“If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
When I was in fifth grade I decided I was going to be an author. When I was fifteen, determined to get a job, I went to a bookstore. When I settled into a career I became a Young Adult Librarian.
I still carry a little spark of hope that someday my fifth grade dream will become reality. And that bookstore? I worked in it for nine years. The discount was a dangerous temptation; it kept me there longer than was probably wise. As for the library, a decade later and it remains a wholly fulfilling job.
“What you are is a complicated girl with simple needs. You need your books and time to read, and you need a few friends and you need someone—not to take care of you, but to care for you. If you have all those things, you’ll always be alright.”
“Breakable You” by Brian Morton
