As may have been obvious if one compares the dates of this post and the last, there has been a bit of an unintended hiatus on Semper Eadem. A bit of personal history and explanation, if you’ll indulge me – I just moved from Marquette, Michigan, which is located in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. My current location is Milwaukee, where I am working full-time and preparing applications for graduate schools. In the course of moving, I found a fabulous little apartment close to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where my partner is pursuing his PhD and where I work, but there was one small snag… no Internet access. We tried, for a month, to get the local Internet oligarchy to bestow us with the world outside of our own… but it took my partner’s and my own combined efforts to get any traction. Finally, after hours of phone calls, unfulfilled promises, and angry tweeting to get Internet into our small studio.
So now, with some fantastic speedy interwebs access, I am returned to life online!
