April 30th

Yesterday, I was telling you that I wasn’t mature enough to fold my laundry and now I’m showing you what I do at work on a Friday night. Yea, I color. Tonight, it was so dead, I got to color two pages! Wow, excitement. Continue reading

The fountains outside the library have been turned back on now that it’s nice and warm outside! This set of fountains is one of my favorite things on campus. A lot of the lights are out but the ones that work are really pretty. They greeted me on my walk to my car after work. It was a nice greeting after a frustrating last patron. Continue reading

I worked seven and a half hours today. I sometimes say I can’t stand my job, I don’t really know why I do that. I mean, yea, it’s boring but it’s really not all that bad. Sometimes patrons come in and yell at me. Sometimes students come in and talk down to me. For the most part, though, people are really friendly and make my job fun. When I first started at Bizzell in 2007 I was so nervous to have to talk to the patrons. Continue reading

OK, OK I know it’s not Valentine’s day but Lindsay and I got extremely bored at work tonight. When you are working in a library on a Friday evening, anything will entertain you. Continue reading

The Sun came out today!! The weather has been so depressing. It has been so cold and gloomy. The snow is finally melting and there are shadows. SHADOWS! I haven’t seen a clearly defined shadow in what seems like weeks. It seemed only appropriate to take a picture of the library since I would be spending the next 8 hours there, during prime sunny time.

Well, today I had to improvise a bit. I’ve been on campus all day. I had class at 9:30 and I haven’t gone home since. One of the girls I work with had a dress rehearsal for a musical she is in and needed someone to take her shift. A week and a half ago I thought “eh no big deal, it’s the shift right before mine and I don’t have anything else to do.” O my, stupid me. I got to work at 4 and I don’t get off until midnight. That’s a long time to be in the same place. Continue reading

O the library. I’ve been working at the university library now for almost 3 years. At the end of every shift I scan all the books that are turned in. We call it discharging. I sit at a computer behind a partition and scan every single book. After I scan the books I stamp all of them with the current date. After I scan and stamp we have to sort them to be ready to be shelved. Continue reading

Today’s picture is a panoramic of my current view at work. This is what we call “South Gate” because it’s the desk by the south entrance. Whoever is at this desk pretty much does nothing. We can check books out to people but not many people know. People usually just ask questions about the library or campus. I rarely have to work down here. I spend most of my time at the main desk because I am a student supervisor. Today, because of the break, there are three supervisors working so I offered to come down for half of the time. This is the view I get to look at for 2 1/2 hours. Continue reading
