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.
