    My Career Path

    I've been meaning to post this for a few days but kept forgetting until now. I'm living with my mother again (moved in in June), and after a while she suggested things I could try doing to keep myself occupied or whatever, and one of those was going to school to become a Librarian, and I've...

    Work Problems

    Hi Everyone, I am going through such a nightmare and would normally never open up about it to anyone except maybe a couple of family members. But I thought someone here may have some good advice for me and I might be able to eventually help someone else with that information, so here goes: I'm...
