In two weeks I will be starting as a librarian at another vocational school, an art school, in a larger library with more staff and more opportunities. Since my long-term ambition is to work as a an academic art librarian, this is huge jump forward along my planned career path. So I am really excited! And I'm happy to be able to share this news with all of you now. :)
It's not so much about leaving my current job (although there are a lot of ways in which I am dissatisfied with it) as it is about taking the new one. And I'm glad about that; it's always better to leave for something better if you can. Part of me feels strange about leaving a job after less than a year; I've never done that before, not a serious job anyway. But this opportunity came along and I had to take it.
I will miss the people, though. And the students, although in a way the timing is interesting on that, since a group of the students I was most attached to finished a couple of weeks ago. But I got a really good vibe for the people I met on the interview, and there will be new students to get to know. All in all, I'm really looking forward to it!
And now, to not succumb to short-timers disease. Well, not too badly.
