Congratulations on your MA!  I'm always glad to hear about people getting graduate degrees several years after college.  My mother returned to graduate school for an MS and PhD when I was 12, and ever since then I've been upset that more people don't go for degrees even if they haven't been in school for a while.  She got a lot of support but also a lot of criticism for "abandoning" her family in order to focus on graduate school.

I've been reading this list and commenting sporadically for about a year, but I'm not sure if I ever introduced myself.  I'm an undergraduate student in the USA, working on a degree comprising history, political studies, French, and anything else that sounds interesting.  I like DWJ.  That's about all there is to me.
