Well, this year has been a busy year! I completed my qualification exams (you can read all about that here) in April after preparing for them all semester and since then I have been preparing to move to Hawaii!
I officially cleared out of El Paso Friday and will be hanging out in Dallas for a couple of weeks before I head off to Oahu. I am looking forward to going from the desert to a tropical island. It should be quite a culture shock, one of the things I love as an anthropologist.
All of this is going on as I start work on my dissertation research, which I will talk more about in a future post (let’s just say it has to do with gaming). On that note, my hope is to be able to keep this blog a bit more current once I get settled on the island. I’ll probably post a bit about that process over on Tumblr if you’re interested.
On top of quals and moving, I’m also finally taking the time to work on my web portfolio. I’ll post about that as soon as there is something worth showing there. I’m hoping to pick up some UX/IXD/IA side work as a result. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send you a private preview.
So yeah, it’s been a busy year and now you know why this blog has been neglected!
