Did you ever have one of those days that made you want to run screaming from the library never to return? Yesterday was one of those days for me. I was utterly amazed at how easy it is for the library to be left out of important decisions and projects (like a college-wide web site redesign). I was seriously disheartened by how easily this could happen – and feeling as if I have been beating my head against a brick wall for the past several years. By the time I left work yesterday, I was seriously questioning my career choices.
A wonderful bath, some excellent alone time, a non-school book and a nice alcoholic beverage helped to give me some needed perspective – to make the world look a little less hostile and uninviting. Of course that only lasted until I read this, this, this and this all about this atrocity involving cyberbullying and death threats. I’m constantly amazed at the depth to which some people will sink. This is scary, scary stuff that can’t help but make me question the humanity of our species.
Really, I need today to be a better day!
