This afternoon I got an email from a library teacher at another school thinking about applying for my job, and with a list of questions. This is exactly what I was hoping to avoid for awhile-- it makes me so melancholy. I specifically hadn't let the other librarians know yet for this very reason. My job can't even be advertised for a little while and I was really hoping to not have to do this until absolutely necessary.
It's going to be a really tough spring, I think.
