Welp. I got the job. And they're gonna start me on more than what I asked for in the interview, so that's pretty awesome.

And I put in my notice at my current job this morning, so it's a done deal. I wound up having to e-mail my resignation letter to my boss, which I hate because I was going to tell him today in person, but he e-mailed everyone this morning saying he was going to be out for the day. And he's not going to be in next week either, so that's just how it all worked out.

So, um.

Oop.

I feel kind of bad for leaving, but I really think this is a step in the right direction. I also feel like my life's basically just been buffering for the last year and now it's about to actually start moving again, like soon I'll be back to working toward something instead of just working to pay off loans. And that feels pretty good.

So I had a job interview today, and I actually think it went pretty well. I mean, I consider any interview where my mouth doesn't dry out and my voice doesn't shake as a success, but I think I have a good shot at this one. I'd be working with a research library as an administrative assistant, so I'm not actually working in circulation or helping people do research (which is what I'm most interested in), but I'd still be learning a lot about what all goes into a library's budget and working with the ARL and how libraries coordinate with each other/local museums to put together exhibits/educational programs and stuff like that, so I definitely think it'd be worth my while.

Plus the interviewer mentioned that some MLIS students use their work experience for course credit, so if this works out, I could already start working toward my master's (sort of).

And worse case scenario, I don't get it and I get to keep my current job (which has shit pay, but is still full-time with benefits, so I can't complain too much). And then I won't have to have the always painfully awkward "I'm leaving, here's my two weeks" conversation with my boss. So, uh... There's that if nothing else, I guess.

But yeah. That's me right now.

Obviously I haven't been updating this very much, and I guess this is just a post acknowledging that. I'm still keeping this journal for comms though, so uh.

Yeah.

I'm somewhat active on tumblr, though, so if you want, you can find me here. :D

If your pet had thumbs, what would it do?


I have no clue, but this question is making me laugh really hard for some reason.

Have you ever met anyone famous?


Tara Lipinski when I was ten/eleven-ish. She had this sort of skating class for young ice skaters in Nashville, and I got to go with a few of the girls in my skating class. She said I did a good job on one of my jumps (can't remember what kind it was, tbh), but that was about it. She's really sweet, tho.

btw, hi livejournal. I'm still alive, I promise.
