About meSo my MPhil in Classics turned out to be useless (who knew? HAHAHA), so I said to myself, Self, you need a degree that will get you a job. Then maybe you can consider another useless degree, such as a PhD in Classics. So now this Classicist is studying to gain Archivist Power too. Then she can hide behind a mound of Old Stuff and sneak up on you with a double-whammy Classicist-Archivist combo.
About my libraryI have too many books. The likelihood of me ever putting all of them up is slim. I've finally updated a great number of my Classical studies books, though this is still far from complete. Most of my Shakespeare is missing (mostly because I'd have to go track them all down and figure out which editions I have!), as are many other "obvious" books (for the same reason). Slowly, slowly I shall add them . . .
