Today I have been investing my time in “professional activities.” Because I suspect there’s very little chance that I’ll get a job as a professional blogger, I’ve been trying my hand at a few projects that’ll look good on my CV (in other words, taking flower photos and writing sweater poetry does not equal career success).
So I’ve started a podcast about History. You can find my first episode here, and it will be listed on iTunes shortly (under the title of “Making History” podcast). You might also be interested in taking a look at the blog affiliated with my new podcast. It’s pretty dry and professional stuff. But that’s life, right? :)
That said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this:
1) Did you know that there’s an Italian proverb, quoted by Montaigne, that says, “He knowes not the perfect pleasure of Venus that hath not layne with a limping woman”? Essentially it’s saying that women who limp, they’re better in bed. Just thought you might want to know that.
2) Betcha’ didn’t know that I just spent about two hours sitting in my cozy purple chair recording my podcast and then editing out most of my ‘ummms’ and then uploading everything. When I stood up I realized that the whole time I’d been sitting on a very lovely bar of certified organic 73% Super Dark chocolate. Thanks to my butt, it is now a very lovely certified organic 73% Super Dark chocolate soup.
What, no mention of the with-an-h drop-by visit?
Your new blog is awesome! I know I haven’t commented much here but continue to read. It’s great to get a view into the life of a student that involves a family and, you know, real life. (Not that my life isn’t real – but I am in awe of your ability to balance your priorities. I spend too much time on work, letting it fill all the empty space.)
So anyhow, I just wanted to let you know that. And I’ll bookmark your new project.
Thank you so much for your kindness! I have worked so hard on this for the past few weeks and it’s a bit daunting to launch something and let it go out there into the ether…
Here, I have a community and dozens of faithful (and kind!) readers. Out in the History blogworld, I am nothing….YET….
