Which is to say, I'm getting all up in this student librarian thing.
(That last one especially makes me feel like a bit of a doofus; seriously, who's not interested in the use of technology in librarianship? But what I really mean is, for example: QR codes are annoying, but the idea that you can embed links in the real world is pretty cool. The situation surrounding copyright and piracy and open access is a giant clusterfuck, but a world in which all information is free makes librarianship and its ethics potentially hugely relevant. That sort of thing. Not that that makes me any less of a doofus.)
Anyway, when pressed to pick a field I say "special collections," because seriously, that could mean anything. But I do struggle a bit with the idea that all of the things I'm interested in are very interconnected, but don't have an easy label associated with them. (If you know of one, please tell me.) I'll also admit to a certain amount of academic impatience. I understand very well the need to get the theoretical foundations in place, but I've already got a long list of concepts that I'm eager to chew on, and I can get a little frustrated with the elementary nature of my assignments. And then I start worrying because my classmates all seem very tense about them, and I'm not sure whether that means I'm really that on top of my work, or just that far behind.
