So, I graduated today. OK, this may be my photo from my master’s degree graduation, but I thought the day worthy of some note.
What does this mean? Not sure, actually. I have just began making plans for a long term sub position as a school librarian, but I also have many plans for getting myself out there as a certified holistic health counselor.
What I have noticed over the past few months as my life has been consumed by a seemingly unending comedy of things gone wrong is that I revert to my quiet self. The self that likes being a librarian because then I don’t have to talk as much. The person that was drawn to library science, cataloguing, and the general life-long love I have had of libraries.
There is a difference now. I talk about going to the school and finding new clients there. I need to get myself out into the world to find them. That scares me, but I know they are out there just beyond my reach.
So Happy Graduation, me, and I hope that this transition will bring more nuanced fulfillment and a continuing evolvement of that thing that is being Brooke.
