Bootcamp

So - my first professional job as a librarian. I danced around the apartment when I received the phone call, and then, on my first day -thunk - back to earth. What do you do when your supervisor, followed soon after by your co-workers, tell you to find another job as soon as possible - not to get trapped here. I can see their point, it's not subtle and the signs are all there. But I have to stay, at least for a year, probably two. I've decided to view my first professional job as an intensive training ground, bootcamp for librarians. No matter what, I think I'll become a better librarian because of the training I get here. Well, that's the plan anyway...

and hope things work out for you! Congrats on your first job as a librarian.

Re:Keep on journaling

Thanks, I will. :O)
  If nothing else, it should provide lovely drama... ;O)

Re:Keep on journaling

I drink. I find that works for me. I may try something alcoholic if the diet coke stops helping.

Re:Keep on journaling

Keep your head down and your mouth shut. Do not get drawn into discussions about what is wrong at this library. Been there. "Boot camp" is a good attitude, and you'll learn a lot.

Re:Keep on journaling

Yesh, indeed... mini bottles of harder fluids is not a bad idea... ;O)

Re:Keep on journaling

Thanks for the advice - it's the exact same advice that my supervisor has given me, and I'm going to follow it to the letter. :O)
