Marion- the Librarian

I have determined that my lifelong dream is to be.... (drumroll please) a LIBRARIAN!! As I get further in school and a continual bombardment of "So what are you going  to do with your degree?" is thrown my way I can't but help but cogitate on my future. 

Now just because I have come to the conclusion that I would love to be a librarian it doesn't mean that it's ever going to happen. It's just kind of nice to have an idea of what I would like to do. I feel comfortable around books and I think I would get a great amount of pleasure at doling out books to those who have the same love I do for books. So as I consider my future, I can't help but wonder what I will do... to make this dream of mine an actuality?

...Perhaps Grad school... or not.

As referenced to in the title of this post I must address the source of my inspiration for this dream of mine. There is a scene for "The Music Man" that I love. When Marion, the town librarian, gets serenaded (if it can be considered that) by the Prof. Harold Hill (who is actually a con man). Maybe, subconscously, I too want to have an attractive guy chase me around the library singing and making my heart pound skip a beat.  And besides.... I really want to try out one of those rolling ladders!

All in all, it's kind of nice to have a dream. Something that could possibly be attained by... well me. So now as I posed earlier... what will I do to make this dream of mine a reality? And then I have to wonder... will a guy ever chase me around a library?

Here's the scene from The Music Man... the Shirley Jones version of course.

P.S. I'm not sure if the link is going to work- if not and you're just DYING to watch it... just youtube it.


  1. I think becoming Marian the Librarian would quite possibly the most awesome career choice ever. Can I join you? Except I really don't want to go to grad school...

  2. yes, do it! In the mean time, I will dream of watching all of the music man, since I did not bring that to Russia!

  3. I think you should become Nicole the librarian, and instead of a con man, you would be chased around the library by a rich venture capitalist! He could use his immense riches that he acquired 'capitalizing ventures', or whatever it is they do, to pay off your student loans from grad school.

  4. Don't do it. Being a librarian is not all it's cracked up to be!! Trust me. hahaha
    Naw, just all the people who work there and GO there, are crazy. lol. But, maybe, just maybe, if you can find a rolling ladder library there will be significantly less weird people. :)hahahaha. You make me smile inside. Good luck with your dreams!

  5. If you want some guy to chase you around a library, I'm sure I could arrange something.
