I've not written one of these in a while, and so I thought today I would give a general update on what is happening in Sally's World.
First of all, I think I'm mostly done with my MA. I've now handed in my thesis, the external examiner has been and gone, and I've finished the conservation of my object which is now on display at Camberwell College of Art. I spent most of yesterday putting together my display tiles, and trying to arrange it just right in the case.
If anyone is interested, the exhibition runs from today until Sunday and I am very happy to show anyone around on any day except Sunday. It is open between 10 am and 8 pm, and there are some wonderful objects on display.
It's an odd feeling to have my time at Camberwell coming to an end. I've been really happy there. It's this lovely, creative, warm, nice
environment and it's quite strange to think that I won't be back there, in my place in G14, working on something new after this.
I have, however, had my new job confirmed as starting on July 16th at the Greenwich Fan Museum. I'm doing three days per week, at £10 per hour, for July. After that, Mrs Alexander and I will work something out for August, and I should hopefully start as a four day per week Curatorial Assistant in September. I went in to see Mrs Alexander yesterday and she was on good form, and being lovely. I think I'm looking forward to actually earning some money.
In other news, I have builders in my house today tearing out my old bathroom which they intend to replace with something new. Apparently the work will be ongoing for about a week, but we should have a functioning bathroom for all of that, one way or another. This may drive Jeremiah insane, and I'm rather expecting him to flee to Feltham at some point, if molez
will have him.
I also have three potential holidays coming up, which is very exciting. Two are definitely planned (I'm going to the Pacific North West to go adventuring alone, which is very exciting) and I'm going to Cornwall in December with my usual winter holiday posse, plus astro_dust
which means I'll need a new cat sitter for the period! There is also family talk of both a villa in Sardinia in September (which may be a bit close to my Seattle trip for the museum to be that happy with that) and a trip to Istanbul between Christmas and New Year.
The world is changing. I think it's changing for the better, but it's definitely changing. I just need to hold off on having any mid life crises in the interim. It's a good thing that I'm not a (full time) student anymore. It's a good thing that I've got a job. And the future will be shiny...
