Apparently, I'm a canary...

Well, so the BBC says of my chosen (well, if one counts a degree as choosing) profession...

"Professor Mark Horton of Bristol University has predicted about a quarter (of archaeologists) will find themselves unemployed before the recession is over. It has been dubbed a "canary" trade, one which - like the canaries warning of dangerous gas in mining history - die at the first sign of trouble in the air.

"It's catastrophic," said the professor. "Most of those people will have to find jobs somewhere else. There will be a real skills shortage, and a real problem when excavations begin again."


Oh well. A job in Fashion is my only hope. 

Wait a second...


Although, all depression aside, I do actually rather like canaries and canary yellow... Hmmmmmmm.

I've been searching for the perfect yellow dress for a while now. I make it my mission to find one before summer. Thanks for the nice comments.
