Happy Holidays!

As the year draws to a close, I feel that changes are finally afoot in my life. This has been a trying year, especially in terms of work. I rarely post about my job now, and that's mostly because my beloved library is falling apart. But, in spite of that, there have been some successes - a new slate of tech classes that I am teaching, a couple of additional YA programs, and at least a personal sense of accomplishment from time-to-time.

The job market here is horrendous, and that's been a constant struggle for me. I was even prepared to make a major move (for me, at least) for a dream job, but it was a long-shot that didn't pan out. But there's something else on the horizon, and I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Personally, BIG changes are definitely in store - both good and sad (isn't that usually the way?). While I relish change in the workplace, in my personal life - not so much. But in the end, I think that moving on from some negative situations can only mean more happiness.

So, no matter what life has handed you this past year, here's hoping that the good stays good, and the not so great improves in the coming year.

Wishing you peace and joy this holiday season!

Happy Holidays to you, too! Here's hoping 2008 puts 2007 to shame in terms of goodness.
