I can’t believe it’s been a year since I last updated. Thank you, WordPress, for hanging onto the blog while it languished.
Vox Hortus has its own domain now, so you can find it at www.voxhortus.com or at the WordPress address.
So much has happened in a year. I’ve finished my third field season for my research project, I’m writing my thesis and looking for a job. I graduate this spring, into an economy that is, as we know, underwhelming. I remain optimistic.
In 2010, I stomped grapes for Chardonnay, drank a good amount of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, read a metric tonne of journal articles, wrote some papers, took a few classes, went to Idaho, went to Washington, went on one date, took up birding, dropped the ball on knitting, took up spinning, identified 4,150 insects, learned and forgot a bunch of statistical whatnot, sat through 5 successful graduate defenses in my cohort. I’ve made great strides in getting over my fear of arachnids. It’s been good. Strange, but good.
Vox Hortus is 5 years old! There are new features in the works and lots of ground to cover in gardening, insects, science, and the natural world. The blog has a new theme and it’s all new from here out. Welcome back!
