When I got home last night my husband said, "It must feel good to be done." But I must confess, it doesn't feel like anything. I guess after 3 years I was expecting it to feel like some huge weight was lifted or some miraculous change took place but I have passed into the world of librarianship without so much as a pomp or a circumstance.
It probably didn't help that yesterday was my first official day of work for the year and it was a day from hell. My summer curriculum support order was screwed up and I had people complaining to me all day about union and schedule issues. It was just another day like any other. The fact that I earned a masters degree made no difference in my life or the rotation of the earth around the sun.
I guess I will just have to go make a difference in the way I use the degree. At least now when I sign librarian after my name for work I won't feel guilty anymore like I'm telling a lie. I really am the librarian now.
