The adventures are starting to pile up over here.

August 21, 2009

The main thing that initiated this week of adventure was that I will be working in an actual library, not just a boring, locked building when school starts next week. It will only be a few hours a week and I will still return to the boring, locked building near the end of the day. This could be exciting. I will be exposed to the public and it’s always questionable how they will react to my charming personality. Fingers crossed that I will maintain good behavior.

In preparation for the weekly 10 hours of excitement that starts next week I had to undergo 3 days of intense Circulation training at the ‘main’ library. Very important training is done over there. I learned how to use a computer, keyboard, mouse, scangun, the precise location of where the barcode should be placed, how to deal with crazy people (this one is pretty easy for me… me and the crazy people tend to get along just fine), I observed the strange love that men have for William Shatner and the equally important Zombie topic. Oh my gosh, zombies and male library employees. I don’t know what it is, but I have never been in as many zombie discussions in relation to real life scenarios as I have working for the library. My mind gets so frazzled that eventually I tune out and sadly I didn’t absorb any of my zombie training. Sorry.

The exciting part of the training was the three student workers who were training with me. They looked like the Jonas Brothers, in all ways possible. It was pretty creepy and it made me feel very old. I’m glad to be done with them for good.

In celebration of the end of summer/fall semester starting and the sad farewell of our summer helpers we went to lunch at Chino Bandido. This place is something special. I have included the link so you can see what fantastic dining options this establishment provides. I would recommend you start planning any orders you might be making for future visits to Arizona. Well worth the trip. It’s not everyday you get to combine quality chinese and mexican flavors and they do it well. WARNING: the options can be quite overwhelming.

Ok, so there weren’t really that many adventures this week, but school starts monday and I’m sure that’ll throw a few my way. Fingers crossed this will really be the last semester as an undergrad. If not, well then I quit. I will continue to work in this boring, locked building forever or at least until all library employees turn into zombies.

    I just noticed that there's a lot of 'finger crossing' going on today.

    Who ARE the Jonas Brothers?
