Roll On, Round Two!

Here I am, back in the land of the maple leaf. I couldn't be more thrilled, all sarcasm aside. I missed Western and my friends and learning and even working - working toward something and feeling a sense of accomplishment. So I'm getting back on the horse here. It should be a productive and exciting semester!

All of my public history projects are rolling along quite nicely and I'm looking forward to seeing the end results. I'm venturing out into the world of academic history, for real this time, not just auditing - so that's a bit scary. It's not difficult to see that last semester has turned me into a completely different historian, so it should be interesting to see how I tackle that course.

Finally, I've got my interactive exhibit design course! I still can't picture myself actually creating something technological with my own two hands. I have a hard time believing that my brain can work that way - but maybe it can! I'm feeling a bit of encouragement after hearing that I actually did really well in the first half of digital history. I never thought I'd see the day...but turns out "the day" was last Wednesday! Hmm...

So... I've started by updating my website. I'm toying around with a few ideas for my IED project, but I could really use some help with getting a more concrete vision. Feedback is much appreciated as always!
