Writer's Block: School Ties

What is (or was) your college major? Do you use it for your career?

After years of pathetic flailing and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I've come to the conclusion that I want to work in a museum, either as a curator or as a restoration specialist. It all boils down to the fact that I want an excuse to handle artifacts and touch paintings and do all the things you can't do as a mere museum visitor.

So I'm majoring in art history, with a minor in anthropology (archaeology-focused). Will it help me get into the museum world? Goodness, I hope so! I'm spending an awful lot of money for it to do nothing towards my future. But we'll see. It's a very competitive field and I won't be able to do anything without at least a masters degree, and probably not without a doctorate. So for the foreseeable future, it's academics for me.
