The Countdown

I am officially counting down my last days as the GA at the Engineering Library - the spring break week will be my last week of work. Not only will I run out of UGS credits this quarter (i.e. I won't be registered for full-time student credits anymore, which is a requirement for GA positions), but with the budget cuts a certainty for the next academic year it makes most sense for the library to hire a new GA before the college begins to reconsider the position's funding. I cannot imagine how the library would continue to function smoothly without a GA; I really hope the position is retained.

As a result, work is less fun these days since I end up reminding myself of the fast approaching spring break (no matter how hard I try not to!). Of course, the other parallel threads in my life don't help at all. The only consolation is that I expect to be done with my defense soon and also have a "semi-plan" of what I am going to be doing next. Having worked at the library for 2.5 years and having made so many connections here, I am sure it is going to be really difficult in the coming weeks. However, I am also kind of looking forward to the end of this phase. I hope this will be the last of the student worker positions for me.

To better things ahead... cheers!
