The Truth About Tuesdays

(Sam Cameron) Permanent link

I have a confession to make: I seldom write my blogs on Tuesdays. I usually write them before, on Mondays or Sundays and then post them when I get up on Tuesday mornings at 5:30. Since I work at the Smithsonian on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I leave the house pretty early, and get home kind of late. So, if I did in fact write my blogs on Tuesdays, you, my dear readers, would have to wring your hands in anxiety waiting for my posts to finally appear at 8 pm. I hate to do that to you.

            Now, as I sit ergonomically correct at my computer, beside a ravaged carton of chocolate ice cream and the still smoking spoon, I have at last been able to take stock of the situation.

            I’M FREE!!

            As Sairam mentioned on Sunday (far more graciously than I just did) yesterday’s Capstone Colloquium marked the end of my Capstone project and the impending end of my experience as a Montgomery Scholar. I have loved my time as a Montgomery Scholar, and I am saddened that it will soon be over. I am consoling myself by convincing myself that it will never really be over because I will always be a Montgomery Scholar; the experiences I’ve had and the friends I’ve made will always be with me.

            My true depth of feeling aside, I am a college student, and I am therefore overjoyed that my major project of the year is over, and the rest of the semester will be smooth sailing…if sailing on a windy day can be called smooth, that is. (It’s comparatively smooth to what I was doing before, which was more like sailing between Scylla and Charybdis while learning to play the accordion with my feet.)

            For those of you who have been following the blog a while, you know that last night I gave a speech to a large crowd of people in the Theatre Arts Arena. I am proud to report that it went very well. After my butterflies subsided, I had a great time sharing my research with the audience.

            Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see Sairam’s speech, so on this particular occasion, I can’t brag about what a genius he is – although I concluded that his suit was quite smart.

            And so, there you have it: as much eloquence as I can muster after a long day of work. Aren’t you glad I usually don’t write my blogs on Tuesdays?
