Classes Soon, End of The Summer
The summer is coming to an end here and I confess I'm looking forward to classes starting again. I'm feeling good these days and thinking up ideas for presentations at conferences in 2009. At the same time, I'm a bit sad to see the end of my work term. It has been interesting learning about how the federal government works, but it hasn't been, ah, inspiring in every respect. It has been a good experience to work at a large institution though as it is such a contrast to the small places where I have worked. It is refreshing to see that people who specialize to a high degree (e.g. in film or military records) can actually dedicate themselves to that.
