I’m Going Places


Among other reasons that I have not been prioritizing posting to my blog as I so earnestly declared that I would, is this: after a fall and winter of applications and recommendations and campus visits, I have officially accepted an offer to join an MLIS program this fall.

Within six months, here is where you will find me: iSchool at the University of Pittsburgh

Yes, it’s back to school for me for a librarian’s degree. And before you tell me that print is dead (–Egon), let me assure you that I have studied this subject a great deal and that all information schools are heavily digital these days, and as far as concerns the ability of libraries to sustain themselves, we know more than you.

Now I just have to finish up my job here, move to Pittsburgh and uproot my entire life! (…Yikes.)

    OMG. I’m so so so jealous. I considered this for so long! I was very interested in Drexel’s program since that’s really convenient to me. But I put it off and put it off to start my family and now here I am and I feel like it’s just too late. Especially since I’m very close to hopefully starting that family. Good luck and congratulations on your acceptance!!

      Hey, I have lots of friends in grad school who have small children. I have no idea HOW they do it, but the possibility does exist!

      Got any tips for a future Pennsylvanian?

        Move to Philly? Just kidding. 🙂

        I’ve only been to Pittsburgh once but from I saw it was a pretty fun city. Sorry I can’t offer you more advice but I think you’ll like it!
