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.

  1. This is my own personal constant debate about grad school.

  2. Yep. I am in the same boat. I was looking at Kent State back here b/c they have a good library science program, but in the end it all comes down to getting a job.

    That always drove me crazy about San Diego. They had perhaps the worst public library system of any place I have lived so far. Even this shit hole I live in now has a better library system!
