Also, there was this time where in a private conservation about something totally off topic, I mentioned to a school cohort that I was a blogger. This conservation naturally progressed into what kind of blogger and now, I am forever known in my department as the "mommy blogger". I guess there are worse things to be known as, but instead of introducing me to groups of people as a PhD student in political science, studying American Politics, in particular Western and rural U.S. politics, I was now dubbed as "mommy blogger." So much for separating personal life from academia, but that's what blogging gets ya!
That's all. It felt good to get that off my chest.
