-Getting settled in my new home after buying my first house and all the work that goes along with it
-Graduating with my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science
-Starting my first full-time job and adjusting to a new schedule and workload
-Planning my wedding (that is exactly one month from today!)
Pretty good excuses, right? Yeah, I thought so too. So between all that going on and trying to, I don't know ... do the dishes, sleep, have a social life, complain about how busy I am, etc. ... I just didn't have any energy to blog in my very limited "free" time. But now that I have some big news to share, I figured I'd better get back to blogging, and more consistent blogging at that!
Drum roll, please ...
I'm incredibly excited for this new position, and while I wish I wasn't beginning a new job two and a half weeks before my wedding (help!), I can't wait to get started! The past three years at Community Library have been very foundational in my librarianship career. It's pretty cool knowing that my first library job, and my first full-time job both happened to be at the same library that I grew up going to as a kid. There's also the fact that I've gotten to meet some awesome and interesting people while working there. I look forward to moving to a larger library that serves a more diverse population — not to mention higher pay and better benefits — including the fact I will be moving to a library where the entire second floor is dedicated to the children's area!
That's all for now! Wedding crunch mode is officially underway. So don't expect another blog post until September once I'm back from my honeymoon in Bali — but then hopefully more regular posts after that. Until next time, readers!
