Today was...weird. We plunged into our conversion project. My boss seems happier now that she's given notice. I contacted my boss's boss, and told her that I'd be happy to post the job listing to various library e-mail lists, but that I'll be off next week. She thanked me, and jokingly asked if I'd be willing to be on the search committee. I said that I definitely wanted to be on the search committee!

I was so overwhelmed that I forgot to practice my presentation tonight, and work on my poster presentation. Not good; I can't drop any balls because of what's going on. I did write a short Python program; I need to finish the class up by the end of the month.

Mimi and Zara got into a brief yowling fight when I got home. I distracted Mimi by telling her to cut it out, and Zara took off upstairs while Mimi was distracted. I can't deal with that right now either.

Boy, I will be glad when the presentation is over (a week from today), so that I can at least cross that off my list.

It's way too hot up here, so I'm going to do some stuff downstairs for a while.

I'm feeling better. We've posted the job listing for the Library Director position. Now we wait with fingers crossed. The person with whom I'm presenting next week was asking about the position, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. We had some run-ins when we previously worked together. But she isn't an ideal candidate. I'll tell her the good, the bad, and the ugly, and we'll go from there.

I'm feeling pretty confident about the presentation next week as well. And I made some progress on my poster presentation, although I probably won't have it finished this week as I had hoped. I still have some time though.

I just learned that I'm eligible for student loan forgiveness after 10 years because I work for a non-profit. But I learned that in an article about how Betsy DeVos wants to change the program. But this administration can't last forever.

It's supposed to cool off tomorrow too. Cool beans.

I just need to work tomorrow, and I'm off though Memorial Day (but I'm going to the conference Sunday - Tuesday.)
