June in the Library can be so taxing....
I am trying so hard not to be the cranky pants librarian...
the students are studying for finals,
catching up and finishing off their research papers
have deadlines to meet and are stressed out
AND have lost all respect for the space.
I have had to become a disciplinarian
and I so dislike this part of me.
Where is a magic wand when I need it?
I believe students should self regulate their behaviours with a minimum of guidance and support.
I've got a bag full of tricks,
and I might need to pull some of them out...
they are not MAGIC,
I am an optomist, not a pessimist...
How can anyone have a bad day if they are wearing red shoes?
I am so glad to be walking everyday now
it puts those persnickety feelings far and away.
