I Do It For The Love

It's been a busy week, but I did get a couple of nice compliments. Ah, the lifeblood of my fragile self-esteem!

Or, alternatively, of my vast and swollen ego!

One student said that she'd heard from some friends that I was their favorite librarian. (Awww!)

She said the description was "the tall thin woman with the short red hair."

I was a little taken aback, although the description is accurate. I'm just still not used to it, I guess, because ever since forever, until not that ago, it would have been "the tall thin woman with the freakishly long red hair."

It takes a few years to shed that identity. Even after you've shed the hair.

Then another student said everyone keeps telling her about how great the librarians are in our library, and how we're all so helpful and everything. (Awww!)

Being anecdotal, this is not A-level evidence of my awesomeness. You will also note that both of these comments were second hand, so it's possible both of the students who told me were, themselves, horribly disappointed in their library experiences.

Nevertheless, I'll take it.

I think that is nice - a compliment always makes any day :-)
