2012: Time to change the space.

Your humble correspondant is a cranky young feminist from Ireland. The way to her heart (apart from between the ribs) involves books. And history. History books, too.

Most of my time is taken up with research for a postgraduate degree in Classics, concerning embodied experience of health and sickness in the cult of Asklepios in Greek antiquity. If you need to know Mediterranean history things, I know where to start looking. (The problem with history is that one never stops looking.) In what remains of my time, I climb walls, attempt martial arts, and review books for places which have included Ideomancer.com, Strange Horizons, and Tor.com.

This journal is for the most part dedicated to whining, bad translations of Greek, and medium-brief writeups of books. (The house takes requests, especially if accompanied by biscuits.)

And lusting after things I can never afford.
