I am currently writing the conclusion to my dissertation (in fact, I took the day off from blogging yesterday to write all day)!!!! I still have editing to do but it’s relatively minor…after five years I am drawing to the end of the tunnel – take that world! Yeah, I don’t even know what that means but I am a bit on the giddy side ride now.

jeans: thrifted, Charlotte Russe / shoes: Target / top: Gap / necklaces: Claire’s and F21

And ch-ch-check this out, it’s a few samples of documents that I worked with for my dissertation! This are from a book but last year when I was traveling in DC and California and the UK, I was visiting about 15 archives and sitting in them from 9 am to 5 pm and making transcriptions of thousands of letters just like these that related to my project. That’s why I need that magnifier necklace!

Congratulations, you are almost there!! its interesting to see the letters, I am impressed by the ....'clean look' if we had to hand write letters today I am sure it wouldn't look 1/2 as 'aesthetically pleasant' to the eye as these do .... we have lost that skill with typewriters and computers, but on the other hand yes, I see the need of magnifying glass now, well you also make them into great necklaces :)
your shirt is beautiful, love the color and the little mesh on the shoulders, nice detail!



Those letters are absolutely amazing & so beautiful. AND my goodness I love your amazing necklaces, love the layered look & mixed metals. Have a great day hun. xx veronika

Those wedge heels are so cute. I love your bookshelves. xo

laura said...

Wooooohooo! Congratulations, lady!

I love these documents you've posted. I consider myself a translator more than a "scholar" so I really appreciate looking at the real documents first-hand instead of a transcribed copy.
