Filling out Pat Skarda’s “Student Introduction for Romantic Poetry and Prose,” i found that, for now at least, i am done attempting to impress professors. I’m just putting myself on the paper, no pretensions except my own fun playing with pretensions. I feel like this is how my semester has been so far, just me doing my own thing, not trying to impress anyone else. At least this is how i like to look at it. The alternative of course is just that i am a lazy slacker who doesn’t care about anything anymore. We’ll see how the semester progresses, as i am an overachieving lazy slacker pretentious brat.
