Tuesday (Tired of my Preface) Musings

I’m tired of my preface. Actually, I’m tired of my thesis. I got to this point with my MA too, but I’m really tired of dealing with this document. I plan to send it out Friday and then at least it is out of my hands. I defend January 2, so I’m looking forward to that and being done. I love school but I’ve been going straight for eight years. Time for a break.

In other news, one of my students was moved to tears by The Things They Carried. I didn’t really expect them to love the story. It’s difficult and a lot of them simply don’t take the time to really delve into the text, so I was pleasantly surprised to get such a genuine reaction out of someone.

The Elegant Variation is hosting a lovely give away.
