1. I have completed my first year of graduate school!!
2. There was some sort of bug with this blogs e-mail account, so I only just received a bunch of e-mails from people with time sensitive questions. I apologize that I was not able to get back to you!! Similarly, there are a lot of comments and questions on old posts from ages ago that I've only just seen now. So now I get e-mail alerts every time some one posts a comment. Hopefully this will allow me to get back to you all in a more timely manner!
3. I have fixed the links to previous parts of the Self Portrait with a Harp series, and will be adding my bibliography as requested.
4. Thank you all so so much on your kind feedback on all of my posts!!! It really does mean a whole lot to me to see that people like what I do. I've been off in the Black Hole of Academia for a while now and haven't had a chance to reply to everything, but I do want to say how much I appreciate you all!!!!
5. I've updated the layout. Let me know what you think!
