The job I ended up with just happens to be the one I have wanted to land in for the last 9 years and due to a retirement was already in the works for me to train in, but it was very uncertain if anyone else would bump me for it

These were all personal areas for myself that I wanted to grow and I am so thankful that I have! When I think of looking at my ‘reverse gap,’ it is hard not to feel happy about what improvements have happened. I find I have no reason to get caught up feeling not good enough comparing to others when I just compare to my past self. Then think back 2 years, then 5 and 10. Some of these things happened that I hadn’t expected. A year ago, I didn’t know I was going to get the job I wanted. A year ago, if I thought about an exercise program, I wouldn’t have considered committing to more than 6 weeks of working out.

I’m actively dealing with what I want to do with the rest of my life as regards a career path which is worth my time

I’m finding that I’m in a relatively privileged position to have gone through ethical training as regards Library and Information Science — and I can use these skills in ways other than being, “a Librarian.” In addition to being able to see things from an Economic or Business perspective, I also have some clue about the impact of the very same policies on society. For instance, I find that there is very likely a desperate need right now not only for literacy in reading and writing, but also — maybe more intensely — a need for media literacy; that is, an understanding by the polity as to how organizations can manipulate them through the juxtaposition of different media: words, sound, still image, and video or moving image, not to mention the endorsement of their “friends” (i.e. the business leverage of their emotional relationships). How does someone get training in this? Media Studies? Studies of the propaganda that led up the Holocaust?

What if your business can’t be taken over by robots? Well, that would be great. That means that you would be less likely to be replaced. If your business is anything that a robot would have a hard time doing, you are totally in the clear.

I want less shifts than before the pandemic

Keywords: pandemic , parents , vertigo

Unemployment has saved my ass this last year and a half. It’s made it possible to keep working on writing and music and pay the bills. I’ve been lucky, because it supplements gigs and record and book sales and tea towels and t-shirts I’ve printed and sold. I’m always hustling but unemployment made the hustle more benign, less stressful.

In the day of my dreams I will be retired

Keywords: cabininthewoods , Dayofmydreams , isolation journals, Journal writing , Reflections

I want to retire. I am ready now to retire, but not sure how to go about it. Maybe one more year of teaching and occasional performances, and then I’ll decide on a new adventure. Gradual retirement will not work for me — too many exciting opportunities are available, and I can’t see to let them go by without accepting the challenge. I have tried to semi-retire, but within a few months my schedule was full again.

I was TERRIFIED because I wanted to work in Labor and Delivery so bad!

After my interview, I was told to expect to hear back in about a week. Six days passed and I was getting ready to take graduation pictures when I texted my roommate that I was upset and felt like I wasted my practicum time because I felt like there was no way I would get a job in L&D. Twenty minutes after I sent that text, I got a call where I was informed that A JOB OFFER WAS BEING EXTENDED TO ME! I was so overwhelmed with joy! I accepted that job and am currently waiting on my temporary license to begin working at my dream job!

I need to get this done so I can move on with my life, with my career

Keywords: research and writing , dissertation , frustration , notes , overwhelming , writing process

Some of this overwhelming feeling is likely coming from my lack of employment and the stress that brings. But most of it is the fact that I still haven’t written a draft of any chapter at this point. I feel like I’ve finally figured out who I am as a scholar, but I can’t get something coherent written to show that.
