Be Beautiful

Thinking about 2015 and looking forward to 2016. After completing my masters degree in December 2014, I decided to make 2015 a year to figure out how I could utilize my experiences to help others.  I started by offering to help more people - resume assistance and volunteering.  I also wanted to start writing again.  … Continue reading Be Beautiful

When inspiration strikes

Whether you are a writer, a painter, or a librarian - there is nothing like that spark of inspiration.  If you are privileged enough to attend conferences in your field, the part that is most fun is when an idea strikes you and you think "Oh! Yes!  I can...." One of the best parts of … Continue reading When inspiration strikes

Stressed? Don’t let your job kill you…

Work can be stressful.  Sometimes a situation can be so horrible, it's incapacitating.  Men and women both perceive and deal with stress differently (see the attached article from WebMD).  But, both sexes need to focus on practical steps.  You are, after all, more than your job.  You deserve to live your life without debilitating stress. … Continue reading Stressed? Don’t let your job kill you…

Can’t swim. But, I’m in the pool.

I really can't swim.  My parents took me for swim lessons at the local YMCA when I was younger.  I remember my cute matching lion swimsuit, being in the wrong swim group, crying, and a shark.  Matching? My sister and I are two years apart and we were often dressed the same. She likes to … Continue reading Can’t swim. But, I’m in the pool.

How do you find it? Google. Oh Google.

Have you used Google? Go Google that! It's a company.  It's a noun.  It's a verb. In 2015, Google was reported to be worth over 350 billion dollars. Let's embrace it and learn how to use it properly. Google is very easy to use. You simply type in your keywords - then the world opens … Continue reading How do you find it? Google. Oh Google.

How old are you? Take time to play, color, and have fun.

I believe in having fun - in everything I do. It helps with boredom, anxiety, and stress. It would be great to have adult playtime along side child playtime events at the library. Crafts, painting, book clubs, movies, coloring therapy.... why not? Sounds like fun and little stress. Go to your library, join an online … Continue reading How old are you? Take time to play, color, and have fun.

Here To Help

I offer advice and assistance to people on a daily basis.  And I kept thinking, I wish I could put my knowledge and resources in one logical place.  I love my library world.  I began as a library shelver on my 18th birthday, never stepping into a public library before.  I didn't know anything about … Continue reading Here To Help
