I’m back from my (much longer than) three week sabatical and all I can say is: YAY! Tumblr! Friends! Life! Television! I’ve missed you all so much *sob*
I have been wracking my brain these past few weeks trying to finish up my comprehensive exams, and today I finally turned in my three major papers. 70+ pages, no bullshit, and GAWD am I tired! I had to go to Office Depot because my printer ran out of ink! SH*T!
Anyhoot. The bulk of my work is done, but I still have to appear before a panel of professors next week and do the “orals” part.
Get your mind out of the gutter! It’s not dirty, you perv! Just tedious!
LOL, I forgive you.
In case you can’t tell, I’m mega-delirious right now. I’m sleep-deprived!
Here are my three paper titles. I really want to share one with all my Tumblr friends. If self-indulgence gets the better of me, I might just go ahead and post it.
Guess which one it is!
Such Stuff as Dreams are Made on:
Prospero’s Role as Playwright Surrogate in The Tempest
Hmmm. Fun, but no.
Not that one.
The Wisdom of the Serpent: Antimodern Anxieties
in The Damnation of Theron Ware and Elmer Gantry
Both are great books (reviews to come soon).
But no… not that one either.
Bobby, Have You Tried Not Being a Mutant?
Queer Identity and Minority Status in the X-Men Film Universe
***DING DING DING DING DING!!!***
To all my friends, please hold on just a while longer. I want desperately to send meaty replies to all your lovely messages and email, but tonight I really gotta just chill out for a bit. My master plan is to:
1. Eat pizza.
2. Watch the BBC version of Hamlet, starring David Tennant
3. Go to bed early or else pass out in front of the TV.
*Heaaaaaven. I’m in heaaaaaaaven…*
Also, would anyone would be so kind as to send me positive vibes next Thursday? That’s the date I have to meet with my professors. It’s the final hurdle I need to jump to get my masters degree! I feel really good about my papers, but I’m a pessimist at heart. That doesn’t mean that I’m negative, I just always have to brace myself for the worst case scenario. BUT STILL I’m hoping for the best!
Will you please hope with me?
Also: Shout out to all the nice people who decided to follow me (and all the followers who didn’t unfollow me) while I was M.I.A.
Wassup? How you doing? *Wink*
