I am a wannabe, I think. I’ve always been interested in Egyptian history, and read a lot about it. I’ve only taken one class on it, and my current school only offers one, so I doubt I’ll be getting much more formal schooling on Egyptology until Grad School.
Nevertheless, it my favorite academic subject. I’m planning on working on learning to read Middle Egyptian this summer, which should be a nice challenge.
I’m also really interested in the mythology (and other ancient mythologies as well), and I remember seeing Fierra make a kick-ass post concerning that, so I hope she shows up.
I know there’s someone on the boards who knows more about this topic than me.
