Finally did it

Well, I did it. Yesterday, I gave my notice at the library. I'm going to work through July to give her time to at least get mostly through the hiring process of finding a replacement, but then I am out of there.

At the end of the day, it was both easy and hard to do. Easy, because I'm done with my manager and my frustrations about the mistakes my fellow aides are making (that I'm then forced to correct when I find) have been growing like crazy. Hard, because I love the library and everybody else who works there. Libraries have always been my safe space. Part of me is going to ache from missing it.

But it's the best choice for me, and I know it. I need to take 10 days off in August anyway to take Alicia back to school in DC, so now I won't have to ask for it. Plus, my mental health will improve. And regardless of whether I start school in the fall or the winter, I'll have time to get ready. The library was good about giving me back some of my confidence, and now it's time for the next step in my life.

I'm so excited about where it'll all go next. :)
