Days gone by…

It’s 8AM and the alarm is blaring
but hear it I do not
My eyes blink open and are staring
it is now 10 o’clock
Hardly time to brush the dust
from my sleepy eyes
In an hour leave I must
Let’s go, get up, arise!
Squeeze my pants over the buns
no time for a pose
Can’t wear sneakers so grab the ones
that hurt my pinky toes!
Wash face, brush teeth, ponytail
pet cat, and kiss my beau.
Grab my lunch and hit the trail
no time for moving slow
Drive in traffic, honk at cars
scream that’s not a LANE!
Frustrations got me seeing stars
driving is a pain
Get to work and circle block
until a space I find
Must punch in by 1 o’clock
some cuss words cross my mind
They want books, staplers, computers
and rooms to study in
I also point them to the tutors
and do it all with a grin
The printers either have a jam
or paper they are out
They open and close them with a BAM!
I stare over with a pout
Counting five, six, seven, eight
hours do go by
Make sure all the books are straight
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have Thai
Punch out the day is finally done
Quick run to the car!
Pass the others one-by-one
I can’t wait to take off this bra!
Park and open up the door
Shoes come off fast
Fall into the arms of my amour
Good to be home at last!
Three weeks flew by I forgot to blog
Give up I thought I must
Forget it! No! Push away the smog
In my readers I must trust

Today was my last day!

Today was my last day!

Good evening all!

What an exciting day! It was my last day at a job that brought me a great deal of agony. I am a bundle of nerves and happiness as I prepare to start my career on Monday.

I wore a cheerful bright orange-red today to celebrate my departure. For some reason it still does not feel real. I am thinking it might on Monday as I pull up to the new place.

I still can’t believe I made it to this point. Finally I get to call myself a librarian! Dreams do come true 🙂

Guess what?

Guess what?

Symptom of happiness

My hands are tingling
and are beginning to shake,
My emotions intermingling,
Did I just catch a break?
This anxiety I’m feeling
is not impending doom,
My insides are reeling
and yet no thoughts of gloom
The road was rough
many lessons needed learning,
What didn’t kill me made me tough
while my stripes I was earning,
Love renewed my soul
and is the only thing that’s real,
It mended me whole
as it began to peel,
All that negative energy
that surrounded my mind,
Locked it far in my memory
with a key I’ll never find,
I learned to be optimistic,
So what should appear?
I’ll keep this simplistic
I have a brand new career!

I am FREEEEEEE

I am FREEEEEEE

Good afternoon all my lovely followers. Guess what? You got me back on a full time basis. I am finally finished with my thesis which means I am finally finished with my MLS degree! This has been hanging on my head for a long time and I feel so light and happy now that I have crossed this off my list. I hit sumbit last night on my 56 pages of pure I-just-want-to-graduate-already genius!

I will be catching everyone up over the course of the remainder of the year. I cannot remember if I shared my holiday decor but Christmas arrived at my home! Continue reading

Here we go again!

Here we go again!

Well this is it. Today I begin first day of my last semester as a masters student for the second time. It is just as overwhelming now as it was the first time… however you’d think I’d be a thesis writing expert by now. Honestly I was irritated that I have to write another one. Not because I don’t think I can do it or handle it… rather it is because my program initially gave me a waiver. I was grated permission to substitute the capstone with another class but the person who agreed to this is not around at the moment. I was told I could do an independent study instead but I didn’t feel like dealing with the hassle of finding a professor to work with me last minute so capstone it is.

I can’t really complain can I? They graciously allowed me back into the program without a fight despite my GPA barley hugging the 3.0 line thanks to a couple of C’s caused by missing finals for two of my classes…. ugh… anyway I truly am grateful to be in this position just overwhelmed. When I was working on my history thesis it took me more than one semester. This paper needs to be finished in a single semester. I know I can do it. I am a researching pro.

See… I’ve already begun to compile my book collection for the literature review!

 

Throwback  Thursday: My job vow!

Throwback Thursday: My job vow!

It starts with a feeling… joy… utter and complete happiness… you no longer dread Mondays… you feel a slight sadness on Fridays (especially during your depressive states and hated being home with your feelings)… you are in a place where you feel like you belong… a piece of your puzzle has been found and you are complete… as far as career choices goes. That is what it was like when I began my job in a library back in 2010.
