That was odd...

Right. So, went to the local library branch where I finally managed to nab a copy of Armor by John Steakley (thirty-three cents, woo!), and I ended up becoming a volunteer there. So, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays I have something to do for a few hours each day. And I get to be around books for all of it. Yay!

I'll be shelving books, which is apparenty something that they really need right now. It was strange, how incredibly quickly they took me in as a volunteer. Must be something that they are desperate for, I guess. They said to come in tomorrow. After all this searching for a job with no results, I get a volunteer position immediately. Seriously, I am filled with confusion.

Sadly, since this is a volunteer position I will not be making any money, so that kinda sucks. From what I hear though, there are part-time jobs that open up from time to time, so a record as a solid volunteer might help my chances in getting that. Hopefully. So, yeah. Feeling slightly shell-shocked over how incredibly fast it happened, but overall I am optimistic.

Also, it took us three hours to shop for cream cheese. Mainly because we kept forgetting that we were shopping for it, but still. All in all, I am quite tired. I still have the cupcakes to make tonight, and I think I will make the experimental Quiche either Wednesday or Friday evening. Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.
  • Congratulations! Also, working as a volunteer gets you some work cred when applying for jobs -- you can ask whoever you're working for at the library to be a reference.
  • This.
    Who knows? It could be the start of a promising career as a librarian.
    • That would be quite awesome. I've always loved books, and being paid to be near them would be filled with several different shades of Win. Also, it would be a good excuse to go back to school to study Library Science.

        Plus, the job security and pay is better than at most bookstores.
  • I hadn't honestly considered that. I was really thinking of it as something to spend time on that helps out the community. I'll have to keep that in mind.
