Eeeeeep! And happy Thanksgiving!

So, I just registered to take the GRE on January 7th. I also sent out the emails soliciting letters of recommendation. These are the first definitive steps towards me applying to UW's MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) program. Basically, they're the first big-honkin' steps toward becoming a librarian.

It's what I want to do. I've always liked my jobs in the library, or anything involving books. I want to be a middle-school or high-school librarian. I know I'm setting myself up for a lot of frustration and all - seeing as the public school systems are thoroughly screwed at this point, and are likely to continue to be that way - but I want to feel like I'm making a difference. If I can make one kid find one book that touches him or her somehow, I'll consider myself successful.

And now, for the happy Thanksgiving part of this post...I have so much to be thankful for. My friends, my job (especially the fact that I *have* one right now), my family, and of course, Eric. And the kitties - must not forget the kitties. So thank you for being a part of my life. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you all.

Now, to rest before attempting to go to work (for the first time since leaving early on Tuesday - massive amounts of suckage on the illness front, but methinks I've finally got it licked. And if I'm not feeling better/'right' (there's really no other way to put it - I'm feeling ill, and not 'right') by Monday, I promise I'll go to the doctor.
