I have completed all twelve of the courses in my graduate program. At times it felt like this day would never come. I am now, officially, a librarian!
From the beginning, it was a bit overwhelming and scary, but it has also been a truly rewarding and exciting experience. To be honest, it all still feels a bit surreal to be finished. Perhaps it won’t really hit me until I have the degree in hand come May 20th. What does feel real, though, is the excitement I have for what is next. I’m excited to be able to fully focus on my career and my personal adventures. I know that in a few months I’ll probably start to wonder what I can do next with my time, but in the meantime I’m looking forward to NYC Marathon training and catching up on a long list of books to read! I wish I had some deep thoughts to share or something along those lines but I feel like I’ve shared those thoughts throughout the process. And honestly, I’m looking forward to just enjoying this next stage, whatever it may bring. Just a special thanks, though, to all my friends and family who supported me throughout this transition in my life. Not sure I could have done it without them. Beers on me. 🙂
