What am I studying again?

After receiving many questions, I have realized that I never actually shared what I'll be studying at Grad School.
Library and Information Sciences, that's it. I might try and get a specialization in Archives and Record Management too. Basically I want to be an academic librarian or a librarian at a historical society or something like that. The program is really great too, because it helps you become more technologically advanced, plus they have something like 24 libraries at the University of Michigan so lots of opportunities to work part time and internship opportunities

I actually went to Ann Arbor a couple of weekends ago. It was visiting days for the School of Information. I got a tour of downtown Ann Arbor (complete with a listing of all the bars and their happy hours, not so helpful) I got to meet a lot of new and great people I might be studying with. I looked at housing and found a possible roommate. I got to see an old Brighton friend whose husband is going to school there also and I got to see an insiders view of the area (including some dang good Thai food!). Mostly, I fell in love with Ann Arbor and the University. I'm pretty dang excited for school.

Meanwhile, I'm working full time and part time saving up as much money as possible, because I am going to be a really, really poor student pretty soon.
