grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

2 whole weeks

Jo is going to NYC for 2 whole weeks. She leaves this Friday. I am so very excited for her- she'll get to see all our wonderful friends and get in some quality time in the city! She'll be doing wonderful things like getting lost in the Strand, having a beer at the Gingerman and riding the LIRR to E. Northport! I will also miss having her around. We aren't necessarily co-dependent, but we like just being around each other. Just doing different things in the same apartment is good for us. So, these next two weeks will seem kind of empty, but I'll try to capitalize on that solitude by getting some serious turning-the-masters-into-an-article done. We'll have to see how that progresses. I have worked on it- made tons of notes, actually read through the notes from my defense (not so painful a couple months later) and I have started a file called "article1.doc". The process of deleting extraneous (yes, repetitive and even rambling) info, telling 1 coherent story, citing all the right people, not having a lit review that sucks, all while sticking to the prescribed article format is fucking terrifying. When did I tell my advisor I would send something to her? Beginning of February? Yikes. I think I'll need to buy some more beer to tackle that this weekend. Yup, folks, my prescription for writer's block and adjustment to academia (without becoming a tool) is a nice dark beer (or 2). Since I got out of my class this evening I have done nothing (watched TV and ate dinner mostly) and I have a million things I ought to be doing. There are always a million things I ought to be doing and I am becoming okay with that. But after staying up very late last night writing and reading Bourdieu's analysis of Algeria (if you don't know, it isn't worth explaining- really), tonight I might just take a bath and get into bed. (and then maybe I'll do some work)
