Academic Tomfoolery

It's actually kind of sad that I don't have anything worthwhile to bog about, so I blog about my cat. That just goes to show that I have no life. None. Zip. Nada. Zilch. Okay, enough of that.

I'm sitting here in the law library doing nothing except surfing from one site to another. Wasting time and enjoying it to death.

I just can't leave well enough alone. I've been looking at the IUPUI website looking into two possiblities: paralegal certification and/or (parish this thought!) and MA in Poli Sci. Why do I even tempt myself with such nuttiness? Umm, hello, I've just about finished my MLS, it took me two years, nonstop, but I've reached the proverbial end of the tunnel, I've got one,ONE! class left, and here I go thinking about more schooling. I should have a rootcanal into my head and see what's wrong with my noodle. However, I am going to be applying for a job at IUPUI. It will be at the law library, but it will be a full time position that would allow me, if I so chose to either have something of a life and/or continue to work at BN on a parttime basis. But if I was to get the job and the full time bennies I would be able to get a discount on classes. See, its all part of my plot, what plot that might be, I haven't the foggiest.

The paralegal certification is 27 hours, plus three for "intro to law" one of those blasted "prereqs." The MA is 33 hours with a thesis. That "T" word is the one that makes me pause. The idea of even attempting a thesis makes my head spin and my stomach knot.

I've always been fascinated by politics,those many blood suckers, I'm not very politcally active, but I find the theatre of politics to be good fun and quite entertaning. But I'm afraid that my somewhat right of center political views might cause problems. Ah well. I need to sit down and talk to someone about these silly ideas I have in my head. Hopefully that someone will be abel to disuade me from taking this foolhardy road.

Or you could just take the job for now and see where that leads. School is always a possibility.
