They moved my workstation again today. This is getting annoying. But I'm not going to be here much longer. There's a new permanent employee coming in who will be doing my job in addition to whatever else she's here for. So I'm here today and tomorrow to show her the ropes (or the little pieces of string, as the case may be -- it's not a very demanding job) and then I'm done.

Then on Wednesday, the idea is that I will start my new library job. I hadn't posted about that yet because Alice was supposed to call me back to confirm something about how I would get paid and when I would start and she still hasn't. I'm going to get a hold of her somehow tonight and make sure everything is going to go as planned, but barring something completely unforeseen, it should all be okay. I can only work 20 hours a week there, which is too bad, but they'll pay me just enough to make it work out. The hours are going to be 2pm until 8 or 9, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. So I'll have Mondays and Fridays completely open for long weekends or for one-day temp jobs if I need/want to round out my income. Working at the library will be a lot like the volunteer stuff I've been doing there, in that the important part is being in the computer lab helping people learn to use the machines to practice reading or english or to do e'mail and whatnot. Then when there's no one around needing help, I'll probably just do whatever random jobs need doing at the time. So it will really be a lot like another temp job in that respect. But it will be fun to work at a nice library, with people I already know and like, and to be able to walk or bike to work. So I'm looking forward to it.
