I wanted to be a librarian.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When little kids are asked this question, they always say something outlandish like “cowboy” or “president” or “astronaut”. Little kids and their imaginations, right? I wish it was easier to hang on to that easy flexibility of the mind.

When I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a librarian.


At least I was being practical?

Don’t get me wrong, librarians are the bomb — you’d just think I could be a little more imaginative.

(Of course, this wasn’t the only thing I wanted to be as a kid — I wanted to be a princess and a wildlife protector and a photographer and…)

But yes, I wanted to be a librarian, and some part of me still wants to be one. You get to be surrounded by books, and people who love books, all day long!

Librarians get stereotyped, but I like to think they’re some of the hippest people around. Intelligent, well-dressed, friendly; let’s face it, librarians are pretty sexy 😉

And, if your name is Marian, you get to dance and sing to your own song!

Are you a librarian? Was my kindergarten self correct in that it’s, like, the best job ever?
