A New Path?

2020 has certainly been a year, more for some than others. In the last couple of months, I’ve had time to read, reflect, and take in the knowledge that those more experienced than me in some respects.

In reading The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll, I found guidance for project management and reflection, as well as a personal challenge to meditate on a challenge Ryder put forth (not a true challenge, but one that really got me thinking): what is something you’ve always wanted to do but never pursued for whatever reason.

For the past several years, I’ve yearned to be a professional (read paid) research assistant or person who gets paid to look up and research random topics. As an Academic Librarian, I kinda do this now, but not on the scale I want. I work at a small, commuter state college where research papers tend to all be about the same 15 topics. Occassionally a professor working on their dissertation have come to me personally for help looking for books, ebooks, articles, etc. I love working with those professors on those projects.

So how am I going to take up the “challenge” of becoming that type of researcher? I’m going to use my blog to share fun facts, resources, pictures, video links, my thoughts, etc. on a variety of topics as they pop into my brain.

I’ve downloaded the app for this blog onto my phone which is making blogging more accessible now. There are some limitations but I’ll work around them as best I can.

This doesn’t mean I’m completely going in a new direction. I’m still writing and self-publishing books, knitting, making YouTube videos, reading whatever book catches me. I hope you enjoy some of what I post.

See y’all in the next post! ~Cori
