I'm employed. That's the big news I wanted to post about a while back. I waited until the negotations were done. Now that I've officially accepted, I'm pleased to report that I will be the English Reference Librarian at a medium-sized public university in the west. I got a really good feeling about the libraries at the university. The librarians seem like a smart, interesting bunch and appear to genuinely get along. This bodes well.
More soon. Have a great holiday, if you celebrate one around this time!
