Feast or famine

Quite recently, I was feeling disappointed that I didn’t have any library coding projects to work on. I felt I was failing at my goal of bringing more code into my academic librarianship.

But things change quickly. I’m not sure what happened, but over the course of last week, five(!) new programming projects landed on my plate. It’s far too much to work on at once. I’m not sure if this recent influx was due to a change in mindset, or the regular turnover of the semester cycle, or maybe just randomness. Nonetheless it is very welcome.

This abrupt switch from too few projects to too many has me thinking that maybe much is beyond my control. I can try to be open, engaged and active, but that isn’t always sufficient to bring in the projects that I want to work on. Sometimes it just takes patience and good luck.
