Opportunity knockers.....

I'm still sick, but I'm slightly more pleasant than I was this morning. I took a wicked 3-hour nap today, and I was afraid I wouldn't sleep tonight, but thanks to Tylenol Allergy Sinus I'll be off to sleepy-land sooner than expected.

After I surfaced from my blissful unconsciousness today I checked my e-mail, and I've officially been offered a graduate assistantship. Woot! I'll start off tutoring 20 hours a week in the writing center (worked there as an undergraduate), and after I get 18 hours of Masters credit I'll be in the classroom. Although it's frowned upon, I'm planning to keep my job at the junior college as well. Shhh! Don't tell anyone. Do you know what else this assistantship means??? INSURANCE!!!! Triple woot!

  17. Amanda,
    I'm doing an MA in English now, and I plan to do my MLIS later. A couple of uni's have it online, so if I get a full-time teaching position I'll have time to work on the MLIS in my spare time. I'll have spare time!! :oD
