Normally I would have some kind of running summary and all kinds of things to blog about but… no such luck. This last week I was sick, and the week before it was bitterly cold, so I haven’t even worked out in two weeks. Oops. Other than that, my life has pretty much been exclusively school, school, school (and going through whole boxes of Kleenex because… sick).
Classes and thesis stuff are keeping me pretty busy. And I got a job working at the library archives this week (!!) and I’ve only worked one day, but I can tell I’ll like it. I’m just organizing and making finding aids for boxes of correspondence of William Shirer whose probably one of — if not THE — most notable Coe College alum. He wrote a lot about the rise and fall of the Nazis/Hitler, and is sort of a big deal in the history-writing world. So reading through his 1960 letters about publishing his huge Hitler book was a good time.
But in the meantime I’ve gotten rejected from both CLS and the Fulbright, so now I’m half-heartedly job searching. Blergh. I don’t wanna graduaaaaaate!
