>I am back to work! Well, not full-time. Not part-time either really. Just one day a week in my own home while my kids are with my mother-in-law. I’m not getting paid either, but I can have all the coffee I want. Yeah, perks.
As much as I have loved my time as a high school librarian and as much as it has pained me so many schools across America, such as where I was working, cut their librarians like split ends, I am nervous and excited about the new chapter in my life. I maintain my passion for media literacy and hope to entwine it in a future career path connected to any or all of the following: libraries, media, information, and writing. Entering the world of twitter and blogging has been a wake up call. I am finding a voice for myself and strangely, feel connected to the world even in my isolation. Plus, after a few months of nothing but mommyhood, it is nice to get reacquainted with my professional brain. That and a full night’s sleep and I feel human again.
I am determined to be successful in my pursuits, believing that my skills and knowledge are truly worthwhile. I am patting myself on my back and giving myself a pep talk. I know I can do this. I just need to find the right path.
First thing’s first, though, I need a refill…heeeeey, someone forgot to make a fresh pot. Oops, that was me.
