I don't know how often I'll do this, but I decided my first weeks on the job as a librarian I would take a photo every morning of my outfit. They're not the greatest since my remote decided to stop working. But here you have it... What I wear to work.
It's funny how different my wardrobe is now that I'm not working at a desk all the time. I wore skirts all the time at my old job and now I've only worn a dress twice. It's hard to work in the stacks when you are wearing a skirt.
Another big change is tattoo coverage. We don't have a policy against tattoos at our library, but I did move from working in an office to working with the public so I try to keep my tattoos covered for the most part so people don't judge me before they get to know me. I'd rather be known as a great librarian than the girl at the desk with the tattoos. I haven't had any problems with them, but I do sometimes notice people staring.
Also something that I randomly notice in these photos are how needy my dogs are. We're needy dog enablers.
You may have noticed how quiet it has been around the blog lately. I am truly loving my new job, but it is taking up a lot of my creative energy. It also takes up more time than my old job. I used to spend 9 hours a day getting ready for work going to work and coming home. Now that my commute is longer I spend about 10.5 to 11 hours a day on those things. So I basically live out of my car and spend all my spare time cooking, spending time with friends, and sitting on my couch with my feet elevated. It's a glamorous life I lead friends!
We're currently working on our back yard makeover which is really exciting! We're getting a back door installed and will start working on a patio area, landscaping, and building a fence. It will be so nice to have another area to use for entertaining.
I'm finally starting to miss blogging so hopefully I'll be able to find more time for crafty projects and blogging this month!
