I made it through my first week without destroying anything! I feel better about this now.
My schedule has been rough, as I have been having to cover both day and evening shifts. That will ease up once the new Evening Reference Librarian is completely trained. She is making excellent progress, and I anticipate reverting to my normal schedule on Wednesday. That will quite a relief. The caffeine overdoses and lack of sleep are taking a toll on my old body.
I don’t know whether it is the combination of caffeine and adrenaline or what, but I am feeling a lot better mentally. Almost hypomanic. Whatever it is, I’ll take it. This is far better than depression. I just have to keep the impulsiveness under control. That is something I can handle.
Welcome to 2010! May it be a great year for all of us.
