>Wish me luck! I’ve got a job interview on November 10th at a university in Seoul. If I were fortunate enough to beat out all the other fine applicants and actually get this job, it would definitely be a step up, career-wise. Also, I’d be in Seoul and muchmuchmuch closer to BOOKLEAVES, my beloved book group. Not to mention several well-stocked bookstores.
Last night though, I realized fully ALL the implications of what this could mean if things go well: This university has probably (without having clapped eyes upon it or researched the matter, I’m nearly 80-90% sure) got a library that goes past 799! A lovely-smelling library with 800s and 900s and novels and biographies…could it be? Finally? A book group AND several bookstores AND a complete library? My mind boggles at the thought of these riches being right within my bibliomanic grasp.
I’m euphoric at the moment, but by the time the interview rolls around, I’ll be panicked and nervous. I must stay calm and keep my eye on the prize. The thing is, how do I work a question about the library into my interview and manage to sound sane and intelligent and not like I’m just dying to get at their books?
