Well the Blogger Symposium is over (well as much as these things can ever truly be over), and so now for an update in my life. I promise that we shall return to our regularly scheduled rants about material girls living in this material world tomorrow. But for now, let's talk about me....
I just finished the Fall term. I know, it seemed like I would never end, and to be honest, near the end there, I just was not sure it would. But it is over, and all in all, I was happy with all but the end bits. The courses were in many ways spot on. I learned tons. I got my ass kicked. And in general, I felt like a proper grad student (poor, sleepy, and prone to randomly get really excited about John Donne).
But even the sweetest academic moments come with the bitter. I am tired of paying library fees...urgg. I am tired of walking 30min to campus everday (I know, I really have no complaint here). More importantly, I am tired of feeling inadequate. In undergrad, if you actually cared, you were a rock star. Here I feel if I have not spent half my life reading the big names in every field of thought then I am just a loser. I realize this is a common feeling, but it is the one part of grad school that I hate. That being said it is also the part of grad school that has made me work my ass off, so I am sure it is beneficial. I just wish for a happy medium.
As for everything else, Toronto is still nice. Freakin' cold though. Seriously. And they don't scrap sidewalks in this city...grrr. But I have not fallen yet thanks to my mad hott ice walking skills that I developed at a young age (because I spent half of second grade falling on my bum everytime it snowed).
Well folks, That's about all I have the energy for today. Tomorrow, I think I might do a post on skin. And sometime this week, we shall be talking about sex as promised last year.
