I've lived in Pittsburgh most of my life. But to say that I've always been in love with this city isn't exactly true. I've been a full-fledged librarian since 2009 (though I've been working in libraries since 2007). And to say I always knew I wanted to be a librarian when I grew also isn't true. It was a long and bumpy road to get where I am today. But oh, how happy I am to have made it here. And how thrilled I am to think of what they both still have in store.
So I have to admit I was really geeked out when Kate over at Yinzpiration emailed me a few weeks ago and said I had been nominated for her blog. I've been reading her blog since the near beginning and have always been blown away by the awesome people in Pittsburgh she finds. I was thought to myself "My goodness, I want to be that awesome."
Meeting Kate was a blast. She really is as upbeat, positive, and supportive as she seems through her blog. And she definitely loves Pittsburgh and its people. Which, if you've ever visited our pretty city, you know is at the heart of its charm.
You can check out my interview here. And just as a caution. You may find out a few things you didn't know about me before. But this blog is always and only a reflection of my own thoughts. Not of my employer's, not of any other librarian, and not of any other Pittsburgher.
A huge thank you to @Tad_Overdue and @Yinzrreadin who I found out nominated me for this awesome acknowledgment. It really means a lot to have people recognize the your efforts. <3
