Thoughts for Thursdays

Okay, Thursdays are going to be something slightly more academic: an article that I found interesting, an essay, perhaps a book review. However, today, it's only a link to an article I found interesting. It's an article about the sordid history of the Times New Roman font. Who knew such a boring and common font had such a potentially controversial history? I initially had more to say, but it got preempted by more exciting news:

I have an actual interview, with an actual publisher to be an actual editor.

I know! Who'd have thunk that the English major might actually get a job in her chosen field of study!

People say that you shouldn't get your hopes up. I say tosh to that. All of my hopes are so far up that it will be nothing short of a spectacular let down if things don't work out, but I've survived spectacular let downs in the past, with the help of my friends Ben and Jerry. I'm just the type of girl who goes all in, no matter what. It's a better way to live, if you ask me. Try it some time.

Anyway, wish me luck, pray for me, whatever you feel comfortable doing. Thanks!

First of all, congratulations on the interview! I'll be praying for you!

Secondly, this post reminded me that we ought to seek out the Helvetica documentary and watch it.
