Now seems like a good a time as any to write a review post of the past year. Things have been up and down for me professionally, but I think overall the year has been kind to me. Let’s talk about the conferences I attended. I started the year off working on a presentation for a graduate seminar… Continue reading 2010: Conferences in Review
Recently, a friend of mine reminded me that I’m a hoarder. Not of physical objects (despite what the look of my room might suggest), but of ideas. Despite my addiction to my iPhone, I still carry around a moleskine notebook and a pen – allowing me to write our ideas for new projects, sketch pages… Continue reading Resolved: Be more productive!
Okay this is making me panic a little bit. I love using Delicious. It’s such a great tool for bookmarking sites that I want to reference later on. What am I going to do when it gets shut down? I guess I could start using some other webapp out there…but it’s so integrated into my… Continue reading Is Delicious about to be shut down?
I’m currently listening to Robyns Body Talk. It’s such a great pop album. I want to dance to it all day and night, even when out and about in public (i.e I’m dancing to it right now at Starbucks….). Listening to this got me thinking about what some of my favorite albums of 2010 have… Continue reading Albums of 2010
One of the best classes I ever took at UCLA was a seminar lead by a German PhD student. I also happened to meet a pretty good friend in that class. The topic was fin de siecle Vienna – turn of the century Vienna. Given that I took it just after the turn of THIS… Continue reading Fin de Siecle Vienna
I don’t really have the correct words to talk about this post. I’ve been pondering it for weeks now and just haven’t come up with what I really want to say about it. I’ll just try to go all stream of consciousness and see whether or not I am able to produce a logical, intelligent… Continue reading Modern Masculinity
Somethings going on… Almost everywhere I turn to, I see some new post about masculinity and the changes that is transpiring regarding our perception of it. It’s all very exciting to think about. I’ve been working on this blog post about the new masculinity for weeks, and I just can’t get it written. Mainly because… Continue reading Announcement: New Series – Masculinity
A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook about what sounds like an amazing road trip: Infinite Wanderlust. I immediately got jealous and started thinking of ways that I can go on a road trip sometime. I’ve always wanted to go on a long road trip, across the country or across different states. The longest… Continue reading Romanticizing the Road
CLA was a blast! Especially for a student, it was such a great opportunity to network with professionals! My idea of networking is to act like a goofball so I’m memorable – I walked around Sunday afternoon with my QR code attached to my badge! I even told people to scan me. Here’s a rundown… Continue reading Rundown of CLA
It’s hard out there, being slightly famous and known by the Library world. I just have to keep myself grounded, before I let all this fame get to my head… Wait. What am I talking about? Oh. Right. I’m pseudo famous. Or as I liked saying all weekend at CLA “I’m big on the Internet”… Continue reading The Perils of Internet Celebrity
