i’ve had a bloody long day, seven hours on the reference desk, several of them unexpected, a research meeting, 2 talks that i wanted to go to and couldn’t. but for once i have nothing to say besides despite the fact that i graduate in december and have no real job prospects and not enough experience in any one thing to be really impressive, i’m genuinely happy. i feel a palpable sense of possibility in virtually every area of my life. i’m just on the brink of having a hand in doing interesting and useful research. i have really excellent friends who make being in any geographic location bearable. i have a really wonderful partner and fuzzy pets to come home to.
altogether i’m in a pretty decent spot.
