Oh, I Suppose I Should Mention

I was accepted into grad school this week. I am such a geek. I'm going to be paying a lot of money to learn how to be a librarian. I've wanted to do this for a long time, but various things got in the way. A few months back I came to these conclusions:

1. I'm 30 years old and I'm not getting any younger.
2. I'm single. I'll probably single forever, but at least right now I don't have to worry about putting food on the table for a family.
3. I was scared of school after my failed attempts at: a. Student teaching and b. Seminary. It was high time to get back on that horse and ride it.
4. My brain was starting to atrophy from nonlearning.

So, I applied. Took the Gre (didn't do so hot), got my transcripts and letters of recommendation and sent it all in and on Tuesday I received a big fat envelope with a letter that said I was accepted in the Library Science Masters Program at
IUPUI, or Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis. I start this summer. I'll take it slow, at least at the start. A class or two. I need to get my feet wet before I jump all in.
