Just had one of those lovely shifts that makes you feel all special and luved and good at your job:
1)Caleigh (aka my supervisor) asked me if, once the new budget goes through, I'd mind doing the buying for the Graphic Novels? Translation: Do I object to being given a Visa card, a $500 limit, and set loose in Chapter to buy manga and comics? *happy happy dance!*
2)My other job at the bookstore is about to come to an end (*sniffles* Too bad she's decided to close). And I overheard Tessa (the big boss lady) talking to one of the other librarians about how, "Whitney only has 4 shifts a week with us! We need to get her in here more." Apparently, the boss is happy with me, good to know!
3)I got free manga! It was a gift from Claire, one of the TeenAdvisoryGroup kids who moved back here from Japan last summer. She's an awesome kid, a smarter version of me at that age. I got to work and in my inbox there was a copy of "Tsubasa Chronicles" and a note saying that she just wanted to thank me for helping her out and being so nice to her. *sniffles* This on top of the hand-painted candles she brought be back from her last trip to Japan. I adore that whole family. ;)
