ljfrostfire: (you may speak)
I've been working on details for upcoming phd applications, as you've no doubt noticed. I've posted the current draft of my statement of purpose in my academic blog for review and comment by, well, pretty much anybody who's interested. I'd really appreciate the feedback. Because the last thing I want is to look like a complete brain case during the application process. Anywho, go take a look?

In other news, I've decided to go for a vaguely steampunk look for the days when I'm teaching the latin class. This basically means nice pants, a button up shirt, and a proper vest. Plus I'm hoping to either score a pocket watch or fix up one of my pre-existing pendant watches as a girl version pocket watch. I'm also adopting an up-do as my default hairstyle. Which just makes me question why I ever cut my hair in the first place. Ah, the joys of hair frustration. I've clearly spent too much of my life trying to emulate hairstyles of the "straight and silky" which just ... never manage to translate on my hair. Not with my level of hair fail, anyway. Now, I just need to find some vaguely steampunk style boots to finish it off, and I'd be a happy girl. For a little while anyway.

Until I have to start paying for transcripts and applications and trips to the AIA conference in Philadelphia and computers and ... *sigh*
