And I'm in!

The interview was a formality. I still went in nervous and came out wincing by things I'd found myself saying in the middle of it all, but in the end it turned out not to matter one way or the other. I got to fill out some paperwork and was told they'd have my official acceptance in the mail. Yay! I'm an official grad student!

Once again I'm reminded how little I knew going into this as an undergrad. Apparently there are courses one needs to have under one's belt in order to be certified as a school librarian. These courses are generally taken at the undergrad level (and, in fact, a major in education is vastly preferred over a major in, say, library science).
Oh well. All that means is that I'll need to take a few more credits in order to get certified, that's all. And I can do that while working as a librarian, I believe, as long as I'm being monitored from time to time so they know I'm not just letting the children run amuck.

From the movie, The Mummy:

Evelyn Carnahan: Look, I-I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell! But I am proud of what I am!

Rick O'Connell: And what is that?

Evelyn: I am ... a librarian!
