 So much stuff has gone down that I don't even know where to begin so I will start from the earliest news and work my way to the present.
  • I already talked about my thesis presentation so I won't rehash that except to say that professors stopped me to tell me mine was the best etc and that they can't wait to see how it turns out. Which pleases me to no end. I don't need to be the best, but it is a relief to me that all  my hard work paid off and that people were receptive to it and excited for it. This makes me more motivated to get it going because I know that it's something new and interesting to a lot of different historians. 
  • I heard from my summer internship before I presented my paper but did not get around to talking about/dealing with it until this week because I was so busy. I've officially got a job for this summer at the same place and I start June 7th. 
  • CHUCK PALAHNIUK

Let me just start off by saying that Chuck Palahniuk is a ridiculously genuine person. He was a total gentleman even when he was talking about how crass his work could be. He was like "That's no me, but I had to write it for that reason. I had to write the most disgusting shocking thing that came into my mind." 

I love him. The whole experience was just completely positive and when I came out of the theater I was in a haze of comfort. I couldn't have asked for anything more and nothing I can write or say will do this experience or Chuck Palahniuk justice.

HIS NEW BOOK IS AMAZING. THE END


This is what he had us blow up during the breaks between the question and answer, the reading, etc.:



  •  Then I didn't sleep for two days while I finished and turned in my paper. And found out I got an A on it and in the class and I could have wept with relief because I threw myself into this class.
  • I got a B in the other class which was less work and I still don't know how that worked out when I turned everything in on time and am still fucking dicking with copyright people. Seriously. STILL EMAILING THESE TWATS POST-SEMESTER. That's totally a B. I would be more irritated about this if I cared but I don't. I just care about it affecting my GPA. Obnoxious but ditching this bs to do my Thesis instead was the best idea ever because this class wasn't even something I wanted to do. The end.
  • I went to a going away party for my friend that is moving to texas and getting married and since I hadn't eaten for two days I got super drunk off of one drink , ate and then drank three more and everything was amaaazing. I needed that after this ridiculously stressful semester.
  • JONATHAN RICHMAN. I finally got to see him live. He's ridiculous and I laughed a lot and it was totally worth dealing with all the people bitching about the small space and hitting me with their obnoxiously huge bag.
  • I am basically still exhausted from this semester and am sucking at being a real person so I am just reading Crime and Punishment. The end

I've never read anything by Chuck P. (I have one around here somewhere that a friend sent me, that I haven't gotten around to yet), but I'm really glad that hearing him talk was such a positive experience. I mean. I only sputtered at Neil Gaiman for like, a minute and I was over the moon, so I can only imagine. ♥
