Sorry about the absence, all ~nobody who reads this thing.  I got a job back in January, which is great.  Along with the job I got 3 hours a day on public transportation, which is not so great.  So I've been a little distracted.  I've landed in science publishing.  I'm not really sure how, but it happened, and I'm not going to complain.  It's pretty sweet.  I get to read science all day.  :)

But that's why I've been gone.  Looking for work in all the wrong places.  Then living on the train.

So, uh, I graduated.  Magna cum laude, 3.9 gpa.

Now just to find a job.

I've submitted my final projects for most of my classes.  Now I have two finals left on Monday, and after that my first year back at College is over.  Then I'll be back to my husband, cat, and REALLY AWESOME (apartment in a historically-listed mid-19th century manor home made in the style and with the techniques of Tudor England) new home back in the UK.

And after that, one more year...
  • Listening to: The local rock station
  • Reading: Text books
  • Watching: NCIS
  • Playing: Ogre Battle 64

  • Drinking: Flavored seltzer, soda
after five years.  And it's weird.

My first undergraduate degree is in Fine Art, and I'm currently working on a second BA in Art Conservation.  :)

Bad thing is, my college is in Delaware... and my husband and cat are still in England.

So, after receiving an easel as a birthday present, I've started painting again.  It'd been years, no lie.  It's not that I haven't been making art, just that pretty much everything I've done since moving to the UK has been digital.

I'm still a little rusty, but getting back into the swing of things pretty quickly.  The upside to all this is that I am again using the skills I used as an art student.  The downside?  Paint in my hair.
