I have spent the last 2 days rushing around trying to complete my application to Syracuse University’s MS Library and Information Science program.
Seeing as I already have an M.Ed., I wasn’t really planning on going back for another Masters, but this program at Syracuse seems really awesome – totally into 21st Century Literacy and very forward thinking. Clearly just the right program for my new job at International School Bangkok.
Plus, it has the added advantage of enabling me to work in a public or university library, if I so desire, sometime in the future.
I always say – if I end up going back to the states (not likely), I would want to work in a university, like my friend Lisa, who works at Yale (she’s a smarty-pants – when I grow up, I want to be just like her). I have this imaginary expectation that university staff get more vacation time than the standard (and pitiful) 2 weeks that everyone else in the US is allowed. Seriously, how can you live on 2 weeks vacation?
So, here’s a question for all you expats out there: if you were moving back to your home country, what would you do for work? Would it be the same thing that you’re doing overseas? Or something fun and new?
