2012 – Get back to playing

I was talking to a colleague yesterday about the new year. Consensus was that 2012 has to be better than 2011.

2011 sucked. It started ominously and ended with fatigue and weariness. It seemed like every week the situation changed. I lost my job. I got it back, sort of. Now my library’s going through a metamorphosis and we have no idea what the end result will look like.

In the much needed break, I realized I lost the spark with my job. Actually, the profession got tedious. I don’t feel any drive as a librarian. I feel doomed and run down.

That’s gotta stop.

I want to reengage, and the first step is taking time to see what’s going on. Not just scanning FriendFeed or Twitter, make an effort to learn and try a cool thing a week. Keep me honest.
