-- Makeover Madness --

Since going AWOL a couple months ago on the blog front there have been a bunch of changes underway around here.

The first, most obvious change, being the blog makeover courtesy of Sweet Simplicity blog designs.  Lindsey started off with a quick questionnaire about my likes and dislikes, then drafted up an idea board that took all of those likes/dislikes into consideration.  I think gave her feedback about the design before she went ahead and installed the new look - and I love it!  The quirky florals, the colors and fonts - are in a word - perfect!  Thanks so much Lindsey!!!  While Lindsey isn't accepting new custom design work at this point, she does have some ready-to-wear templates that are gorgeous.

The other major change that I've been working on over the past couple months is a makeover for my CV/Resume!  In fact, on September 29 I successfully defended my dissertation - that's right - I'm technically Dr. Clark now.  The title sounds so incredibly strange to me though.  See I've spent 3 years teaching students who insist on calling me Professor or Dr. even though I tell them its not me, and now that it is, it feels like I'm wearing a costume or something.  I was telling my mom about the weirdness, and she didn't get it.  So I told her it is kind of like the feeling after you get married and change your last name.  It actually took me several years to think of myself as Amanda Clark inside my head...  Anyways, I'm sure that with time it will start to feel more natural with time.

So anyways, I'm back with a new blog design and a new degree - hopefully I'll be around more often :)
