obsessedmuch?

Because my LJ world needs to be even smaller, right?

wisdomeagle wrote fluffy Wishverse Willow/Xander, and likes Andromeda. Clearly she and bella_loki need to meet -- in that way in which one "meets" people through LJ, of course.

P.S. The for-credit j-term courses are up. Someone remind me that i really don’t need to take 1-credit "Critical Reading and Discussion" courses. Also, now i want the non-credit catalog (which is usually out after Thanksgiving, as i recall), even though i already have my j-term plan of Victorian porn and gay Shakespeare.

So Qumran, now, yeah.

notes

There is no good reason why i should be up this late doing this project because it was really not that difficult, but the Internet is distracting and i am unfocused. But i am done now. And there is much goodness ahead this week, so i am declaring that it is going to be a good week if it kills me.

la la la, hard at work

This may be one of those weeks where there is no update of substance until the end of the week because i don't have time to do more than jot down fragments in Semagic.

(Sidenote: I'm going to Little Shop on Friday. Anyone wanna come with?)


Anyway, my brother is applying to college and his early action school deadline is midnight tonight, so he's been working on his personal statement (started at 6am this morning) and he e-mailed it to me about an hour ago and we worked through it and honestly, it rocks the cabash. He may be a computer, math & science geek, but he deserves those A's he gets in his English classes. It doesn't hurt, of course, that he's got an impressive resume backing it all up. The kid's more qualified to get into college than i was.


Okay, back to work.

Blessings upon...!!!

My brother was asking what work i have left to do and looking at my list i realized that UPenn (i.e., The School That Requires a 20-Page Writing Sample) is due December 15, not December 1. This makes me less crazy.

(Recently i was also looking at my December paper due dates and realizing it is slightly less insane than i had been fearing.)

However, idiotic grad schools still irk me.

Saturday i'm trying to fill out my Additional Score Report Request Form for the GRE and can't find the department/institution codes on all the websites, so i e-mail 3 places. Responses received today:
Dear Applicant,

The department code can be found here: http://www.gre.org/

Graduate Admissions
UCSD
Um, not easily it can't. And why don't you know the code offhand to give me, you fuckers? At least theirs is the latest of all my deadlines (Jan. 18).
Dear Elizabeth,

It may be that you are viewing the web site maintained by the Office of Graduate Studies. Our program maintains a separate web site http://culturalstudies.ucdavis.edu/, and if you follow the appropriate link to Admissions, you will find both codes.
Stella Mancillas
Okay, in the time it took you to type all that you could have just copied and pasted the appropriate line from http://culturalstudies.ucdavis.edu/ but at least the codes are right on that page so it wasn't difficult for me to find them.


In other good news, the English Department curriculum committee meeting went quite well (longer entry on that to follow at some point), and i got this e-mail from Donfried: "If you find these articles [the ones i listed for him] provide a helpful dialogue than I would proceed with your topic." Yeah, i hereby declare them helpful since i'm sure not about to pick some other topic now.
