I am kind of really excited. I met with my favourite professor today and now he is going to be my supervisor for a directed readings course. This means I get to make my own class and my own reading list and even come up with a snappy name that will look good on a transcript. He has to agree with everything, but ultimately this shit is up to me. And the fact that this prof in particular is going to be working with me on an individual basis makes me so fucking happy. I think I will name the course "Sexuality and the Construction of Gender in Post-Modernity" or something. This summer will be epic. I am also happy because I went to library and got 6 books of poetry and 2 books of literary theory, post-Marxist and feminist. I can't wait to cuddle up in bed and read all this shit. I am a huge nerd. I feel really good about life today.


  1. How many books do you get to put on your reading list. I think I would be too tempted to call my class "Kick Ass Books To Read" and read Bret Easton Ellis.

  2. That would, indeed, be kick ass. I think I'm doing 8-ish articles of theory, 2 novels and 2 books of poetry.
