…So Now What?
Well, for starters, it’s actually been up for a little while now, but I wanted to finish the “Pyrrha” business first.
Ultimately, “business” on the blog will continue as usual, except that posts will no longer be on a daily basis. I’ll still be putting up the Missing Letter Monday Posts every week, most likely doing Words Crush Wednesday every week (may be dropping out of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, as I don’t think I’m being very useful to it), and hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with my Thursday myths, but with two Thursday classes this semester, that may fall into some down time and/or be re-scheduled to a different day of the week, so we’ll just have to see what happens with it. (On the other hand, I’ve got like 4 hours to kill on campus in between those classes, and it takes me 45 minutes to get from my house to campus, so I’m not going home between classes, so I might write the myths out between classes. One never knows how these things will turn out!)
As to the remaining four days of the week, whether or not there will be posts on them will depend if I have anything to say. No more pointless daily griping. (Or at least very little of it.) There will still be book reports (I still have to write ones for The Death and Afterlife of Achilles and Go Set a Watchman) and various posts on mythological topics, topics associated with my thesis (though that, too, is mythologically based) and any points of interest that come up in my classes this semester, which are on the fall of the Roman Republic and on political revolutions in the Spanish colonies in the Americas. Also anything interesting that happens at the museum; we’re building an expansion to the museum where I volunteer, and the construction workers have been setting aside interesting bits and bobs they come across in digging the foundation, so I spent this past weekend cleaning and accessioning glass bottles and metal basins and teakettles from the early 20th and late 19th century, and who knows what else interesting might happen during construction. (Though I doubt they’ll be digging much deeper for the foundation of the new wing, so probably nothing much older of archaeological note, but other stuff might happen. Plus I’m hopeful that there’ll be a job opening for me to make the transition from volunteer to paid staffer. That would be nice.) There will also be some off-topic posts. My thesis is tied to issues of gender and sexuality, so anything tied to those issues is technically only partially off topic even if it isn’t about ancient Greece, so there will be other posts on those issues. (I’ve been planning one for a while now on gender and sexuality in Devil Survivor 2, but I have to finish playing it before I can write the post. And by “finish playing it” I mean getting all five endings and finishing the sequel path included in the 3DS version. I still have the fifth ending and the sequel path to go.) Also the occasional random post; I’ve had one called “randomness” in the Drafts section here for a long time, accruing little bits of weirdness, and eventually I’ll feel it’s got enough bits of weirdness and actually hit the publish button on it.
Now that this is out of the way, I’m going to go write up a new “About” page that’s more accurate to the new “mission statement” of the blog, change up the title of the blog, and do some other minor “house-keeping” tasks about the place. Then I’m going to have to get ready to head off to the first day of class!
(Yes, I did plan this so that the change-over post would come on my first day of class.)
