The Diary of an American in Russia – Week 1

So it has been 5 days since I first set foot on the grounds of Russia. To be honest this is all still so surreal. I have studied Russia for the last ten years of my life and never thought that I would actually make it here. But, here I am. So Day 1 –…

Week 12: The Final Countdown!

Look, though this is supposed to be my last time writing for class, I will be posting again when the exhibit gets published. Until then… I can tell you about making it. So the Exhibit is currently titled: Comics Fighting: The Underground War for LGBTQ+ Visibility (catchy isn’t it?!) The idea behind it is that…

Week 11: Metadata Completion and the Exhibit Drafting Begins!

HEY! Sorry about last week being a bust. I was a little preoccupied and out of town, however, I am back and going stronger than ever! And following up from 2 weeks ago I am steaming along on the metadata completion. So today I am going to go through the whole metadata process and show…

Week 10: A Little Busy… A Lotta Busy

Week 9: Running Out of Time

Week 7: Dealing with the World and Making Something Special

To start off with I want to apologize for the lack of photos, of me working. Now that I am really working on research and metadata there isn’t as much for me to take a picture with. I will be gathering some screen shots of what I am working on so that I have something…

Week 6: Moving On… As best we can!

Following a week like the one we were all subjected to last week, we are forced to come up with a way to move on. Never forget. But move on with our lives. That was my goal to accomplish this week. I am writing this right after my work week so that I will be…

Week 5: A Week That We All Have to Remember!

I cannot begin to describe how difficult this has been to write. Not just from the standpoint of knowing what to say, but from the standpoint of being able to sit down and be alone with my thoughts long enough to accomplish this. I just need to be able to say what it is I…

Week 4: Back to Work, Finding Aids, and TS Collin!

Well, I know last week was a little boring to read about. I would recommend you all be happy that I wasn’t overly graphic about my illness, I wanted to spare the details. But, now we are into week four of the internship and I am chugging right along! This week on Monday I was…

Week 3: Memorial Day Meets Sick Day

So I was very excited about going into the third week of my internship… However, a national holiday and me feeling a little under the weather ended up with me being unable to go and do what needed to be done. Putting me a week behind my self-made schedule has put a big delay on…

So week two has come and gone, and I am chugging right along in my attempt to digitize a growing amount of The Watermark issues. So, as I am moving along with this I want to go ahead and begin working on structuring how this blog will look from here on out. So starting today…
