I am a chronic doubter. This post won’t fix everything, but it does calm me to know that especially the weight of the 2nd-year doubting exists for others. Life as someone with a MLIS is so close, and I have no idea how much it will change. I just hope I don’t still end up stuck in 483948320 jobs and commitments while barely making enough to live on. My mind is going to snap if I keep doing this.
