This. Who am I? Why am I here? What do you want from me?
(I’m going to proceed as if you read that blog post I just linked to.)
It’s a very very busy semester. (I’m finishing another degree program.) I’m trying to keep track of what I know about who I am, and what my job means. We’re young librarians. We’re excited about our field and our jobs and how we can make changes and help students. We’re interested in everything. We want to do everything. We can’t do everything.
I’m going to sit down at a clean desk on a day without meetings, and I’m going to read my job description very carefully, and I’m going to write out the answers to three questions: who am I? Why am I here? What do they want from me?
I think I probably need to do this. For my job. And for my…life?
