Back to Work

I’ve been off for two weeks (with the exception of that Saturday that I had to work). I’ve been packing, moving, and unpacking. I’m utterly exhausted. I don’t want to have to return to work, but I have things to do there too. I still have some more to do at the old place, so I’m planning to take another day and a half or two days off to finish up before my lease ends on Friday. I have another week’s worth of vacation time to take off before the end of May, I might as well take them when I need them most. Besides, until the end of May is going to be a busy time. On April 20, we are bringing in a speaker from out of state to give a lecture at the museum. I have my endoscopy April 29, and I’m going to see the comedian Matteo Lane on April 30. Winter Was a Drag Ball is May 14, and from May 19th-22nd, I will be in Boston for the Alliance of American Museum’s Conference. I have my annual physical May 4th and a dental cleaning on May 25th. And most exciting of all, Star Trek: Brave New Worlds premiers on May 5th. It’s a lot going on. Then summer will be here and things should begin to slow down a bit. With few students on campus, things should be a bit more leisurely. I hope.🤞

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
