Welcome to my world!

Hello all, I am a recent graduate of the University of Alabama and welcome you on my endeavor to find a job as a librarian.Currently, I am working two part-time jobs in an academic and public library setting and I am exhausted. I wonder if by the time I do get a job in my profession that I will be completely burned out. I had an interview last Friday for a job working entry-level and the interviewer asked if I was okay working with someone who made 25,000 bucks more than me. I said sure because realistically I have to get my foot in the door somewhere, and I know I'll have to work my butt off to get a chance at other opportunities. So, the interview was interesting in that I didn't have to talk much at all, the Director talked the entire hour and a half. At the close of the interview I was asked questions like my favorite color, what kind of pets do I like, what sport do I like to watch and other things. I thought this was odd but he had his reasons why he asked the questions, he said it was to make sure people were matched with similar personalities. I forgot one of the first questions asked was am I okay working with a Tennessee fan. Hmmm, YES! I need a job, so who you cheer for doesn't matter, though I'm ROLL TIDE all the way. I had more to say in this blog post, however I lost my train of thought from all the screaming children in the library today, as I patiently wait for the ones that need homework help.

Book Review:Insatiable by Meg Cabot

This book took me longer to read than usual.Why? It was boring, and basically I made myself finish it because I wanted to see how the love triangle would end between the main characters, of course I was left unsatisfied. What I believe will happen as with everything I've been reading lately that this will be a series, which I will be conflicted to read. Should I continue or not? It was 200 pages in before the pace started to pick up.This book for me seemed like just every other vampire book and parts of it seemed like Trueblood. The main character Meena is psychic, with the ability to see when people die, Sookie can read thoughts, the brother in the book is not very high on the intellectual skills, same in Trueblood. The male love interests both want her for her ability for whatever reason, same with Sookie. Now this show is not the only thing that this book made me think about while I was reading, in Bram Stokers' Dracula the main characters name guessed it Mina. Overall, if you can get past the beginning of the book is okay...the only other book by this author I've listened to was Jinx.With so many people on the vampire writing bandwagon lately, it really needs a original twist to be different and captivating? Otherwise,can you say overkill.
