In the Hallway

The library management class lasts most of the day some Saturdays from 9-3.  But our online professor of instructional technology dropped in to make a few comments and hand back some papers (old school, I know!) then asked me to come talk to him in the hall.

Was I in trouble?  Had I been too much of a dick on the discussion boards?

Nope.  He told me he was impressed with my critical thinking and analysis in our last assignment and had I considered pursuing Ph.D level work in the field?

I'm hoping here that I thanked him and chatted with him in some approximation of normal English, because in my mind I was seeing the top of my head blow off.

Not one to jump into anything too blindly, I asked the library management professor for their take after class.  Realistic and thoughtful advice that will serve me well as I ponder my options.

So I don't know that I'm pursuing doctoral studies in the immediate future, but man oh man what a motivator (and yes, ego boost) as I continue my studies.
