Whom What Wherefore...

Where the hell have I been?

Hell I don't know. I've been in the library and at the computer but just haven't got off my arse and published anything. Well, I am the ADHD librarian after all, you don't expect me to be organised and document everything do you?

So, in the time since I last wrote I've been the acting 2IC and now the acting Manager. Yes folks the library is going to hell in a hand basket with me at the helm.
I have a great team of people and they are helping me to cope with the fact that I am currently the top three people in the library.
There is just too much hat swapping when I can be in a meeting with the directors at 10:30 but then be doing storytime for some psycho 3 year olds at 11.
And on an ADHD note, I'm thinking it is time to dose myself to the eyeballs. I don't know how else I can manage to get anything done (let alone everything). As a children's librarian if you go a bit manic and roll on the floor growling, people assume you're doing it for the kiddies. As library manager people tend to have their suspicions as to my motives.

My old methods of just doing things until (by accident) something works and I get a reward, just doesn't cut it either. People expect the manager to be able to articulate a plan.

The library will do stuff. Isn't the mission statement the CEO wants.
If I get the job permanently I'll need to 'get my shit together' as they* say.
Still I've got Christmas to stuff my career up further by continuing to be me at work. I need some sort of method where I get a personality transplant as I walk through my office door.

*they in this case being wankers
