First day in a library

TRY THE CHALLENGE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

Wow my first day at work was so not what l expected. You hear stories of people who get so overworked they simple fall into bed and we all think that is the norm. In reality the first day at work is like the first day at school looking around with wide eyes as you try to find and asses your position within the hierarchy. Will you be the popular one the name your boss will remember at the end of the day or are you the mousey one who everyone constantly asks the name because it is too complicated to remember and no one really seems to care.

So my first day at work was the worst. I am not a people pleaser by nature l am the type that sits by the corner and makes sarcastic remarks about everyone. So for once l had to bite my tongue smile and laugh all day long so exhausting. But working in a library is a very exciting adventure for me you never know who you will meet and what that will say so it brings a different kind of excitement in my life. My first day in the library opened my eyes to another world l never knew existed and cannot wait to explore.

WHY BEING BETRAYED IS THE BEST THING THAT CAN EVER HAPPEN TO YOU!!!

Betrayal is like an induction test you need to get into the exclusive world of business. It separates the boys from the men and girls from women. Yes everybody this is a test you need to pass and l am providing you with the cheat sheet with all the answers. Even we librarians face this test from time to time.

Have you ever been deeply betrayed by a colleague who used you as a stepping stone to success. Then let me guess you then went around o your friends in the office ranting about the unfairness of it all and painting yourself as a victim of malicious sabotage. Well my friend you are not alone. As much as people always tell us to be prepared for the worst in business but we never are. So now let us discuss the best ways to deal with such an act.

Confrontationconfr

I understand most people might think this is easy as you are simple trying to express your anger but you are forgetting one significant detail the offender also views himself as an innocent who was forced by circumstances. So in this situation instead of being angry and shouting try and explain it to them how angry their actions made you. Yes people talking over stuff is not something only reserved for women? Even though it might not achieve much it relieves the anger in you.

Sulking

Yes if something this bad happened to you, you are given a free ticket which allows you to sulk but only for a day. You do not want to destroy all your friendships by holding grudges and refusing to talk. There is a thin line between being angry and being immature do not cross it. Give yourself a couple of hours to blame the offender for all the bad things that are happening into your life and how you want to make them suffer. That brings us to point number 5.

Plan the most elaborate revenge plots

No one said you have to mature about but remember plan it do not implement it. Think of the most complicated plan which will cost a lot of money and include even celebrities like Sylvester Stallone to say in his amazing accent that revenge is a dish best served cold. You are even allowed to form an evil laugh and cackle to yourself for the whole day. Remember just one day do not exceed that.sylvester Funny Sylvester Stallone MEME

Forgive Them

This is the final and most crucial step FORGIVENESS. Yes even though they do not deserve it and will most likely do it again just forgive them. Remember you are not doing it for them but for you. Release that grudge so that it stops being your problem and weighing you down. That is the only way you can make it in business.

Get betrayed, follow these steps then and most importantly let it go. Yes as hard as it may be if you don’t let it go you are only hurting yourself. Most importantly remember what does not kill you only makes you stronger.strong

Ummmmm By the way who are you?

Sometimes you work for so many years in a workplace and by the time you are done and are retiring your boss still does not know your name. Your colleagues are still calling you by the wrong name. Believe me l know how it feels. For the first few months in my job my boss called me Teclar and because he was the boss l could not correct him. However these are the subtle ways to stop being the invisible man.

  • Ask something personal

Don’t be creepy and start asking about where they leave. Just casually introduce a conversation then ask if they own a pet. Start small.

  • Do a randomly nice thing for the person next to you  kind act

Do something nice for the person who works next to you. It might be helping them carry a bag or a nice compliment about an observation they made. Believe me it works wonders.

  • Ask after a loved one

You can ask about the welfare of their family or daughter. If you are not too sure do not assume, you might end up stepping on an emotional bomb.

  • Share a joke

You don’t need to tell them jokes everyday. Just something you have heard which is funny but not too offensive. Offensive jokes are not a risk you want to take.

  • Share a personal story

telling someone a little about your story achieves wonders. You might find you have a lot in common which you never knew about.sympathy

It might seem small but l promise people will know your name. I am looking for writers for my blog if you are interested you can follow my blog at https://theonettiencube32.wordpress.com/2015/02/12/mind-blowing-librarians/

Don’t be afraid to comment l can take criticism from the best. Though l don’t mind compliments. Make an impression by developing your career.

Those who are interested in writing for my blog can email me at

MIND-BLOWING LIBRARIANS

When l was young l always dreamt of being something fancy like a doctor or a pilot. When l think about it now l think it was about the respect they got from everyone they saw. That uniform could command attention which made it awesome. On the other hand librarians where the people my friends would bad-mouth whenever they turned their backs on us. That was until l stumbled on this website which showed me that librarians were not old and stuffy but were actually awesome even without the uniform.So now lets talk about what makes librarians awesome. images LIB

So librarians are awesome because they know the craziest things. Librarians read widely and because of that they get to know the answers to the craziest things. If they do not know the answer of the top of their heads they definitely know where to find it. What is more awesome than a person who is able to answer the “but why” chorus which children love to sing. I tell you this no one.

There are great because they know how to keep a room full of people quiet. We might laugh and make jokes about the shushers but they sure know how to make us all keep quiet with just a look. A room that can make your most rowdy friend quiet just because of the librarian. I repeat AWESOME!!!!!!libbra

As popular as the internet is they still remain relevant. This is an occupation which will never age. With the rise in the use of computers virtual and digital libraries are being created and continue to exist and adjust as the world around them changes. In 4015 your great-grandson can say my great grandma was a librarian and people would know what that is. You have to agree that is just INCREDIBLE.

If you still don’t believe that librarians are mind-blowing then you are not ready to admit that you were wrong. Librarians really are astounding.

Gambling vs librarianship who wins?

After asking a number of my peers who are in their twenties what their dream job might be l was shocked to receive that answer that they would rather work in a casino because and l quote “all the excitement and money what is better than that.” So very few of you may be not be surprised at how much they laughed at my face for suggesting librarianship. This blog gives me a chance to fully defend my answer by showing the more exciting side of librarianship.

Recently reading through the other blogs l have discovered that librarianship is diverse and there are so many careers one can pursue in librarianship. There are adventurous careers like being a cruise ship librarian travelling on the salty waters and meeting new and diverse people every trip. it also gives an opportunity for the librarian to learn new languages and can you imagine the kind of stories there are able to tell their friends and family. I personally would not mind getting a chance to be a cruise ship librarian.

We have the book bus librarians who travel across cities seeing the world again and getting to experience new environments. This kind of librarianship is not for me because l get heavily car sick but l think it will be a great opportunity for those who still want to travel but are not willing to go to far from home.

I have always admired research librarians. Just imagining the kind of information they can share from the top of their heads has always been an inspiration tome. I love being a Know-it-all but that title should go to the research librarians who get the chance to share their knowledge.

So again l ask what is better librarianship or gambling. Gambling might give you joy for a short-lived time while librarianship will give you a chance to enjoy travelling while getting a steady pay. Very few old people work at the casinos the older you get the higher the risk of you getting fired from your job which does not occur in libraries. And if nothing at all has convinced you just think of the health benefits and your pension fund waiting for you.

This blog is directed to all those people who think librarianship is boring to rethink again because very few careers give you a chance to take your whole office and the staff on the road so that you can work as you admire the scenery.
