Sorry for Disapearing

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Hey everyone!

I’ve been gone for a while. Life got crazy, but I have not given up. I’ve been a little down lately because I hit a plateau in April, thought I had overcome it with a 2 lb. weight loss, but now the scale isn’t budging again.

Fortunately, I am now done my job, so that’s a huge source of stress gone, also I now have the time to go to the gym and actually get some sleep. I appreciated the paycheck, but the job and the people where I worked just brought to a really negative place.

I recently received some good news; I found out that I will be getting the same scholarship I got last year, but they’ve increased how much they’re giving me, yay! Also, it looks like I will be teaching at least one course at the local university in the Fall. The course is Food and Disease Prevention, so if any of you have some resources that you think would be good for the class, please feel free to send them my way.

A few weeks ago I finally finished my last paper, so now I’m anxiously waiting for feedback from my committee and to find out when I’ll be doing my candidacy exam. Hopefully that’ll all be done and over with before August because I’m about 95% sure that I’ll be joining my friend to dig in Slovakia! She’s leading an 800 AD dig (with burials!!!) and told me that if I wanted to join all I’d have to pay is my flight over. I’m thinking I’ll meet her in Frankfurt where she lives a week before the dig starts so we can hang out and take the train together. I’ll be in Slovakia almost the entire month of August. Super exciting! I’ll finally be a real archaeologist and not just a lab geek.

Anyhow, I’ll do my best to stay on top of things and post more regularly.
