@timshel-thechoice said: WAIT MUSEUM STUDIES IS A THING? WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE GO FOR THAT

Museum Studies tends to be for people who want to learn the technical aspect of working in a museum, any museum, and has a smaller range of job opportunities (but still looks like a really cool program). Public history has a wide range of job opportunities, provides you with practical experience and history knowledge, and tends to be for people who know they want to be in the history field.

Anonymous Asked:
What are you going to grad school for?

Public history! Maybe Museum Studies, but I would prefer public history.

Off to visit grad school number two today! It isn’t my top choice but they are rolling out the red carpet for my visit AND they are known to provide full funding. Driving up and back with Patrick, who was kind enough to help me out since I have no clue where I am going. It wasn’t difficult to convince Deacon to give him the day off either!

"I have ZERO desire to veil, do not feel spiritually called to do so, and still treat the Mass with reverence." I agree with you 100%, but it is amazing the number of people who don't. - tommy

The people who don’t treat the Mass with reverence? Or the people who don’t understand that you can be a devout female Catholic without a veil?

Both of those are very sad.

Also, it was nice to meet you Tommy! One of my favorite people is named Tommy! God bless!

Who’s your patron saint and why?

Watching Scooby Doo to see myself on the big screen

"We need ‘lectio divina’ in the visual realm. It means that you get good books. That your coffee table books are rich sacred art. That you give yourself opportunities to wander in the woods, that you read the book of creation more deliberately and you spend time before the 2,000 years of history of sacred art. I think that our homes, our schools, our offices, should be places of beauty, too. There should be beautiful things all around us. Don’t try to bottle beauty. Don’t try to capture it. If you do, it stagnates… We listen, we’re attuned to the transcendent, to God, and beauty leads us to God. Keep your head and your heart open to God, and beauty will lead you to God."
