Bookish Discussions: I'm a Librarian in a New City!

WOW! The last few months have been a whirlwind for me! I apologize for letting my blogging slack but so many exciting things have been happening.

I accepted a job at a law school library in Boise, Idaho! Me and Allan (my fiance) packed up all our things and made the move from Tacoma, Washington to Boise, Idaho. It was a hectic month of moving, stressing, and finally arriving at our new place.

The moving company delivered our stuff  a few days after we got here in October and since then we've been slowly unpacking. My favorite part of unpacking is finding the things I packed up weeks ago and forgot I owned. Moving also makes me realize the sheer number of books I own. Around 500 now? And that is after I donated/sold about 75 to Half Price Books.

I started my first job out of library school as a Public Services Librarian! It's great to put to use all of the things I learned while in library school. My favorite thing about my job is still helping students with research questions. I love that moment when everything clicks and students are able to actually find what they were looking for. Although, faculty questions are fun and challenging so I like those too!

In 2017 I've decided to focus more on my writing. Last year I attended Madcap Retreats in March and I learned so much. But I got caught up in school, finding a job, and everything took a back seat. This will be the first year that I haven't been a student in ages. Now that life is settling down a little I'm ready to shift my focus onto writing and getting published.

I hope to blog a little more this year and share some of my own writing here! So that is where I've been. Here's to 2017 and all the exciting things it holds!


  1. WELCOME! I love in Idaho as well! It's always exciting to see fellow book lovers in Idaho!

  2. I hope you can get around to really cracking down on your writing this year, and keeping this blog going too! Moving is always quite an experience - you must be glad it's all over! Being a librarian is also uber cool, so have fun :D
