This Bird Does It

Librarian ramblings

Journey to become a Librarian

I’ve always said I’d get a tattoo if I could make up my mind about what and where I wanted it, and didn’t change my mind for two years. I don’t have a tattoo, yet.

It will be more than seven years from the time I started thinking about pursuing an MLIS until I receive it in December. This time I made up my mind. I don’t actually remember making the decision to do this. It’s as though it was always something I had to do and I finally got around to it.

I’m certain that I have found the right field for me. For a while I lamented that I did not find this career when I was younger, right out of undergrad, but not anymore. I have no regrets about the way things have played out. I’m where I’m supposed to be at the time I’m supposed to be. Now I’ll just push forward and try to remain open to what God has in mind for me.

These days I’m finishing one last class, and planning for graduation on December 18th. I’m carefully checking job listings and occasionally applying for things that look interesting. I’m continuing to volunteer for Hamma Library at Trinity Lutheran Seminary, where I did my internship last summer. If you know of any opportunities I should investigate, please pass them along.

Here, I’ll leave some professional links, just in case anyone is interested.
