Well, not really. I just seem to have a lot of my plate but for no reason. It is self-inflicted.
You know you’re a nerd when you go to the library and you have to refill the meter twice and pray that you don’t get a ticket for going over the 1-hour parking limit. I checked out some books for the group project for the introduction to the paranormal class I took from Ryan Buell. I’m also going to be taking his demonology course in October, so I checked out some books to help myself prepare for the next few months.
I also went to Borders and found some really interesting books on Shakespeare. Ironically, I came up with my own research topic for Shakespeare-related materials and I got the idea while working on my group project for Ryan’s class. I’ve decided that I’m going to read Will’s text and see how many times ghosts appear and take note of anything paranormal in his plays. I’m a bit excited, so I’m going to go ahead and get started on it…I’m not sure if it would be a good dissertation topic, but then again I’ll never know.
Speaking of dissertation…
I’m trying to decide whether the PhD or the MFA route is right for me at this moment. Technically, I can go for both at different times of my life. But I found an MFA program that fits me where I am right now. The application process is a lot of work, but I think it’s manageable. It’s at Goddard College and it’s a low-residence MFA program so that you can focus on your own creative work and mold your own program.
Anyway, I’m off to the library again. Adios!
