Librarian - Now With Fresh Mint

An announcement - I'm done with grad school!!! The work is done, the grades are in, and graduation was this weekend. I'm a freshly minted librarian, complete with an MLIS after my name (for Masters of Library and Information Science), courtesy of the University of Pittsburgh. Woo-hoo!

Big thanks to the following folks, who in their own way supported me in this endeavor: The Husband (Our Gold Star Winner, who showed a good deal of patience that he didn't know he had, picking up the housework and errands while I worked full time and did part-time grad school); The Parents (who are both deathly afraid I've fallen in love with Pittsburgh and will move there, and are wondering if/when I'll do a PhD); The Husband's Parents (who understood, or at least tolerated, the homework and blogging during holidays such as Thanksgiving); The Two Awesome Fellow Students, Christyne and Julie (who suffered along with me); The Workplace (for assorted support, and writing the grant); The Other Classmates, esp. the ones who kicked a** on group projects; The Professors; The Internet; Everybody else I've been largely ignoring for the past two years (wanna get a beer?).
