Four years ago when I wrote this post, I shared that I had finally begun working on Master’s degree. It has been a very long journey (mostly because I have had to go to school part time and work full time) and it always took a toll on the blog. It was always me juggling school, work (two jobs at the same time at two different points since I’ve had this blog), blogging, family, and my personal life. Graduate school is a grueling piece of work that I’m not sure I’d wish on anyone. But I just turned in the last final paper I will ever write and I will soon be able to really call myself a librarian (you can’t technically call yourself a librarian unless you have this specialized degree).
Someone recently had asked me what my inspiration behind my Literary take on Fashion series was – and really it was just trying to find a way to integrate my passion for books into this blog. Not really related to thriftyness, so I hope you all don’t mind. But I’ve been dropping some big hints along the way.
Like my side blog where I talk about Multicultural picture books and the racism that prevails in many of them.
Or my other side inspiration blog Beautiful with Books – sharing pictures of all kinds of women reading books.
Then there’s my Goodreads profile where you can see what I’m currently reading.
My passion is for books, bringing literacy to people of all cultures, and now with my degree, I’m excited for whatever the future has in store. Thanks for coming along with me on this roller coaster.
PS. If you are interested in the program I did, click here. It is a completely online Master’s program through a real university. I encourage you to take a look if you’ve ever been curious about working in a library – they really need people who are minorities or can speak languages other than English.
PPS. Thank you to everyone who entered the Splendid giveaway, it is now closed! A winner will be announced very soon :)
