i receive my comprehensive exam questions on friday. an entire academic year of preparation has only taught me that i know nothing. but that’s supposed to be the beginning of wisdom, right? in any case, we’ll see how it goes. i’m already in the “complacent” stage of studying, which is a bad and evil place to be. it arrived early this time. hmmm.
if for some reason i don’t pass, i won’t get prospectus research funding from SWGS, and i won’t be able to make my rent this summer. that would be fun.
danny and i are going on our honeymoon on may 20th, so i’ve been inspiring myself to work with the promise of days and days of nothing but sitting on the deck of a ship and various beaches doing nothing but reading sensation novels and sipping on something frozen with a little umbrella in it. riding a bike along the coast of cozumel to go snorkeling. eating lots of meals at midnight buffets. oh, and going to the turtle farm in grand cayman. because i really want to go to the turtle farm.
in preparation, i’m spending far too much money. (which probably isn’t a good idea, in light of that possibility that i’ll fail my exams and not get summer funding.) but i bought this. and this. and this.
all right. enough dawdling. off to speed-read something i should have read months ago.
