A Few Weeks Apart
It still gets pretty cold here on Vancouver Island at night and early in the morning. Thankfully the snow stays in the mountains. I hate snow. There's a reason I moved to California from the home country three years ago.
I think it's pretty amazing that this is where I'm working now. Only a few weeks ago, my work environment looked like this:
I was working for two different library systems in and around Oakland. I did everything from working at the reference desk of a primarily Spanish speaking library (despite not speaking Spanish), teaching computer and job skills classes to adults, and doing data entry and other office work in a sea of cubicles.
Don't get me wrong, I liked the old jobs and worked with some great people, but I'm loving the mountains, fields, and fresh air. I'm even loving me some early morning mud!
