glaukopis: Cat and Girl: graduate school (gradschool)
As I might have guessed, it turns out that grad school isn't particularly conducive to blogging. However, it can be conducive to learning things about yourself; for example, I've discovered that I'm seriously inclined to pessimism and that, when I don't have time to brush my teeth, I'll still put on lipstick.

Some of what I did this spring: gave a presentation on information behavior; tried to figure out different photographic processes; sniffed burning plastic, for science; wrote a paper about the Cairo Genizah; and helped to arrange and describe my first archival collection. I got a job in the digitization unit of the university libraries, and am now in interviews for other jobs. I also participated in the school's mentor program, through which I met S, who is the subject librarian for various areas including classics, and whom I like very much. I guess it's satisfying when pessimism turns out to be unwarranted.

I've turned 23. I kept forgetting that my birthday was coming--which must mean I'm getting old.

I can safely say that this item of clothing would be a great gift for the classicist ladies in your life. Or for you, because who doesn't want to put Minoans on her torso?

Getting coconut to stick to the sides of a layer cake isn't the easiest thing, but it's worth it.
