Fun facts about my man, William Shakespeare. The fact that it’s in an infographic makes it even cooler.

Quote me Sundays…or Tuesday

Don’t let your mood dictate your manners.

-Unknown

I had a paper due on Sunday and completely forgot about Quote me Sunday. I had a slight meltdown at work, and I unfortunately allowed my emotions to take over; I basically acted like a Bee Eye Tee Cee H. So, this week, this quote will be my mantra.

Shshshelving books

Started a new job this week…I am a page at a local library. I am not upset. I am excited…well kind of. I started on Monday, and everyone at this library is lovely. They are so nice to me and so helpful…I feel guilty that I am applying at other jobs. A couple positions opened up at the University of Florida, and I am applying to them. I did not get the other UF job because I did not have enough (or any) supervisory experience. Disappointment was an understatement. But, not this time! I’ll apply and keep going with this job. I also applied for a job that is a level or two higher than my current job. Also…being cautiously optimistic. At first, I thought it was just raining good fortune on me, so many job openings, I had to get at least one of them. And, I did. But, it was my last choice one. However, I cannot complain. I am learning things everyday. It does suck to have to wake up early three days a week, but it could be worse. It could be everyday…

So, what am I doing exactly? I am shelving books…all day everyday. It’s not too bad. For right now, I’m focused on the juvenile part of the library; which is probably a good thing. If I had the YA section, I would be checking out more books than shelving them. I also find books for holds, which is a lot more fun than shelving. It’s much easier to find a book, than putting away a lot of books. I think of it as a game. I want to empty my section’s shelves before I leave. And, I did today. At least tomorrow, I can come in later. Woot.

Quote me Sundays

Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two…

-Winnie the Pooh

I begin all projects with this thought…sleeping promotes excellent productivity and creativity.

I’d like to think that all great and wonderful relationships happen this way.

Currently reading…

Reading this graphic novel for my graphic novels class. I don’t have much experience in graphic novels…hence me taking the class. This is a coming of age type of graphic novel of a young teenage girl. It was very relatable beginning from getting braces and the attempts to find yourself. I think this would be excellent for a middle school to high school audience as it could be very relatable to them. Overall an excellent read.

I’m starting this book tonight. I’m kind over the YA paranormal romances for right now, and moving onto contemporary novels. I read her other novel Hopeless, and I really enjoyed it. I loved both the characters and I hope this one will be equally enjoyable.
