Remember this post? Where I said I didn't want advice?

I do, now. Please to advise me.

My vague idea at this point is to look into taking a class or two at a community college for next term (or, more realistically, winter term), either close to work (downtown Seattle) or close to home (Everett). This will get me back into the habit of school, and give me a chance to get in good with a professor or two to write me letters of rec. Then, I want to apply for UW's MLIS program again for the fall of '07. I'd rather go for the full-time program and work part-time (either here, since I know they do that with students, or somewhere else), since the distance program's a bit harder to get into (from what I've heard). That way, I can also keep contributing to the bills, since, well, we need me to.

So, yeah. Advice on that post where I asked for no advice? Please?

I think you know what you want to do. I don't see a questions so much as a: Is this okay?

Take classes if you feel like it, is there something more you want know? Is there a type of Library stuff you want to specify in? If so, take some classes that way (computers? History? Films? etc). But no classes are going ot help much with a Masters degree. Look into taking GRE's (I can't remember if you did yet or now). Also, looking for working with the program (getting paid to do what you're learning, stuff).

And good luck :) We'll always be here for support and stuff.

I agree, it sounds like you've got a plan already, babe. Yes, it is a little difficult to get back into school, even after one year off, so it could be useful to take some classes.

I heard that Antioch University was starting a MLIS program as well. I don't see anything on their website, but the UW one is notoriously hard to get into so you might want to look into that, too. In fact I have a lot of library geek friends so I should call them and find out for sure, myself.

it's from a singapore train station. Durians are notoriously stinky and it's so crowded, that having one on a train might cause some bad stuff.
