Hello, everyone! My name is Brieanna (I like to go by Brie, like the cheese!) and I’m a fellow book nerd, like you! I’m a lot of other things too, such as: a recent transplant from the northeast (NY) to the southwest (AZ), city girl by nature but nature lover at heart, bookish fudge-colored bibliophile, book nerd, a UAlbany MSIS Alum, solo traveler, foodie, proud indie bookstore advocate & supporter, jazz aficionado, library visitor, tea drinker, cat lover and all things cutesy and Etsy!

Greetings fellow job seekers!
I’d like to preface my blog entries by saying a big “thank you” to The Tipsy Librarian, who invited me to write a few entries on her blog. So, thanks again for the opportunity!
First off, a bit about myself:
I’m originally from Wisconsin. So, think of cheese, beer, hunting, flannel, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. In 2009, I received my BA from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. My area of concentration was Russia/Eastern Europe, something I’m still passionate about. After I graduated from college, I moved around quite a bit working various and sundry jobs. Fast forward a few years. In 2017, I enrolled at McGill University as a graduate student in the School of Information Studies. In June 2019, I graduated with my Master of Information Studies degree. I’ve been looking for jobs since last summer. It’s a very slow, frustrating process, for sure; however, things will get better.
It makes me feel good to know that there are others still going through the job search process. So, I know I’m not alone. I feel like we’re all in this together. While the job hunt sucks, it is a necessary evil. And until the day arrives when you get the phone call or email offering you a job, it’ll be a tough enterprise. It will get better though! I think that’s enough for now.
More to follow….stay tuned!
