I always have such high hopes for school breaks. I always go in feeling like I'll have so much time to Actually Get Things Done. All those things on my mental list of things to do, like really clean my room, clean out my closet, read all the books that have been piling up, WRITE MORE...they just end up sitting there on the list, staring at me while I fall into a black hole of re-watching Parks and Rec for the fifth time because it's too hot to go out and do anything, or I'm too tired from working all the time to be bothered to do things when I don't have to. Before I know it, it's August and I haven't really done anything.
Tomorrow, I return to the two-job life. Fortunately the first two weeks will just be me alone in the library, getting it ready for the new school year. I'm looking forward to sharing all the new books I picked out with the students. I'm hopeful about creating an even better library experience for them, now that I have two years behind me. And I'm making a new list, one of all the reasons I can be glad summer is ending soon, to cheer me up when I think about having to wake up early again.
- My favorite seasons are next, which means
- The good holidays are coming up
- Cooler weather=more Pokemon walks
- Cooler weather=more baking
