Since graduation, I've been looking for a job in my field. That would be museum or archival work, historic preservation, anything along those lines. Surprisingly there is plenty of work like this in my area since I'm not willing to relocate at this point. The down side, is that the jobs require either a Bachelors Degree with tons of experience or a Masters with a little less experience.
Can you see where this is going? I'm thinking a Master's Degree is in my future. I'm not willing to settle for a job that I could do prior to getting my B.A. That would be silly. So, I've started looking around for a school with a curriculum I'd be interested in. Luckily, there are many colleges in my area, one in particular that would get me the degree I need and want. Here's where there will be an ironic twist of fate. For as many of you know, during college football season, I'm a huge Notre Dame fan. Looks like I may become alumni of Penn State should I decide to pursue my Master's Degree. No laughing!
