I know my posting is erratic. Blogging mood swings, who would have thought?

I was just surfing today, checking out careers and universities and basically stressing myself out by avoiding homework and realizing I have no plan or goal in life. Then I stumbled across the idea of Museology/being a Museum Curator... then I looked into requirements. Anthropology.

I have been looking very basically at Sociology and Humanities... English, Art history, and culture, because that's what my previous links have led to. I've never clicked on the scary word at the top of the alphabetized list. I'm glad I did.
  • Development and the environment,
  • Media and popular culture,
  • Health,
  • Illness and disability,
  • Gender and sexualities,
  • Tourism,
  • Religion and science,
  • Diasporic communities and displaced peoples,
  • Violence and conflict, and the colonial process.
That is me... and with my theatre experience, museum technical creation would be down my alley too. My multimedia experience would help with exhibit design. Then, I love research, people, and...As I was reading, I got butterflies. This is serious. I'm actually seriously considering this. I've never known what I wanted to be when I grow up. Now, I might. It's so relieving.

Can anyone say information interview? OH - and I found the most amazing program - the International Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology at York (too bad I don't want to go to Toronto... but it's certainly worth a look). My Nova Scotia loves are pretty decent... St. Francis Xavier seems to have a good one - and they have a Pre-Proffessional portion to the course as well. Dalhousie combines Sociology and Social Anthropology, so I'm not sure what that looks like or how it looks on a resume - but they're a central research school so...

I have homework to do, if i want to get into any of these!!! Fasting is really hard for some reason, it's never physically pained before to not eat - have I regained my hunger mechanism?! Shiiit. I want this stupid weight gone!!! Grad shopping is starting soon, what happens if I buy my dress 15ilbs heavier then I am at Grad (we all know that will provoke fasting D=)?!

Now I have to focus. I committed to doing one project before going to the library/gym so that should force me to focus... It's only 9am. I have 7hrs. Ok. I can do this...

It's always such a relief to finally have a plan for what you want to do with your life (other than just "i wanna be the skinniest girl in the room"). I'm glad you found something that will work for you :)
