Just a Scifi Kid Like Me

Sooo I just got my first box with my name on it as the Scifi Curator at work.

And it hit me: I'm the Scifi Girl now.

Whoa.

I mean, I'm looking at the bookcases filled with stuff Hal passed to me, and I have a load of boxes of stuff to process and file away and I have a student working on sleeving pulps right now, and I got a call from a guy asking about a donation yesterday and my boss is talking to me about finding "jewels" and manuscripts for the collection, and--yeah.

(At the risk of sounding like Keanu:) Whoa.

Going to meet with my mentor next week to talk about going up for tenure and pursuing the phd. I've been contemplating working on a phd for a while and if I take two classes at a time I could get it out of the way in five years, -ish, and could probably recycle term papers for articles at the same time. In my subfield the extra credential is really nice, so we'll see.

This is AWESOME. Your Sci-fi Girl superhero costume is in the mail.

...No. It's not. That was a lie.

you rock. I know when I was still working in the pre-school, the first month there is was so weird to have little kids walk and call me teacher Shannon.

Titles are a weird but awesome thing. You could never sound like this:

You're to smart.
