The Graduate (no not the movie)


So I haven't posted in a loooooong time. There goes one of my New Year's resolutions about blogging and reading more books in the juvenile and young adult sections. Now, I did have a valid reason for the breaking my resolutions. (I love how I'm reasoning on here). I was taking my two final graduate classes. One was a graduate elective and the other was the Master project class. On top of the requirements of both classes, I had to complete a comprehensive exam. ((((Whewwww))))))
On May 8, I graduated with a Master's in library and information science. I felt so many emotions post graduation. I hate to use a Stan Lee Spiderman thing but---here it goes...."With great power comes great responsibility". I find myself contemplating my next career/professional goal. As I sat behind the newly hooded Ph.Ds, I said to myself "I'm one row away from being one of those people." I sincerely want to be the best person I can be and offer my best to those I meet.

Congratulations Mara! I came across your blog while doing a search on my mother's name, Virgia Brocks-Shedd. I saw your posting last year marking your receipt of the fellowship in her name. I wish you all the best in your next endeavors. If you have questions about the process of getting a Ph.D. (mine is in sociology), I am more than happy to be a resource.
