January 10, 2012 Workin’ in the digital coal mine.
Well I’m never going to be a librarian. San Diego is a library-hostile town, the public libraries are always being cut and the academic libraries aren’t doing much better. It’s clear that I’d have to take a job in some distant land, not necessarily a bad place, just a different place and moving just isn’t an option, Melissa’s career comes first.
There goes alternate career Plan A and there ain’t a Plan B. Now I don’t have to worry about grad school interfering with the next novel. So I’ll stick it out at this QC job which isn’t using my capabilities but I’m also lucky to have.
So I’m thinking about other masters degrees to go for, database architect or interface design maybe. But I gotta wonder if grad school isn’t throwing good money after bad.
