Sunday Post | High Stress Week is Finally Over!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news about the past week, reading recaps, new hauls, and more.

I have yet to crack open any ARCs, but I still want to make sure I post something about it weekly. I also don’t know which ARC I want to start with first, but I’ll have to figure that out soon. I think I’ll probably go with the last one that I opened since it’s been sitting on my desk since I opened it. I don’t know when I’ll read it, but maybe getting through it little by little every day will help. I can set either a daily chapter goal or daily page goal and keep moving from there.

Yeah…. I know that’s not all the books I got, but I also know that not every book on this list is what I picked up over the week. I’m sure that there are some on here that I picked up last week, so this just looks more dramatic than I anticipated. I’ll make sure to actually keep track next week, depending on if I actually get some books next week. Who am I kidding? I’m sure I’ll borrow some books next week.

Two books on this list are ILLs, though, so I need to prioritize them again and make sure I finish them before they are due. Or if I have a feeling that I’m not going to finish them on time, I’ll need to ask my library if I can renew it. I’ve never done that on ILLs before, so I’m wondering if the lending libraries will allow it. I’ll only find out if I try it, right?

This past week was high level stress for me. Mostly because we had two coordinators that were out sick for the week so I had to help take over some programs that I wouldn’t have normally had on my schedule. I only started this position on January 9th, so I’m a little over one month into the job. The whole week was full of programs and changes in schedule to make sure those programs had coverage so we didn’t have to cancel them. I did my best in all of them, and I think I did okay. I did receive some positive feedback from my Director of Libraries, my Community Learning Manager, and my Community Learning Senior Librarian. This humbled me so much and made me happy that I was able to get through it despite my hesitations and fears that I would do a bad job.

I truly feel like this is a dream job for me, and I’m so happy to be able to develop my own programs and be more involved in other teams for other bigger programs. I am already assigned to those teams, and I’m ready to do what I can to be an asset to our community. I go to work happy every day, and even though I was stressed this week, it wasn’t the kind of stress that made me regret my job choice. I look forward to continuing growing and improving from here.

So I noticed that I haven’t really been listening to music lately. It’s very rare nowadays that I do. But I was sent an album to check out and from the first few bits of what I heard, I know I’ll love it. Plus, it’s Avatar the Last Airbender music, so I know I’m going to love it regardless.

I took a break from Charmed for some reason. Probably because I know how close I am to the show ending and I don’t want it to end again. I know I could just rewatch it from the beginning yet again, but that was a long journey. A very long journey that I am not sure I want to go through again right away. I’m still salty that Phoebe and Cole didn’t end up becoming endgame, since Cole really did become good after being with Phoebe. Damn evil having to ruin everything all the time.

Okay I’m over it.

No, no I’m not.

But yeah, took a break from Charmed and have been focusing on getting through books so that I can make sure I return them without being obnoxiously late.

Okay, okay, okay. I just loved this couple and maybe I liked that Cole had a bit of a bad side too. Not the actual evil demonic side, but he wasn’t a goody goody like Leo was. You know what I mean? I signed up to work a few hours at the library on Monday – a federal holiday for the United States – and I’ll be checking in any books that were dropped off in the book drop over the weekend. I’m excited for it since I get to be there by myself and I’ll get to focus on my reading and have the whole library to myself! I’ll probably listen to some books that I have on my list that I can find for book clubs, or something else that can go pretty quickly. Luckily I don’t have to stay the whole day, but at least I won’t have to worry about any patrons needing help? Maybe.

See you on the flip side!
