since I've posted to this Blog. But work, school, and life have interferred (not necessarily in that order). Since the last time I've posted, I've completed my M.A. in Mythological Studies and have advanced to Ph.D candidacy. This means that I'm writing my dissertation. But at the moment I'm actually working towards that, writing my dissertation concept paper. This must be approved before I can form a committee. Once the committee is happy, THEN I can start the dissertation clock (which at Pacifica is 24 months).
