August was a big month for me personally because I started a new job. Transitions of any kind are rough for me, but I think I'm starting to get settled in and figuring out how things work at this new library. Some major bonuses: I'm learning to use an automated system finally, I no longer have the for-profit blight on my current job description, I'm doing only library work - no more administrative junk, and, my personal favorite, I have my own bathroom that I don't share with students.
I also got to spend Labor Day with my favorite friends, relaxing at a cabin. I'll post more about that little trip later next week when I'll have some pictures to go with it. But it was basically the best. I miss them tons already.
And books? I got in a fair amount of reading, despite having the time limitations of going to work every day. Here's what I read:
The Heartache No One Sees by Sheila Walsh
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
