I want to do a post on my own independence. This holiday has made me think about independence. However, as I am not patriotic at all (moreso now that I can agree with most of what’s going on in the national field, but still … I dislike blind allegiance to any country), I will not be posting it today.

Isn’t that really independence? Or is it just me being ironic?

Sometimes I worry that I’m a secret asshole.

Anyway, I want to write a blog post on independence, but I think that will have to wait until after the fourth, and therefore after I get back from South Dakota.

Other blog posts I want to write:

1. Grad school/fellowships/life in the Great Beyond.
2. Going abroad.
3. Literary woes.
4. Going “off the grid.”

But it seems they will all have to wait until I get back from South Dakota, unless I get motivated later today to write about them. The grad school post is particularly heavy on my mind, because I’ve been thinking about that more often these days.

Today it seems that I will be doing some research (when am I not?), bringing some ice cream to a good friend of mine who is sick, and … wandering down to my hometown’s “freedom fest.” This is never all that exciting, but if I feel like being sleezy, I can probably get cheese curds for a discount by wearing less clothing than I usually do.

Yes, I am a classy dame from Wisconsin. I promise.

Also slightly wicked.

That’s all for now, I should get back to the grind. Just a quick meta-blog to let you know what I’m thinking and what’s coming in the future.

Go forth with peace. Don’t get too drunk and stupid around fire. This can have a tendency to be painful.


Lack of Posts this Week is Fret-worthy

Hello my beautiful wonderful readers on this glorious Midsummer day!

I haven’t posted this week (other than the Cool Monday). It’s unfortunate, but it’s true. My non-internet life has just been booming with activity, and hence, I haven’t had time to post here.

BUT – this is a good sign, as my research, SoS, and personal life are all going swimmingly well! Still, I will post something cool sooner or later.

I may be putting together a Video-log (VLOG) post with the camera I’m to use for my research! Very exciting. I need to figure out how to get a film from the camera to my computer, and then how to store it and upload it. Long story short, I need to film something as a test-run before I go up to the Reervation.

And that thing I test may just be a Vlog post. It will be coming either today or tomorrow morning, depending on when I can get the post up on YouTube.

Other exciting thing: I have added a page to the blog of my reading list. It starts out with what people are most likely interested in, and then goes into my assignments for a class, and then into my research book list. Veeeeery exciting. Books are love.

Also, take a gander at this new layout. I like it a lot better, as it has my pages more prominently displayed at the top of the blog, rather than hidden on the side, and it has a nice calendar of posts. Unfortunately, there is no blog roll, so I’ll have to make one for my pages.

That is all for now. The plan for the day is to do some research, make me some bagels, have a textiles/craft meeting for SoS, and then go to a Midsummer celebration. Should be good times, good times.

Catch y’all with a post later!
