It has been three weeks of quarantine... and counting. Overall, I am doing fine. I know that is the introvert in me speaking. Not having to interact with people in person is amazing! And all my personal projects I have don't involve others. They are solo things like reading, blogging, etc. I have been keeping... Continue Reading →
The world is in some crazy and uncertain times! With COVID-19 spreading around the world, many areas are in “lock down”/quarantine. This is what Silicon Valley is experiencing. They are encouraging everyone to stay at home and practice social distancing. I am following the request to quarantine and so are many others. Many restaurants, bars,... Continue Reading →

Growing up, May Day for me always had a kind of negative connotation since it was associated with communism. Though my political, social etc views are all over the place, there should be nothing wrong with celebrating the working people!... Continue Reading →

One of the many reasons I love museums, and working in museums, is the power of inspiration museums have.
Work friends are crucial! I’m so thankful for mine and that we were able to get lunch together today. We both have been through a very tough year professionally. Apparently people don’t like strong women. Who knew 😜
I have no idea what my dream job looks like let alone what I want to be doing in 6 months. I’m just going to keep working on growing as a person and learning new things for my career. Eventually all things will fall into place.
An exhibit begins to be taken down so a new one can take its place.

I would also love... Continue Reading →
