It’s been three years since my first post came out on April 4th, 2012. Wow, what a ride it’s been! Let’s recap some of the coolest parts in our last three years:
I flew a plane.
When you enter the library field, you get to know the Friends of the Library (FOL) members…sometimes, one of them will have a plane and let you fly it.
I ran my first race with my best friend, Dylan.
Shortly after, Dylan was diagnosed with cancer. He beat it down and has been cancer-free for almost two years!
I met my friend/library school mentor/brash sidekick Katy!
Katy has given me advice on countless topics over the years and has occasionally had to hit me over the head. Don’t worry, I deserved it.
I got to do a comedy event with the very talented Meredith Myers, AKA The Stand-up Librarian.
There was gingerbread, singing, dancing, and lots of other good stuff. Meredith and I met at a Florida Library Association (FLA) conference and had wanted to do a project together for awhile. I’m looking forward to doing another project some day!
I helped raise funds for FSU’s School of Library Science.
I had the pleasure of being approached by my friend/other mentor/super fan, MJ to help out with the CCI Goldstein Endowed Scholarship Fund. This was my first time doing fundraising and I was glad I could help out. If you’d still like to give money, you can donate here.
I became a trivia host at my favorite hang out.
Yeah, this isn’t a super milestone, but it was my one weekly “get out of the house” ritual during grad school. I love trivia and I love learning, so there’s nothing better than to write trivia and get people to learn what you love!
I graduated from FSU’s School of Library Science.
I became Technical Services Manager at Putnam County Library System.
I had the pleasure of working as their Technical Services and Social Media Marketing Manager and learned more than I could have ever hoped.
I moved to Texas.
I moved to Houston for a new job (and pretty girl) in August of last year and I’ve enjoyed my time here thus far!
That’s all for this week, folks! I hope you enjoyed the highlights with me!
