Okay, I realize I haven’t posted in a very long time. Things have been incredibly busy. I took three classes last semester (crazy me!), all of which were pretty tough. I got sick early on (pre-bronchitis, pre-pneumonia, etc.) and I got behind. It was really hard to get caught up after that. I was starting to lose steam as well. I have gone straight through grad school so far, so that’s not too surprising. I was really worried toward the end of last semester that I would have a C in one of my classes. I knew it wouldn’t be all A’s, but I wasn’t so sure it would be A’s & B’s either. After grades were posted, I logged onto SOAR– fingers crossed and eyes closed. I was so scared. BUT I came out with an A, an A-, and a B-. I’LL TAKE IT!!!! This was my first B of graduate school. While I know that I don’t have to have perfect grades all the time, I was so afraid that having a bad grade was going to define my whole career as a librarian. I felt that if I made a bad grade, it meant I wasn’t going to make a good librarian in the long run. I honestly don’t know why I was so scared– it’s not the end of the world. Anyhow, it’s over and done with, and guess what!! I am THREE CLASSES AWAY from my Master’s!!!!!!! I decided, though, that I was tired of killing myself over so much schoolwork, so I am just going to take one class each semester from now on. I had wanted to take the Public Libraries class and the other core class in the fall and take the summer off, but they are¬†offering¬†Public Libraries this summer only, so I have to take it. So then I’ll take LIS 636 in the Fall, and do my Master’s project in the spring and be done! Woohoo!!

In other news, I have applied for the library media specialist position at Greenville High School. the chances that I will get it are likely slim, but I would be a fool not to try for it at least. I know that’s not the route I had intended to take with my career, but if it gets me a job I’ll take it. Fingers crossed on this one too!
