I see the Light at the end of the Tunnel!

For those that were not aware, I’ve spent the last three years working on my graduate degree. This is my last semester in the Master’s of Library and Information Science program, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It will be a bittersweet ending for me, because I have actually enjoyed myself for the most part. I’ve learned a lot, met a lot of interesting people, and became aware of sects of the library world that I wasn’t aware of before.

I’m in a contemplative mood today for more than one reason. The first being that I’m almost done. May 3 is graduation and it will be here before I know it. Second, I completed the Comprehensive Exam, which means I had one week to research and write a 10 page paper. I had initially made a bigger deal out of this than I should have, but anticipation is usually worse than reality. When I submitted it last night, I felt more confident than ever. My ability to keep it together fairly well (depending on who you ask) has caused me to pause and really think about what I’m capable of. The third and final reason, since I’ll be homework and research free in a couple months, I have begun to contemplate what to do with my time. This is a problem I usually have at the end of a semester. For the first few days, I don’t know what to do with myself because I’m used to homework being there for me when I get home from work.

But no more! The world is my oyster and all that jazz. *raises eyebrow* I guess I could get started on that 3 page long To Do list I’ve been compiling and start working through that stack of books…
