I’m doing a small life change. From January to June next year, I’ll be living in Oslo.
I’m excited. I’m terrified. And I know that if I don’t like it, it will only be six months.
And, while I don’t look forward to living in Oslo in January and February – I am very much looking forward to experiencing spring there.
I have already started bookmarking museums that I want to visit, and cafés to go to.
My next goal is to find a place to live.
Conference living part of this week. Must admit I don’t get the appeal of dry biscuits in the breaks, though they do improve when dunked in tea.
But the content of the conference is good, and the lunch includes nommy food.
April marks the third year I’ve been working in a corporate library. It’s different than a public or a university library. Not so many walk-in patrons. I kind of miss that.
But, I don’t have teen girls (or anyone, really) asking me for books about hot vampires anymore, either.
So there are positives.
I cleaned my desk before heading off for the Christmas vacation. Now – four work days later, it is almost as messy as it was when I abandoned it.
But the feeling of coming back to a clean desk made it all worth it.
When I got back to work after a two-week vacation, they had started renovating the cafeteria closest to my desk.
For the past two days we’ve been trying out the other cafeterias in the building – they serve the same food, which is made in the same kitchen – but somehow it is not the same. The food is in the wrong places, I can’t find anything… and so on.
And since it is the largest dining area that has been closed off, finding a space to eat can be a challenge.
I guess I am very much a creature of habit on some things.
