1. Journals, Academic

On occasion, I read something, and I am so moved by it that I have to share. You know, like when you are reading the New Yorker - and you see a comic that you JUST KNOW will delight a friend - and you scan it and send it to them. They respond that it was just the most perfect and funny cartoon they have ever seen. OK. Right now - capture that feeling of euphoria! Make a note of that good

3. Memes, Creating

Because there wasn't one that quite fit me, I was forced to create on myself.It has always been a joke among my librarian friends that everyone thinks we sit at work and read all day long. The truth is, we do not. I would have never imagined that I would be providing technology instruction for senior citizens, doing a story hour (!!!) with little kids, or organizing programming for a Museum.

Sometimes, at the end of a very busy week - its good to just relax.Having a supervisor who pushes you to do your very best is beneficial, and exciting. However, by Friday I am tired.Moral of this blog : Tired can be hot too.

7. Interns, On having

Once upon a time, I wrote a list of things that were important for shadows to know. I thought that I had really nailed it then, but in hind sight - I've learned that there is something even better than a shadow. Interns.I like having interns.These eager folks volunteer (at least here) for up to 40 hours a week. I sort of can't imagine what life was like without them. I used to think having an

9. Ties, Short

Why does a librarian need to take a 2 year break? To bring back the short tie, of course. Apparently, a big knot and a short tie are quite controversial. People stop me. "Did you tie your tie wrong?""Did you know your tie is short?" "Is that a childs tie?"And to answer them:"No, it is just how I want it""Yes, I tied it this way, just this morning while I was getting dressed"and"No, it's a

11. People, Cat

I would be remiss to suggest that all librarians are cat people. I'm sure there are plenty of librarians out there who have dogs. Or parrots. Or goldfish. Or gerbils. Or all of the above.But it seems that librarians tend to be cat people.Why is this? Perhaps its because of their independent nature, their curiosity, and aloof devotion that makes them the perfect sidekick for a librarian.At

12. Tough Subjects, Dealing with

So, on a daily basis I deal with a really tough topic. Not only do I see people cry almost every single day, but often times I provide people with death dates of lost love ones, provide photographs of unspeakable acts, and verify quotes by Hitler.I have been thinking about what other professions deal with tragedy every single day : ER Doctors, Funeral Home Directors, Insurance Agents. Seriously,

14. Alive, I'm

With Summer just around the corner, I have realized that my life has been the busiest it has ever been. Frankly, I'm enjoying every minute of it.Since last I posted the library that I work in has opened. So has the museum that the library is contained within.I have spent the last 26 weeks assisting the training of docents, volunteers, and working with other museum staff to get the place up and

20. Scientist, Library

With 2009 right around the corner, I have decided that I needed to redecorate a room in my house to make it "more WDL". Which would be the lucky room? It was the bathroom. The design is simple: Vintage Laboratory. What? Don't question my aesthetics. This means that I am using lots of graduated cylenders and test tubes to hold my bath products, laboratory quality containers for my cotton

21. 2008, Goodbye

Another year has come and gone. For me, it is hard to believe that I've "done it" all by myself...and by that I mean I've proved quite a bit to myself this year. Some of the other things I've learned this year: a)It is super sad when your cat dies. b)I enjoy quiet nights more than going out. c)I want to date myself. d)Special libraries are amazing. I was out the other day, at another kind of
