There are really only 3 people that come up with my name
A Beth Parthum who does paper making/artist and is twice my age
And an Elizabeth Parthum who is married to my... great uncle? She's related
O YEA.. and Irine Elizabeth Parthum who is a lawyer. That's only interesting cause I'm pretty sure my great uncle is a lawyer.
I was suprised to see much more of myself come up as Beth rather then Elizabeth. I have had a hard time trying to decide which to go with professionally, but I think my mind is made up.
First is the typical, Facebook (not me), Linkdin, and Dance-tech ;). There is a lot on myself from the university of illinois shows I've worked on. Killer Joe, Crucible, History of American Film, things like that. Studio dance 2. I did an interview with the Buzz for the Armory Free Theatre. (http://the217.com/articles/view/one_on_one_with_beth_parthum_produc...) The things from my undergraduate suprised me, but I'm glad it comes up with my name. "Relay for Life...." (http://www.desales.edu/default.aspx?pageid=6687)was certainly unexpected even though I'm not sure why. I was part of it for 4 years and co-chaired the event for 2. I think it gives me hope that I will be able to continue doing good in the world even if I'm in grad school for a short time.
I think this almost gave me a new appreciation for how the world can see a person. I'm an eclectic soul with good parts involved. It's nice not to see legal issues associated with you online :)
