Happy New Year!

Take a break, and read about some history!

      The Sassy Starfish is my return to the blogging world.  A world that I adore, but let fall to the wayside when I changed careers in 2011.  In my first my blog, I shared my thoughts on the world when I lived in Edinburgh, Scotland.  I also have the blog Baking Book Bunny and The Rugged Bunch.  The Rugged Bunch is my camping and travel blog to share my adventures with my husband.  On all these blogs, I have shared some of my favorite interests including travel, reading, baking, and wedding planning.  However, I have a few other skills up my sleeve and this is where The Sassy Starfish comes into play.  

    When I began college at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2003, I changed my major several times until I found the perfect ones for me history and English.  I let my love of history carry me all the way to the University of Edinburgh in 2007 then to a short job at a local history and genealogy library in my hometown.  Unfortunately, I had to let my love of history go to the back burner in order to find a career with better job prospects.  After several years away form my beloved historical research, today I am returning to it with this blog.  

       Please look forward to future posts about history, genealogy, vintage living, and antique books.  This blog is part of my 2013 New Year’s Resolutions, and I look forward to sharing my triumphant return to historical research with you!

    I'm excited.

    What was the history career alternative you had to pursue? I went the route of limited job prospects, because I've wanted to be a professor since undergrad. It would have been more economically sound to pursue an alternative, more lucrative career as you have, but oh well!

    I look forward to reading about your historical research. What will your areas of concentration be?

    I moved to education after leaving Local History because of the pay increase. My original goal was to be a history professor as well, but it is scary job prospects. I may pursue it again once I save some money and pay off my student loan.

    I hope to concentrate on topics related to social history of everyday things, local interests, genealogy, and whatever else may strike my fancy.
