It's been a while since my last news post because I've been busy this semester doing research on my dissertation topic. I'm planning on going over my ideas with my adviser next week. Hopefully it will go well- next semester I'll be writing my proposal.

It's really hard to come up with a dissertation topic- not only is it hard to come up with an idea that hasn't really been talked about it, it's hard to come up with an idea that's going to be specific enough to fit into 250 pages.

Anyway, the main purpose for writing today's post is to thank whomever sent me The Egyptologist, a novel that was put on my Amazon wish list. Normally my wish list is empty and I didn't bother advertising that I had put the book up there because it's not related to my comic/comic production but someone took the time to check anyway.

I went to check my mail box at school today and found a package in the "B" box, which made me excited since I hardly ever get mail! Maybe this says I'm easy to please, but finding the book really made my day. Not only do I have something to read on the train but I can walk around knowing that people are appreciating the comic enough to send me nice gifts from my wish list.

Today I've been walking around to all of the Egyptologists being like "Look what I got in the mail today! (Aren't you soooo jealous??)"

So, thank you!
