This means I have to wake up in time to do my hair and makeup…blech.

The nature of library work has changed for me this past week. As in, I have had to work in the actual library. This is quite a change, since normally I am in a cold, square, boring building. I can’t hate on the cold building since it has some obvious perks, but it has been pretty nice talking to people lately.

I only have to work in the library two days a week and I spend the rest of my time in the cold building. My first day was spent at a ‘welcome table’ helping direct lost students in the right direction. Since I don’t know where anything is on campus, I was useless. I am only ever in the cold building or at Target. How would I know where classes are? hmm. Thanks to the excessive use of DaytimeTheraflu I was pretty talkative and friendly, so I at least made lots of friends even if they never figured out where they were going. I did hand out lots of free pens though. I feel like that was a job well done.

My second day was spent at the circulation desk. Another place I prove to be completely useless. It’s always impressive when people come up to ask a question and I just provide ‘uhhhh, what?’ in response. I’m working on keeping that initial response to myself and at least coming up with something a lil’ more appropriate. We’ll see how I improve for next week. At least I’ll be able to add this experience to my list of neverending adventures.

    The little printer gremlins attack the printers every time I am on duty…and then there's the patron who starts pushing buttons on the printer as soon as I start to go get help and yells "I fixed it!" Yikes!
