2018-15-Projects

Projects Hello friend, I think I’ll do a semi-regular update on how this year’s projects are going. Well, the past week or so has been more flexible.

Library – 2018 – 7 Hello friend, I had an interview yesterday for 1 of 3 library orderly positions. I thought the interview went okay but I did’t get the job. There were only 6 interviewees for 3 positions and I didn’t even get one of them! I am woefully disappointed. The librarian told me
