Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Hi!

9.20.2012

Hi!



So I've been thinking about starting up a blog for a while now.  I did a little guest spot on my good friend Stephanie's blog a couple weeks ago (
www.bourbonandglitter.com) and got a lot of people saying I should start up my own.  Deciding that giving into this kind of peer pressure is always a good thing here I am!

I guess with my first post I should explain my whole museum thing : )  I LOVE MUSEUMS!  I've always enjoyed going to museums and learning about history.  Have been saying this for years and am still convinced I'm probably born in the wrong time period.  History is so awesome that I majored in it at Valparaiso University, along with too many minors to count.  Actually only three French, Classical Civilization and Modern European Studies.  See a theme right?

Even though I've always loved museums and history it didn't really occur to me that I could actually make a career out of that until just before I graduated.  Who knew there were actually people who make things run and take care of things at museums!?  Craziness.  So since then I've been working my butt off (unfortunately not literally though) trying to make it in the museum world.  One goal that I have for myself is to try and visit all the museums, historical societies and anything remotely like that in the Chicagoland area, naturally taking photos along the way!  Between my contract positions and internships I have a good number already conquered.  

This weekend a friend from my masters program (info to come on that later but needless to say I'm sure you can guess what it is!) is coming in to visit myself and the other ladies from the program who live in the area.  There is definitely museum visiting going down this weekend.  I'll be sure to update you on those.  I do have a life outside of 100 year old walls so don't worry!
