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

sociology shindig

When our department's annual Winter Party was announced this year, I deleted the email invites. After attending the last two Winter Parties, and as Jeremy describes, being "suicidally bored," I wasn't about to even consider going this year for 2 main reasons (1) I greatly dislike and generally avoid crowds (especially when they are referred to as "parties") of more than 6-8 people and (2) there is something to be said for the general social ineptitude of sociologists (I think that over-thinking plays a role in this). Its not that everyone doesn't mean well, but carrying on conversations can be especially awkward. But, then there is the whole "department bonding" aspect of the party. And since I don't go to the Karaoke gatherings, and there aren't many femsem potlucks this semester ("femsem" is dept. slang for our gathering of people who study gender), I figured a little bonding of some sort would be okay. And some people I know and like are going, which will hopefully make it more fun. But, I can always leave when I want and I probably won't stay too long.
