Heading to Thesis Hole, Why-o-Me

Mikaela says:
So the M's are getting masters. Two Ms are less freaked out about this than the other. I'll let you speculate wildly on that one for yourselves.

I thought it would be fun to keep a running list of all those things I want to do but will deprive myself of while I write like the wind (a whiny, illiterate, confused wind, let it be known) over the next 6 weeks. (Ah!)

  1. Reading Chomsky's Hegemony or Survival
  2. Seeing movies -- any movies
  3. Running
  4. Shopping
  5. Cooking
  6. Cleaning
  7. Servicing the car
  8. Volunteering
Hmmm, now I'm thinking of this in a new light... I have a get-out-of-jail-free card for ANYTHING that comes up in the next 6 weeks! I don't have to say yes to ANYTHING... Wow, that's powerful. The freedom, the power, the ... oh yeah ... pain.

"Why me? Why me? Why get a master's with six whole weeks left to write when I could instead take the next six YEARS anticipating getting a master's and still being too scared to write? Why me?"

Just kidding... You know I love to tease you. :-)

Point taken. I am priviledged even to have the opportunity to GET a masters and shouldn't take it for granted in the heat (PAIN) of the moment.

Are we really doing this? I feel like I'm growing up--and if folks knew my age they'd think that was weird. Mikaela, if you're really going to do it I guess I will to...:-)

by the way, i have that book so don't buy it.

Things I'd rather be doing:

1. Making music mixes for moc.
2. Camping--this is the best time of year!!!
3. Reading up on Gramsci.
4. Hanging out with m&m
5. Going to the yamboree...oh wait, I actually am going to do that. my bad.
6. Writing essays and blogs about anything other than my project.
