I spent most of my time putting off studying for finals by reading job postings for archaeology technicians. My two favorite websites are ShovelBums.org and ArchaeologicalFieldwork.com. There are so many cool jobs out there! I’ve even started compiling a list of companies to apply to once I graduate….in two years….
I’ve also started kicking around ideas about what I’m going to live in while I’m wandering around digging up old stuff, and discovered that homemade truck campers & trailers are actually a thing. I’ve added a section over on Pinterest to stick random ideas about how to design something like that, because it sounds awesome. People make so many great things.
