The first day of class in my MLIS program involves the usual student introductions. The typical questions are:
"How far are you into the program?" --- My last semester.
"What's your favorite ice cream?" --- Edys Applie Pie Ice Cream (it's 'Limited Edition' for a reason!)
"What kind of library are you planning to work at?" --- Anywhere but public ones. That usually results in some snickering, but I'm being completely honest.
Don't get me wrong, I love the public library institution and what it stands for but I believe I have had my fill of it. I would like to work at an academic library, best of both worlds for me. I love the feeling of a college campus, good vibes man, good vibes.
My coworker/friend and I had a running joke that we would both end up stuck at the public library. She will be starting at a special library next week... FML.
