I loved my career as a librarian. I ended up in high school libraries for over 20 years mostly because I have a low tolerance for boredom and adolescents are never boring.
However, I still have the “collection” bug. I love to handle the actual “things” – books and more.
If I had to pick a similar career these days, I’d certainly consider a career as an archivist. The profession has taken off
. Most often, people accidentally stumble into the job, but it is certainly a worthwhile option.
