Salutations lovely blog followers! This is just a quick note to explain my absence over the last couple of months, and invite you to see what it’s all been for.
For whatever reason (ambition, insanity, desire to please, capability, or the combinations therein) I took on a little more than I could chew this quarter. Teaching, taking courses, taking my qualifying exams, submitting a paper and, as a cherry on top, taking my general exam (i.e the dissertation proposal). I love my blog, and you folks and the aspects of crows that I can share with you are constantly on my mind. At the end of the day though, my priority is my graduate work and sometimes the blog needs to take a backseat.
I do not tell you this in the hopes you’ll understand, I tell you this because I already know you understand. But I also know you follow the blog because you are passionate about crows and to that end, I want to invite you to see the presentation of my dissertation proposal this Monday, Dec 5th.
While this talk is intended to impress my faculty committee enough that they approve me as a PhD candidate, it is given to a room of largely first year students, and is therefore designed to be inclusive of all backgrounds and knowledge levels. Crucially, this seminar is also open to the entire community, so you won’t find any awkwardness strolling in as a member of the public and not as a UW student. I hope to see you there!
