Truthful Tuesday - Thesis Edition
Ok, so I decided to turn my last post into a Truthful Tuesday because, who knew, it’s Tuesday.
- I emailed my thesis to my first reader a month ago and he had it back to me with copious comments in four days.
- I emailed my thesis to my second reader on March 31 and he got it back to me today. With that, he included a copy of formatting rules and told me that when it was properly formatted he would read it. And could I please have this done by TOMORROW?! Seriously? You sit on it for two weeks and ask me to make inane formatting changes in one day before you’ll read it?
- I need to have it to the department chair (with signatures - no idea how I’m pulling this off since I live in CT and the college is in Buffalo!) by April 26. Then I get to find a printer and get it sent back to Buffalo by May 10. I see much postage in my future.
- Aside from this, I have an observation in school on Monday that I need to prepare a useless pre-conference form for on Friday. Like I have time for this.
- At this time - no room in my brain for anything else.
Truthful Tuesday (U Hate Me edition)
My work week is officially over.
I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and a “recovery” day on Thursday.
Friday is Good Friday, so no school.
Five Day Weekend!!!
It takes me at least half way to the label
‘fore I can even make it through the night
I’m a fighter, I’m a poet, I’m a preacher
I’ve been to school and baby, I’ve been the teacher
I’ve got electric light
And I’ve got second sight
Got amazing powers of observation.
I’ve listened to preachers
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
When I finish my thesis and when I get ahead in my classes a bit, I want to read the following:
- Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes
- The Poetic Edda - Mythology of the Old Norse
- Devil on the Cross by Ngugi Wa’Thiongo
- The Mimic Men by V.S. Naipul
- The Metamorphosis by Ovid
- The Aeneid by Virgil
- Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens (or some other Dickens)
- The Last of the Mohicans by James Fennimore Cooper
- Frontier stories of Bret Harte
- Short stories of Leo Tolstoy
I miss reading.
