What do you do with a B.A. in English?

A librarian?

I took a career counceling test a few weeks back, and am just now getting to dealing with what it's telling me. And it said I should be a librarian. Now, to be fair, it told me to be about a half-dozen thinks in addition to being a librarian; technical writer, computer programmer, and college professor being among the big hits. But Librarian, eh? That's the one that convinced me, in one word, that career counceling wasn't a waste of time. That's the "oh hey, I hadn't thought of that" option. The nerve-striker, if you will, in a good way of course.

O'course, it means going to grad school. And I'm going to max out at 50K a year, most likely. And libraries are occatioanlly haunted. But hell, it sounds like fun all the same. Like the good parts of working at a book store.

Showing people where things are, and shelving things. These are fun. Making space for ten thousand boxes of kids books... that's where hell lives.
