i never meant to be a liar. unfortunately, grad school has turned me into one. i keep meaning to post more often, but days blur together and before i know it, a month goes by with nothing.
it’s very strange how close to the end of school it is, which of course, means how close to the end of grad-school it is. come may 12, when i submit my last final paper, all that stands between me and a M.A. degree in Museum Anthropology is my thesis. i’m talking to my advisor about that tomorrow, but she gave me the nod of approval to go ahead with it when i handed in my proposal a month ago. i just hope that the library in wrangell can handle my researching needs….i’m a researching machine.
speaking of alaska, i’m still waiting on confirmation from my potential co-pilot for traveling out there. he should let me know tomorrow. i hope it’s yes. fingers crossed.
i can’t wait until i have a job that i can work at during the day, but completely leave there when i go home for the night. it’s really difficult to find a way to balance school-work time with personal time, as i always feel stupid-guilty when i’m not reading an article or writing a paper, etc. i just want to be able to come home and draw or paint or something. anything.
hopefully soon. and hopefully more updates to my etsy soon. so frustrating…so many ideas, no time.
i leave you with my new favorite video….buffy sainte-marie singing with fred the horse (cripple creek).
oh my goodness. sorry for such a prolonged absence…since the end of last semester, i tended to not be at the computer AS much, therefore leading to a decrease in blogging. whoops.
i will do better.
second semster is starting. it’s strange to think that after this one, all i have left is a summer consisting of a second internship and thesis. and then, i’ll. be. done. M.A. by October. so so strange.
speaking of internships, i’ll be spending the next 3-4 months working an internship for collections management at The Museum of Sex. i’m super excited, and if nothing else, it should provide some entertaining stories and be a good conversation starter for my resume. be prepared for updates.
thankfully, i was also able to get myself to start running again. like the title says, better late than never…last week was a slow start, but hopefully by the end of next month, i’ll be back up to 30 or so miles a week, and enter a race. fingers crossed.
also, i’m hoping to get some new things up on my etsy site soon. keep an eye out…
on an unrelated note, I’m totally in love with Amanda Wachob‘s tattoo work. the abstract ones are lovely, as are the conceptual ones.
