HOLY GUACAMOLE I GOT A JOB!!!!

This is my HOLY GUACAMOLE I JUST GOT MY DREAM JOB face. Nice, no?

This is my HOLY GUACAMOLE I JUST GOT MY DREAM JOB face. Nice, no?

And not just any job. My dream job!

I officially accepted the position of head librarian at Denver’s Bruce Randolph Middle School this afternoon. I honestly am still in a bit of shock, sweating and shaking and smiling like a maniac! I cannot wait to get started working with a great group of kids, getting them excited and interested in reading, inspiring them to think outside of the box and become the great life-long learners that I know they can be. I am on a mission to break the commonly held stereotypes of libraries and librarians! No longer is it going to be a stuffy and scary place to go, no siry Bob! And the great thing about this position is that I get full reign to do and make and create whatever space and educational (and fun) programming that I want.

And boy do I have big plans. HUGE!

I have a bunch-a-crunch of things on my ‘To-Do’ list (Moving across the country in two weeks? No problem. I got this.) before I make the big move but I just HAD to take a second and tell you guys!

I can’t even begin to express how grateful and thankful and lucky I am for having such a great group of friends and family (THE BEST) all supporting me through this whole process. Over and over again, God has shown that he has a great plan for me mapped out, and even though sometimes I question these plans (or diverges in the road as they may be), he always shows me that with a little faith, and a little hope, things will work out amazingly.

I cannot wait to see what this wonderful opportunity may bring and know that whatever lies ahead, it will be amazing!

Thank you all!

And happy Friday!
