Welcome 2017!

It's been a while since I posted. A long while actually. Although there are quite a few things I hope to accomplish in 2017, the only resolution I have made is to get back into blogging. I need to step up my writing and this is a great way to do that.

This year has the promise of being a very busy one. In one week I will begin classes to earn my Masters degree in Library and Information Science. I will become an official, licensed librarian. I currently do the job, but this way I'll be able to call myself a librarian without feeling like a fraud. This is a really important thing for me. It may seem simple, but so many times I feel like a fraud in my own life. It will be nice to know no one can take that away from me.

I'm nervous about classes. I hope I can keep up with that, my job, my husband, and my kids and still - on rare occasions - have a moment for myself to read or crochet. I know that's selfish, but I need those moments to be able to be my best for the other moments.

For all my fear of that, I'm looking forward to 2017. I hope it's a better year than 2016. Some good things happened in 2016, but overall, I would have to say it was a pretty awful year. I'm eager for 2017 to prove itself to be better. There is so much to look forward to, but right now I'm feeling a bit down. I'll perk up soon, I'm sure, so I'll apologize for anyone I may be bringing down.

I'm going to try my best to blog on a daily basis. That may not happen, but it's my goal. I'll try to make tomorrow a more upbeat post. For now, though, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here's hoping 2017 has amazing things in store for you!


  1. Congratulations for starting your degree. I am sure you do a good job at being a librarian, but the degree will get you confidence, and also the professional push that must be there.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm just nervous about starting Grad school with everything else in life. I finished my Bachelor's degree before we had kids. It's terrifying right now adding more to my plate, but I know it'll work out in the end.
