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!
