So since my last post my optimism has dwindled. I love grad school and I love literature, but sometimes you just wish that after hammering out a brilliant essay or chapter you could clear your desk and say, “I have nothing else to work on”. That has not been the case at all this quarter. Its like a tag team, even though one assignment reaches the end, it just hands me off to the next item on another syllabus to do another run again and then again….and again.

And let’s be honest – this weather is not helping. It seems as if spring came and skipped over summer and went straight into late fall. Turning on the heat on May 12 was a sad sad day.

That’s all for today – another book review coming up soon!
