You know how it goes - What are you studying? What do you plan to do? I braced myself for the skeptical look as I started talking about getting my Masters in English and how I wanted to go on to be an editor somewhere. The look that says "I can't believe you would waste money going to graduate school for English. Why not do something serious with your life?" She actually took it quite well. I guess an aspiring editor in Nashville is way better than someone trying to be the next Carrie Underwood.
Look at her repping those Sigma letters. Miss Carrie loves her sorority, and so do I. Sigma love and mine.
It's nice to be in a place where getting a Master's degree in English is not the most frivolous thing one can do with their time and money. I may spend the rest of my life debating the same books that have been debated for centuries, but at least you'll never see me with big hair, singing bitter songs about my ex-boyfriends. I think that means I win.
