This was a rough week. I love what I do, but I don’t think the school I work at is the place for me. The climate is kind of depressing and I feel really isolated. I don’t agree philosophically with the ideals of the administration. I think it is all just starting to wear on me. I have begun the search for a different school for next year.
Being so tense all week makes everything difficult. I’m tired but don’t sleep well. I want to stress eat. I grind my teeth. It is just not healthy. And it really bums me out because I got to a good place with my anxiety and OCD and this stress just makes me nervous. Ugh!
So, all that stress pretty much consumed my week. The weather here has been crazy. It was in the 60’s until Friday then it dropped 40 degrees. By the middle of next week we are back into the upper 50’s. This is seriously NOT normal for Ohio in January.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
I hope you find a great position for next year which is a better fit. In the meantime, be kind to yourself.

I’m sorry to hear about your stress. I get it! I want to get into a district where I feel the library is more supported. However at my age I think I’m not really considered because it is cheaper to hire younger newer librarians. Which is fine. For the most part I am not really judged on the fact that I don’t get much library stuff done since I’m having to do so many other things for the school instead, like virtual school, technology things, etc. Oh well. I hope you are able to find a better fit, work life stress does cause us to go downhill in other life areas too. Here’s to making it through the rest of the year with a new job coming for next school year!
I’m sorry to hear that. I had a few issues with our school’s admninistration (I’m not a treacher or anything, just stuff abour how they handled a few hot button issues) but my kids graduated so I can leave it behind. I definitely felt out of sync philophically with the administration though as a parent. Wishing you a better work home soon.
I actually read 20 of the books from that top 100. I am impressed. It’s like adaptations and CoHo dominating that list. Good luck with the job search. It’s so important to feel supported in your job and believe in the way things are run. Hang in there.
I’m sorry! I know how hard it is to work with an administration where you don’t share their ideals — often it’s about doing things that you not only disagree with but feel are bad for kids and that’s super stressful. I hope the remainder of the year isn’t too stressful and you’re able to find a new school that’s a better fit for you next year.
I am sorry to hear that Samantha! And I hope you’ll find a new school next year, one that would be a better fit for you!
I’m sorry to hear you’re current school is working for you. It’s a learning curve but at least you’re figuring out the kind of school you would like to work in? It’s tough having to face through the year while you look. Hopefully this week is better for you, the work may not change but hopefully, there’ll be other good things.
I hope you find a better school for you for next year. Good luck! I’m also looking forward to the Helena Hunting book. Hope you enjoy your week.
