Weekly Wrap-up

Let's play catch-up...

Welcome to Friday, readers! Hope everyone had a great week of drinking green beer or avoiding the reinforcement of racial stereotypes. As I mysteriously alluded to in the project post on Tuesday, lots of things have been going on at Betty HQ the last few months.

Winter quarter is over! Woot! This was a hard quarter for me between full-time work that was INSANE (and frankly a little bad for my health in the end), school on the weekends (and two internships), my folks moving (more on that in a sec), and trying to have a life or clean socks-- it's been a bit rough. Needless to say I'm glad to put it behind me, but very glad for the experiences. Just a wee reminder that having an awesome support network is key to not falling on your face completely when you're trying something new, ya know?

Which brings me to my parents' move. Last week, my folks moved out of my childhood home and hauled their cookies all the way to the land of sunshine, large bugs and cacti-- Arizona. While this has been the plan for some time, it didn't make it any less fraught with emotion, particularly since we has to put our sweet old dog Hunter down the week before. It's a big, new adventure for them and while it was hard to let go of the place, I'm excited to see what their new life brings.

If that wasn't enough, I got into Graduate School! What?! Yes indeed, come September I will officially be a Master's student at the University of Washington in Museology. I am super excited and can't wait to get started on my new career path. My hope is that very little will be different for the blog, and that I may even have more time to post since I will not be working full time. You'll also probably get a ton of museum-related links to which I say sorryboutit and you'rewelcome. My last day working full-time in the theatre will be in July so you can expect some fanfare around that time.

This week's Gems Of The Internet:

  • Scholar claims Vincent Van Gogh may have hid a secret homage in his Cafe at Night

  • The most amazing thing I've ever seen (via This is Colossal)
  • This tumblr wins the internet this week
