Hey now!

So I finally graduated back in December. Two years of non-stop school with two jobs the last year, pregnant wife and then Owen for the last semester. Hard to believe I actually made it through.

So I am now at 38 job applications/resumes sent out. I've received about a dozen rejections (or at least no word at all since this past Fall), and I've managed two interviews. Both interviews were at public libraries, coincidentally. I have a feeling it will be an uphill climb to get a first job in an academic library. I have good references, and of course I work in an academic library.

Next week I begin training as a Starbucks Barista. I know, I sounds ludicrous. But it should be an interesting experience, and the money is better than the free coffee! I'm sure I'm not the only Barista with a Master's Degree out there, either.
