The Laeotropic Aspect

About These Pages

These pages were hand coded on various machines over the years (all three major OSes represented.) I haven't updated them from my phone yet, but I'm sure that day is just around the corner.

The Author

Image of the author. Background

I graduated in May 2003 from Bryn Mawr College, with a somewhat ill-timed degree in Near-Eastern Archaeology. Took a year off, went to Uconn for Historical Archaeology. Left with an MA, although I had originally planned to do a PhD. Spent a lot of time

As of 2004 I am now at a University getting my PhD in Anthropology (Historical Archaeology concentration.) I get to hanging out in cemetaries, libraries, the anthro student lounge, the copy room, and the occasional pub. Took a few more years off, tried to get my head together, and finally, in 2009, applied to and got into a special program to become an APRN. After working with Cystic Fibrosis patients - many of them the same age as me - I decided to formalize the medical information I've absorbed passively over the years.

Random Stuff

People think 'archaeology' means exotic locales. My first dig was in South Dakota, at a brick factory. It was made of, and made, bricks.
I worked on an organic farm for one summer, which was awesome. I cannot, for some reason, keep houseplants alive. I was always assigned to weeding, harvesting, and cleaning.
I'm into alchemy as an interesting set of metaphors for psychological growth and development, in a sort of Jungian way.
I share a birthday with Internet Celebrity Wil Wheaton.

...any wizard bright enough to survive for five minutes was also bright enough to realise that if there was any power in demonology, then it lay with the demons. Using it for your own purposes would be like trying to beat mice to death with a rattlesnake. - "Eric," Pratchett
