Working at Your College Library, in Gifs

1. You genuinely don’t understand why people have so much trouble finding books.
2. People ask if you know the best study spots in the library. OBVIOUSLY you do, but you’ll never tell.
"Omg haha no I don't stay here! I like to study in the dining hall!!!"
3. You’ve gotten to the point where you’ll dance in the stacks while you shelve books and do not care if someone sees you.
Yeah, I'm jumping up and down lip synching. This is MY territory. 
4. When you have a late shift and your supervisor has you shelf reading or shelving in the basement
5. You know the feeling when one of your friends starts walking over to the desk
OMG yay my friends love me!!!
6. Until you start talking to them about weekend plans and then they say “So I’m looking for this book for my history class?”
They do not love me :/
7. Your crush will approach the desk with a huge stack of books and you’ll pray the system doesn’t work so they have to make small talk
I have to pretend I don't know their name/year/major/hometown/pet's name???
8. You’ve had to push an old, loud, awful wooden cart through a quiet room at least once
Ugh everyone needs to stop being so uptight! Like chill! *sobs internally*
9. And someone you know probably took a snapchat of you doing it
Haha yeah that was soooo funny! *still sobbing*
10. It probably ended up in some groupmes. And on facebook.
Someone is going to bring this out at my wedding. I know it. It's never going away. 
10. Someone will check out a book and one look at the title will make you feel inadequate.
11. At some point, a professor that made your life a living hell for a semester will approach the desk and you have to muster all your strength not to be an a**hole to them
12. When someone comes over to the desk and asks if you can get a book for them
13. You’ve probably thought that staying at school and working over a short break was a good idea
(and you had to justify an excessive online shopping habit)

14. And then when you had no human contact for 4 days you realized how stupid that was
Ok, maybe you didn't talk to a volleyball, but you def talked to your mom like 20 times and probably talked to a random statue. 
15. That feeling when you’re finally entrusted with the library golf cart so you can drive books around campus
Especially when you won't give them rides. 
16. You’ve inevitably had to go to work hungover at some point.
Will anyone notice if I'm wearing sunglasses at the circulation desk??
16. Even though you have a love/hate relationship with the library, you know it’s the best job any college student could have.
