Nope, I’m not an archivist, either*. But what I really want to be when I grow up is a starchivist. I found this term one of my favorite new reads “Suggested Donation,” which is a mostly museum blog. Check it out, it’s fun and cheeky.
I trust that starchivists won’t get all bent out of shape when they are discovered by the New York Times (it’s the Style section!) or In Style magazine or what have you.
*Which may lead discerning readers to ask, “What do you do, then?” Well, I’m a Program Officer!
