Current Status

You know, as I think about it, I’ve not really posted anything about my current status.

I don’t even know if I have mentioned that I have chosen to go to the University of Missouri for my PhD. The choice was made because Dr. Huneycutt really chased after me (it’s nice to be wanted) and because I can do Anglo-Saxon military culture with her and Dr. Richard Abels, who is from the US Naval Academy.

So right now I am sitting in a brewpub in Columbia, MO, one that has a very nice brown ale and wireless internet. This is the way life oughta be :).

I’ve decided to try and find a house here and the process is going though it’s so complicated.

Speaking of complicated, I wish I understood what I really want personally. Things are just odd with me right now, a fact pointed out forcefully by Maerwynn this morning.

I did have a good chat with my Dr. Huneycutt today, I’ll be taking four classes next fall, Intensive Latin, Roman Empire, Medieval Lit, and a Seminar from Huneycutt. Combined with teaching probably 2 classes, I’m going to be very busy come fall. I’m excited, it will be nice to be fully occupied again.

  1. Kudos – on getting somewhere where you are wanted, if not where you want to be right now. Your tone is a bit vauge, wandering even, but it sounds like you will have a fantastic term come September. In a way I am jealous because I would like to work on my MA, but I know I don’t want to do it now. So, many congrats. Will it be closer to Eoforwic or further? My US geography is a bit scatty.

    1. My life right now is a bit vague, wandering even :), at least until I buy a house. As to closer to Eoforwic, it’s about the same, about 12 hours of drive time. It’s basically right between Kansas City and St. Louis.
