On Friday, with limited time and on my phone, I was trying to figure out a good meme to represent my mood. I was pouring through my phone, trying to see if I already had something.
No such luck. I decided to go with a song instead, and that took some thinking as well.
I mean, maybe I could have gone with this.
But really, success is embodied by one and only one meme.
But I promised good news with all of this, didn’t I? Well, it’s good news for me anyway. As of today, I am a full-time real professional librarian position. So sure, it’s going to be more work and we’ll see how much it impacts the rest of my life (like the site), but it’s also what I’ve been working towards for almost a decade.
Which, realizing how long I’ve been working in this direction… It reminds me of how I feel like my generation was given the belief that we could do or be anything we want – but not necessarily told how to get from here to there. And it reminds me of how much the economic downturn impacted my generation, and how we have done a lot of hanging onto the jobs we’ve gotten. I suppose taking risks has always been – well, risky – but they’ve seemed particularly risky in recent years.
But it’s all paid off. Yay! So now… to work!
