My niece’s had their birthdays this week, I hope they had a great time!

A quiet week at work. I spent a lot of time working on my JavaScript skills. We said goodbye to a coworker who is heading out on a new adventure. And I learned more about using my Strengths in life.

Spent a lot of time with friends this weekend. Went to a grand opening of a second location of a local gaming store, too. This one is quite near me. I even bought my first unpainted mini for a new D&D campaign I joined earlier this month. (And ordered a second.) I then spent a heck of a lot of time watching painting videos by my friend Vince. Painting my Cleric list.

On a similar note, instead of books, I switched over to a podcast this week. Critical Role podcast on Geek and Sundry.

We had a great week at the library. My branch had two events, one special story time and one big party. Our community also had a march on Monday that a handful of staff and volunteens participated in. It was a good week of coming together and celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of peace and equality, and remembering that some things are worth fighting for.

On the job front, I got one more rejection, and one more interview scheduled. Need to do a bit more looking around after I get this posted. Still working my way through Javascript lessons, and I attended a webinar on Caring for Photographic Collections this week. Coming up is another OhioDIG meeting at the State Library.

I had a nice couple of nights hanging out with friends this weekend. Today I’m doing some housecleaning, laundry, and maybe putting away Christmas, having received my final presents from Amazon yesterday.

On the audiobook front, I finished Green Rider. Then I listened to two excellent books recommended by my aunt, Mary who heard about them from her son, Jonathon: Binti and Binti Home by Nnedi Okorafor. Then, I went back for a bit more Mists of Avalon.
