Without the inspiration of travel, I’ve fallen into a bit of a hole this year with baby takes berlin. We came back to California so that my husband could finish his dissertation with university funding knowing that it would be another one-year-only spot. Now we’ve finished the diss – and yes, I do mean “we.” Anyone who has ever had a spouse or partner in grad school understands that this is a family affair. Academia isn’t just a job; it really is a lifestyle. Now comes the hunt for funding either in the form of a job or grants for more travel and research.
And so we’re moving. Again.
This time, for the first time in our adult lives, we’ll be living near family. Updates to come, as always.
