I've got a long involved game plan that involves making my money first. If everything goes well I'll be able to be more involved than waiting for a job to open. I'd like to create some of those jobs. I'm sure it will take a couple of decades but its something to dream about. Time is the only thing for sure, though. :wink:

If everything goes absolutely perfect, I will attend BSU for four years, leaving at the age of twenty-two. I'll then move to Rhode Island, and attend Brown University for six years to gain my Masters. Then, after finding a job in a museum (the Smithsonian would be my first choice merely for the name), and working there for two to three years, I could return to Brown University and start working on my Doctorette. Keep in mind, this is in an absolute perfect world. It's just a dream, but it's what's keeping me going!
My teacher, Bonnie Olchowski, worked in the Egyptology department @ Brown University!. Now, she's an 8th grade Language Arts teacher, but its such a coincidence that she used to be on their egypt department!
idn if i want to be one though, i mean, i love egypt history, it's soo interesting, but i'm just not sure what my future plans are or anything, i'm only in 9th grade right now, i have a ways to go. lol

My new dream is becoming a guide in Egypt. I should go down the Nile every day and teach people a lot about Egyptian history. One of my guides, Gyuri inspired me to do this... (Gyuri, you're a wonderful guide!) It would be wonderful... becoming an egyptologist is harder than I thought, so I prefer be a guide. Anyway, are here any real egyptologist or people who study egyptology?

I'm afraid no one qualifies as 'real Egyptologist', unfortunately. ...Unless someone's being bashful! :wink:

My uncle went to school in Chicago for some years, and was telling me about it. He never actually told the truth, but just said, "yeah, they were a smelly bunch..."

The Egyptologists! He said he was studying at the local library one day when he caught the stench of something horrible. It was either the janitor walking by with a load of rotting garbage, or the Egyptologists (probably just students studying archaeology..) at the next table. To this day, he swears that Egyptologists smell..

But, like I said.. he likes to make things up for the sake of humor. Sometimes it doesn't deliver as well as he would like, but he never stops, lol!

Just a word of caution to Lostris - the Egyptians are very defensive about guide employment. Although I've not been to Egypt, the vast majority of staff who work on sites are native Arabians, and most learn to speak several different langauges.

At the moment, I'm planning on getting my undergrad in "History and Archaeology of Greece, Rome and the Near East". After that I'll either: a) change my interests and get a real job
or
b) wing it from there

I plan on taking German though, just in case I do decide to go the Egyptology route.

Ahlan!!!

I'm totally decided to be an Egyptologist, even though in Spain it is very very difficult. At the moment I'm studying Archaeology, and I take part in many excavations here (Roman, Phoenician, Bronze Age, Iberian). I also go to an academy of Egyptology to lern ancient Egyptian. Apart from the subjects at University, I study Egyptology in a self-taughing way, which I enjoy a lot, by reading books and more books.

The good thing of living here is that in our archaeological sites, principally Phoenician and Roman, we find a lot of Egyptian artifacts, like scarabs, amulets and alabaster vessels. As in my University there is no professor dedicated to Egyptology, and I am the only one who can translate Egyptian and is acquainted with Egyptian archaeology and artifacts, I am working at the study and publication of a series of scarabs and amulets.

This is my life... and I don't see myself working at other thing. I know that becoming an Egyptologist will be difficult, but I'm going to try with all my illusion and energy to achieve it.

Kisses,

EVIE
