This is where I work:

Except there is a computer up at that chair now. I usually sit there, but sometimes I sit at the other chair by the main circulation express check-out we have. I like that one better, because circulation is fun. But it is a nice place. It meaning the Hum Ref desk. My coworkers are awesome. One of them is Whitney and Roxanne's roommate, Lauren. She is pretty cool. Jeff is the other new guy. It is us three who are the ones who are brand new. There are other really cool people too, like Naarah and Andrew and Tyler and Brooke and Tristan and Val. And of course all the librarians. I hope I didn't forget anyone. I'd feel bad if I did. We have fun, chatting, hanging out, helping people with their reference questions. I was actually by myself at the desk for a bit today and helped like 5 people. It was rockin'. Maybe one day I'll actually be fully trained and feel like I know what I'm doing. I always kinda feel like a secret agent when I clock in and when I go into the workroom. And I love helping people find books in the stacks. But that's probably because I love books and I love people too. Anyway. I like this job-place of mine.

Today, Chris, the Art Librarian/Humanities Department Chair stopped by. I was doing something--really easy thing, like checking out headphones or something--and she said, "Wow! Look at her! She looks like she works here!" ;) She is awesome. Anyway. Moral of the story: the Hum Ref desk is clearly the best desk in the library, so come on up and visit. 5th floor. I think I like my job. :)

Okay, you've convinced me to come and visit. The Hum Ref desk just seems like the place to work. I wish I worked there... ;)
