ALA was awesome. I should have done a post or 12 about it. I learned a lot, met a lot of people, realized there is SO MUCH for librarians out there and we are doing some really amazing work out there in the world.
In selfish news: I have a job.
I’m a Children’s Librarian! MY DREAM JOB.
It’s an exciting time – but I had to, got to?, move. I’m now a Clevelander.
I’m exactly 3 hours from where I was living in Metro Detroit.
2.5 hours from Ann Arbor.
4 hours from Kalamazoo.
4 hours from Oxford, OH.
and I couldn’t be more excited.
I’ve been exploring the Cleveland Metroparks during my first week living in Ohio for the second time. It’s gorgeous here. As someone who has moved around for college and work opportunities, I know that it takes time to really acclimate to a place and I know this may not be my “forever” home. But being here, in the Cleveland area, feels like home. I know I could be happy living the rest of my life here and for that I’m grateful that I not only have the job I could be in for good, but a place I could live in for good.
Updates as I can and life as a first – year newbie librarian. Also, I have no Internet at the moment (issues I won’t get into) so posting is sporadic as usual.
Work starts Monday. Cheers!
