leadership and peon-ship

One event down, two more to go. Overwhelming? Definitely. Did I realize what I was getting myself into when I agreed to this whole organization presidency gig? No. Not at all. I might not have done it, otherwise. The  bright side… all the “real-world, leadership experience” I am gaining. I am now highly skilled in the art of describing how a particular event will benefit the institution in order to get funding, deciphering bureaucratic double-speak, and staying awake during long meetings. My resume appreciates it at least.

While on the subject of my resume… I need a job. A real one. Ideally, a full-time position in a library. This whole two job, teaching deal is slowly destroying me. I find that I give too much of myself to work, and have no time to work on my own projects. I want a job doing something I love, not something I do because I have no other option.
