One of the things I’ve cherished most in the last year has been becoming close to my department here- our Art History society is small, but wonderful.
Here, I think is one of my favourite photographs of all of us after John Walsh spoke last Thursday night.
No matter what level of education you are currently at, I think that the friends you make in your field are and will be some of the most important.
I look at these people and I’m grateful that I’m going to know the woman who forever changes the face of Museum Education, the man who’s going to make everybody see why Classical Antiquity is still cool and the woman whose office will be filled with Durer and Ghisi, with students patiently waiting outside of her door as she and I waited to spend time with our advisors here.
I love these people, they will always be my colleagues, but I am so much happier that they will also always be my friends.
