I think we can all say that 2020 was a very strange and eventful year, even with us quarantining for a vast majority of it. I started grad school for library science this year, though I actually withdrew from my grad school program a few months later (because it was focusing on school librarianship, and I want to pursue public librarianship). I recently started a job as a library page at a branch of our local public library, and I am really enjoying it! We also moved unexpectedly this year! We moved back to Texas, which is where I grew up, so that we could be closer to my family. My daughter started in-person pre-school this year. It has been a hard year for everyone, but it has still had some great moments for me! And, I read WAY more books than I anticipated!!Continue reading “Yearly Wrap-Up: 2020”
