Those of you who know me well know that I’m having a hell of a hard time. Or, more aptly, someone very close to me is. This explains my infrequent blog posts and totally unpredictable moods. I recently had to take a bunch of days off of work to tend to family issues (sorry that I’m being intentionally vague) and I was nervous about going back to the library. I don’t trust my current state of mind and I feel overly emotional and fragile.
Luckily, I was welcomed back to work by boxes and boxes of Rainbow List books. OMGosh. So many books! So exciting! In addition, I received a magical mystery gift from (I think) one of the ALA Think Tankers.
Though I was totally freaked about going back to work, I’m glad I did. Work, strangely enough, is good for my spirits. I have nice coworkers who bake me cakes (and happen to be kick ass librarians to boot), tons of Rainbow List reading material to keep my mind occupied, and, occasionally, someone from ALA Think Tank sends me something wonderful and bizarre (not pictured: the infamous banana slicer). Seriously, whoever sent me the Sanrio pin and postcard, thank you so much. It really turned my morning around.
I’ve always depended on the kindness of librarians.
