I realize that when I say I regularly help people get their first email address ever and someone replies, "I'm immensely grateful that people like you are patient enough to teach people to use email," they mean it as a compliment. But it never comes across that way.
Here is a picture of me at convocation this weekend. I really do have an MSLIS now! HUZZAH. (this is the converse of POIDH. :D) (Notes: the person next to me with the curly hair is my upstate NY job/philosophical doppelganger; the one next to her is checking a picture she took on her phone, not her email!)
Just turned in my very last assignment for cataloging. Got my final grade for my internship today. Guess that means I'm 100 percent, absolutely, completely, and FINALLY done, other than the crossed t's and dotted i's and rituals of actually graduating? I figure it will sink in sometime in the next couple of hours.... :)
