With that last post, I’m closing shop here on Ricochet Biscuit. And it has been a blast.
I’ve managed to go from completely lost food photographer pondering thesis #1 to completely lost grad student finishing thesis #2. I’ve traveled, eaten so many neat things, and talked about subjects silly to serious. All from my wanting to have a camera and geeking out over food.
This isn’t the end of my work in food, it’s that I’ve outgrown this space. As I write this, I’m in the process of shutting down my data collection phase, and will be hunkering down for writing the analysis. I can’t exactly avoid my thesis and graduation for much longer. (Well, I could, but that would mean either quitting school or going for a PhD. At this point I just want to be done, even if I know I’m going to pout for weeks over losing library privileges.) Also I want to change direction in my writing work, and the new plans won’t suit the Biscuit. Which is fine. I’m ending four years of a project, and it’s time for something different.
So yes, that’s it. Thank you. I’m so glad to have had this space, and my currently neglected twitter account, to meet so many of you wonderful people. It has been a joy to learn from everyone, even if my health doesn’t like to stick around. I’m getting better, and there are so many amazing things in store. It may be hokey to say that, but I don’t care. I can’t wait to get started.
In the wise words of Granny Weatherwax: I aten’t dead. For now, I’ve just returned to my thesis.
