Le ciel tumultueux

Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything

Struggling to find a job in my own profession, keeping that passion which I first set out with has been a real and every day battle. Volunteering and blogging are the only outlet for this passion. And while volunteering has been incredibly rewarding and is always fulfilling, it only goes so far as to what I want to do for the library.

At times it can feel as though you’re viewing a party through glass walls. One you continually ask for admittance to, and one you continually get denied. Volunteering allows you to get into the party, but not really the opportunity to take part in the festivities. It can be a bit disheartening.

For the unemployed, tumbling at least gives me the opportunity to breach that wall a bit. It allows me to wave at those on the inside and get a bit of a reaction and recognition. This in tern keeps me going, and helps keep the passion alive. Without the hope and passion, who knows what would have happened.

The Unemployed Librarian in response to What has Tumblr done for you?

I think this is important for everyone to read and remember. I’m sure you’ve all been there. I currently work VERY limited hours at a part-time library job, and volunteer the rest of the week at another library, just to be in a library. I’m grateful for the opportunity, but it can be difficult to stay motivated and positive. Make sure to salute your volunteers.
