Last Paper In!

Who can write 20 pages of academic prose in one day when she really sets her mind on it? That would be me. That moment when procrastination turns into focused concentration? Good moment. Although it apparently hit too early this time, because I had two hours to spare. ;)

So that’s my last assignment ever for my last class ever. Of this Master’s degree. I have very little faith in my ability to stay away from school for ever. But for now. Yay.

The paper was on Godard, and I’ll probably post it on The Frame once I get it back and, you know, have confirmation that it didn’t totally suck. I feel good about it, which is usually a bad sign, so we’ll see.

Wow, you know what this means? I can read ANYTHING I WANT before going to bed now. I haven’t done that since…well, Christmas, but even then I was trying to read ahead for classes. So, then, since 2006. Really. I’m not sure I remember how to make reading decisions on my own. I’m a little overwhelmed by the possibilities.

    Congratulations. I send in my last paper today too. It feels good. I spent the last hour organizing my computer desktop. Abby was hoping it was my real desk top. Maybe I’ll get to that tomorrow. And I need to go to the book store and pick me out a book.

    For your reading enjoyment I recommend John Steinbeck. Try Pastures of Heaven, Tortilla Flat, or The Wayward Bus. Winter of our Discontent and Cannery Row are good too. I’ll probably pick another one of his myself. I haven’t read Grapes of Wrath or Of Mice and Men so maybe I ought to read one of those. Though it is also a good time to read a baseball book.

    Computer desktops are way more fun to organize than real ones. :)

    Steinbeck, hmm. My only exposure to Steinbeck was when I read The Red Pony a long time ago. It was in a collection of horse-related stories I had, and it traumatized me. I’ve had a negative view of Steinbeck ever since, but I suppose I shouldn’t let a single story read when I was about ten stop me from reading him forever. I’ve heard Of Mice and Men is really good.
