Exam

This what I recently wore to proctor the final exam for the class I was TAing for (Ancient Greece) – the room the exam was in is actually an auditorium and there were no chairs on the stage so I sat on the floor for 3.5 hours watching the students. My butt was sore afterwards. And I had a lot of exams to grade … I’m still working through those.

In other news, in just a few days I leave for Chicago for the big annual conference of historians in America, where I’ll also be interviewing for academic job positions. A good friend and I are sharing a room and I’m excited to see a ton of historian friends from all across the US (also, I love Chicago and am looking forward to exploring the city a bit) but also very anxious about the interviews…

I'll be updating the old Facebook page over the New Years weekend so check that out here and I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe New Years celebration!

I cannot get enough of that Yale cardi - I feel like I need to drive down there just to get kitted out in some New England gear.
