It has been a hard few months. Family health issues are very frustrating. On the other hand, my new librarian job is going really well, and I’m stoked, and it’s just great. But the stuff outside work is difficult. I have to admit, I have not been at my best outside of work. People tell me it is justifiable, and I certainly don’t claim to be anything more than a human being, but still it is hard to be positive all the time. Sometimes the frustration comes out as excessive sarcasm and cynicism. I suppose that awareness is the first step in maintaining composure. I’ll work on it.
