I realise I have not updated my blog in some time. In fact, I have not been updating with any regularity since beginning this blog.
It is with some sadness that I report I am no longer the Great Northern Librarian. Due to the expiration of my work permit, I have left the UK and am not working in the far north of Scotland.
I am currently unemployed, which isn’t as bad as it sounds as I am forunate to have a good friend who is allowing me to stay with him in Damascus, Syria, until I figure out my next move. I have been here a little over a week now and am currently job hunting. I would like to stay in Syria for at least a few months in order to learn basic Arabic, so I have been applying for English teaching jobs. As luck would have it, there is an international school in Syria recruiting for a certified librarian for next academic year.
