Teens in the library and how I’m getting old

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

I have what I like to call “Teen Tuesdays” at my library. Every Tuesday there is a program just for teens. They don’t have to remember a whole bunch of days during the month. All they need to know is that if its a Tuesday and its 3:30, the room is theirs. Today they came in extra early, so I decided to open up the room early. We all went in there (I think there were about twenty of them) at about 1:45 and they were crazy! At 3:30, I was exhausted, so I sent them away. I should be amazed at what comes out of their mouths, but then I remember what I was like as a teenager… I think I’m glad that they are comfortable around me, but then again, do they respect me as an adult? What kinds of boundaries do I need to set, besides the obvious ones? I must say that I’m glad I can get so many enthusiastic teens in the library on a Tuesday afternoon in the summer, and I’m glad that they like me. Of course they just have so much energy, that it gets emotionally exhausting… is that possible?
Anyway, I’m glad to be back in the blogsphere. I need to do this more often. Of course I say that a lot, don’t I?
