For the third time since our arrival in Canada over four years ago, I’ve had a first day in my new job.
This one wasn’t too nerve-wracking. The co-workers were friendly and understanding, the situation matched the training I’ve been given, and the customers (referred to locally as “patrons”) were patient and seemed to have read the same training materials I had.
I’m sure I’ll have up days and down days in this job, like any other, but it feels like a job I could love. I’m actually looking forward to my next shift. Best of all, there’s plenty of work to do, but time in between to keep up my script appraisals and play writing.
I hope whatever you’re doing is bringing you as much pleasure.
Congrats Damian, I hope it continues to run smoothly. 🙂
Thanks Cate. To be honest, it’s a bit of a dream job – working in a library! Inspiration and research, as well as a financial boost… Who could ask for more? Oh, and since it’s part time, there’s still room to write!
A library? Ohhhhh…. [insert serious envy here!]
I would love to work in a library, Damian You are very lucky to find such a job that fits and compliments a career in writing:)
