What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a vet, a teacher, a nurse, a lawyer, a midwife, a costume designer, a professor and an event planner.
Instead I’ve been a publicist, a librarian and recently a yoga teacher.
Since I stumbled on librarianship accidentally, this awesome flowchart from LISNews had me cracking up.
If you are a librarian or you know one, go check it out here.
Starting next week, I’m shelf-reading 6,000 titles from the Google Project this past summer. I’ll be in a windowless and cold basement for 4-6 hours a week, checking to see if the books made it back to their correct location. (Talk about drawing the short straw, eh?)
My only link to sanity during this time — my iPod. I need your help to locate good, free podcasts so I don’t go insane and start taking hostages.
Currently I subscribe to some from NPR:
All Songs Considered
NPR: Books Podcast
Car TalkWait Wait Don’t Tell Me (I ❤ Carl Kasell)
Only A Game (which is weird b/c both my uncle and grandfather are also Bill Littlefield)
This American Life (also known as This Depressing Life)
Any others you can suggest? What are your favorites? They don’t have to be NPR ones either– I’d like to branch out.
