This week was a little rough because I got sick midway through Monday. I’m still working off the congestion, sneezing, and sore throat, but I’m not nearly as run over as I had been. For some reason, I always feel really guilty when I have to miss work. Maybe it’s because we don’t have “designated” sick time: where I work, if you need to stay home sick, you do. There’s no “you get 8 hours of sick time a month.” It’s kind of on the honor system, I guess? Anyway, the lack of allotment makes me feel a little awkward.
I don’t know that I’ll be posting much in the next two weeks. It’s because I got a big time job interview and I need to prepare for it. Like most academic librarian interviews, I need to prepare a presentation to do in front of the entire library staff. Not intimidating at all, right? Trial by fire, I guess. Sooo, I need to prepare a powerpoint presentation, and then work on polishing my delivery. The interview is also on the opposite coast of where I live (I live in New England, it is in California), so there will be quite a bit of airplane time involved. Fingers crossed, though, because it sounds like a great job!
