Remembering things is hard…
During the middle of the day I’ll think “oh man, I should update my Newberry tumblr…”
So, I finally am!
I’ve been to the Art Institute Museum again since my last post. Saw more art. Highlights: sweet art deco chairs, paperweight exhibit, and the photography/visual arts room. They wouldn’t let me take any pictures in the photography/visual arts room, but there were two totally awesome installations. One was an entire wall of the backs of photographs. It was awesome to see all of the different little labels and stories people had written. The other was the projectors, each with a death row inmate’s final words written on the film. So what was projected on the wall just looked like a blur of type. It was a pretty neat idea.
I’ve also been to the museum of science and industry. That was also pretty cool. We got to see the U-boat exhibit, which was brilliantly done. Also, there was this totally awesome fairy dollhouse. You laugh, but that’s just because you haven’t seen it. It’s amazing.
I also finally started my job in Digital Initiatives. It’s pretty fantastic. I’m mostly working with different digitizing projects which involves organizing, cataloging, data entry, and research. It’s pretty interesting and my boss is super nice.
As far as my research goes, I’m doing ok. I have a topic, and it got approved, but the professors think I need to change my focus a bit… So I’m meeting with them this week and hopefully I can get it figured out.
Oh! And Luke came to visit last weekend and we went to Chinatown! Definitely fun… haha.
