Dr. P and Rogan Hash it Out

November 28, 2017

Love this discussion and I agree 100%. It’s between Joe Rogan dropping F bombz with tough love and Dr. Rhonda Patrick, who has a Ph.D. in biomedical science and a B.S. in biochemistry- chemistry. This lady has done extensive research on aging, cancer, and nutrition in addition to the importance of mindfulness, stress reduction, and sleep. The latter being critical to me right now. 

Dr. Patrick’s studies improved her personal battles and her findings have shown that vitamin D “is critical to serotonin production,” and serotonin makes you happy. Less than 30% of Americans get adequate levels of vitamin D.” She says that when people feel “negative or low-energy,” that “it could be as simple as vitamin D.” You can read about that in 5 Foods for a Better Brain.

I love that they are teaching my son to value culture and tradition. Here is the model pueblo he worked so hard on for his NM history class.

Neil Degrasse Tyson❤and the Science of Fitness with Terry Crews

I seriously loved this interiew by my favorite astrophysicist who has also trained alongside Terry Crews. I love Neil. Anyone who doesn’t think fitness is critical in improving both the personal and professional life should think again.

Intellectuals Love Pop Culture

February 14, 2016

I had a great learning experience at the 2016 Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (SWPACA) Conference thanks to scholarship funds. If I can’t find outside funds to attend this conference again next year, I would gladly pay my own way. I thought ARMA San Diego was the best conference I had been to until SWPACA. I love being around like minded intellectuals. There is really nothing like it. I do want a PhD someday.

I made it a point to keyword search the program (which was close to 150 pages) for the words archive(s), culture, history, and New Mexico. I focused my time at the conference on those sessions for the greater good. I love learning things to benefit both my knowledge and my agency. Everytime I could, I supported New Mexico professors and students by attending their presentations. There was so much great research presented during this conference. I also made a presentation there.

I did attend a small handful of sessions that were chosen because of personal interest. One was a session titled “Myth and Metaphor in the Works of J.R.R. Tolkien,” which happened to be delivered by a University of New Mexico (UNM) professor. Another awesome presentation gave an analysis of “Penny Dreadful,” which I love, by a teacher from Texas. That session featured another presentation on the research of a UNM professor and student on violent video games and children. There was one on how Batman’s suit employs STEM!! Then there was one on fetishism and the villainess. You know I went to that one!!

The mission of SWPACA is “to promote an innovative and nontraditional academic movement in Humanities and Social Sciences and to celebrate America’s cultural heritages. To provide an outlet for scholars, writers, and others interested in popular/American culture, to share ideas in a professional atmosphere, and to increase awareness and improve public perceptions of America’s cultural traditions and diverse populations.”



Dark Archivist Evolving

November 2, 2015

••• "Evolving" a papercut by Val Rangel of Ch'osh Lichii Designs for Felicia •••

I recently made a presentation for work during my friend Val’s history class. It was one night in October and was my Tales of a Dark Archivist presentation. This class of students from the Santa Fe University of Art and Design was large. I’ve presented to her students before, but these ones really listened and actually engaged, which is awesome! They asked so many questions and I knew that by the end of class I had really won them over.

It was also so sweet of Val to give me a unique “thank you” papercut. She is such an amazing artist and I loved the design!! The symbology in this piece was perfect, perfect, perfect for me… just perfect!! This email I received from Val was great as well. I hope I’m getting better with age baby! She recognizes that I am always busy, but I do like it that way. No matter how busy I am… I always make time for people that I love.


My Lil Hillerman Interview

September 19, 2015

This interview is from the 2014 conference. It just went up on the Wordharvest channel on YouTube this week, so I wanted to share it. I’m honored to have my interview footage alongside those of several famous and infamous authors. Unfortunately, the sun was in my eyes, so I’m squinting through the whole thing!

Coincidentally, the video footage was edited by a guy from my gym. He recognized me and told my boss he knew me. He knows me from a very different world LoL. He was proly like… “is this the same gal? Hummm?” I never knew he did stuff like this. I guess you never know what iron lovers do on their spare time eh?

I’m looking forward to the 2015 conference. The author of Longmire will be there to talk about the move to NetFlix, which is awesome!!! I loved meeting him even though I don’t love any cowboys. Maybe I’ll ask him if he killed off Chase since I’ve only watched the first episode. I thought it was kinda symbolic in my real world.
