I think this year, I'm going to try and write more on this blog. It's been years since I've written consistently. Don't expect anything along the lines of how it used to be, but it might be fun to start writing again.
A little bit of an update on how I've been:
2018 has started off well for me. I've just celebrated my 1 year anniversary as a librarian (a dream come true!) and I'm finally starting to get out of the house more. Graduating from college has been difficult, since I've reverted to my misanthropic tendencies and have have not been going out nearly as much as I used to. The good news is that I'm starting to get out more, and am trying to meet new people. So far, I'm not completely on board with being a social butterfly. At heart, I'm still a bit of a loner.
In case you hadn't figured out, things did not work out well with my library patron. I mean, we're still friends, and things are going well that way, but we're not doing a lot of hanging out or anything like that. I think it's my fault. I told him that I loved hanging out with him, but that we would have to do it outside of the library, since it wasn't professional for me to spend my breaks hanging out at a table in the middle of the library, flirting and laughing at his jokes. I need to maintain an air of "professional librarian" not "goofy, lovesick sot" (although I didn't tell him that last bit). And it seemed like he understood, but we never did anything outside of the library. And he stopped coming by to see me. And then after weeks of radio silence, he sent me a Happy Valentine's Day text (that night, so like, too late to actually go out for a Valentine's Day date) and then nothing. I still see him at programs, and like I said, we're still friends, but it's not the same.
On the flip-side, I saw a cute guy at the office supply store. We started talking a little, and I told him where I worked (we were talking about library resources and 3D printing) and he seemed really interested (in the 3D printing) and said he'd stop by when he has a day off. Now, that was Friday and I didn't work this weekend, so I'm not sure if he'll be in or not. Still, a girl can dream, right? It was the first time I had really flirted with anyone in about a year, and that makes me feel really sad.
Anyways, I'll leave off at that for now. Hope to write again soon.
