasons.
My regular workday is so hectic and filled with constant interruptions that I can barely get my work done. My library is used by everybody for everything without any thought of what my plans are. So working the extra month, with pay, will give me much needed time to get caught up. I can shift my books and re-label the shelves. Things that need to be done.
Now had I been able to get these things done before school was out, I would not mind another librarian coming to work in my space. But I have a nemesis who wants my job. With her having 33 years experience, she would have been able to work in my library for the summer. I was not going to give her the satisfaction of working in my new library and jack it up while I'm gone!
I am also trying to make provisions for my future endeavors. Giving up a month of vacation my give me just the time I need to prepare for my passion. I am about to read Chris Gardner's new book, Start Where You Are. I need a little fire to be lit under my feet. I have been inspired by his story and love watching his video interviews!
