For the month of April, I work Tuesdays through Saturdays, so today is my Friday.
Being a #saturdaylibrarian is mostly the same as weekday librarian-ing, except that the Vallejo Farmer’s Market that occurs every Saturday from 9-2 increases foot traffic, as it’s right around the corner from the library, on Georgia street.
This is Ted.
Ted lives just outside the library door, on the City Hall side.
Ted loves unsalted peanuts.
Welp! The work week is over for me…its time to pack it up and drive to Woodbridge to be with my Heart…
I’ve been in therapy with Dr. Susan for 3 years this May. We generally meet (via phone, currently) every other week. When we were able to meet in person, we’d have coffee, and sometimes, the best Hawaiian burger at George’s Giant Hamburger in Walnut Creek.
Susan knows me very well by now, and I am heard and helped every time she and I speak.
She noted that I have CHOSEN not to worry about things that are not in my control. This is a great thing for me as I have generally been an, “I can fix it!” type of person.
“Fixing” things is an asset at work as a Librarian, but I was inclined to take it just a BIT too far, at times.
My regular routines are very good for me and I have little concern about changes I may have to deal with.
I have a full, regular day of work happening here, but I am sleepy. I couldn’t fall asleep last night until nearly midnight, then woke up at 730.
See…I’m not a morning person…never have been.
Before I went back to school to become a librarian, I was a Bartender for a decade.
Now THAT was a great schedule for me!
The only thing that keeps me trying this morning shit is the fact that I LOVE my job.
One of the main things I get to do is Help People find the information they need right now.
Sometimes that’s the location of the latest Mystery, or help with research for a school assignment, often it’s assistance with printing or scanning, and most importantly, it can be directions to the restrooms.
I get to assist with these and SO MANY other informational needs every day and I LIVE for this shit!
So…here I am…ready for bed. Time to curl up with this lovely furbaby:
