Long time, no write.

Okay.

I know…as far as blog authors go…I am the absolute worst. I get completely distracted and wander off towards shiny things at the drop of a hat.

But good news: I’m back…ish.

I just wanted to write a quick post for now to let you all know I’ve enrolled at NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study to design a masters degree in Public Health/Anthropology leading towards Round 2 of Thesis-ville in Infectious Disease in Film and Lit.

I am hoping that this blog will be an integral part of my journey through graduate school in trying to arrange new and exciting thoughts that I can add to my pre-existing thesis. I am hoping that by the completion of the program and Thesis Parte Dos I will have doubled the length of my thesis and polished it into something that is publish-worthy. I haven’t the slightest clue what my ultimate goal with this degree is…so don’t ask.

But for now I am content to know I am studying what I love and am passionate about.

I am part-time for now…but stay tuned for interesting thoughts on my two classes:

Art and Catastrophe

and

Violence and Metaphor

Psst–It’s like NYU knew I was coming and designed the most amazing, perfect courses for me ever. What luck!

I am going to have to send out my feelers and wrangle back all of my readers so that this blog keeps its interesting dialogue. Let’s chat things up and get back to the important stuff here….or any stuff at all!!

So once again…sorry I was away for so long. I am glad to be back in the blogosphere and back to academia.

  1. I was wondering why you were being replaced on Reed’s webcast/blog/inner circle.

    “Art and Catastrophe”? “Violence and Metaphor”? Really?! I’m lost trying to wrap my melon around what that actually means…

  2. Yes, well, unfortunately my move to NYC had nothing to do with my replacement on the show. Reed and I had a pretty serious falling out shortly after I left Roanoke. It’s sad, as I will miss working on the podcast. It was something I truly enjoyed. But life goes on.

    Glad you are still around to read even thought I wasn’t around to write!

  3. Alright, let’s see some blogging…
