Day 23 – Someday You Will Find Me Caught Beneath A Landslide (of Essays)

I have to make this quick because I desperately need to sleep. I’m even doing this on my mobile because for once I am in bed before midnight. Huzzah!


I wonder if this still works in your twenties…

I really don’t have much to say. We got our second round of essays today so that’s a little exciting. I’m pretty sure all of mine are TV related and quite a few of the essays in the pile were from my classes. I wonder if this means they have been converted. They haven’t even met my other supervisor yet. Once you get that nod of approval, there’s no going back. It’s postgrad for you, buddy.

I have a busy weekend ahead: finishing my proposal, preparing for tutorials, marking essays and hopefully watching The Only Lovers Left Alive. I hope I get through all of that. That probably means I should sleep now. I wanted to share photos from around my desk to show the kind of environment I’ve created for myself but I don’t have time tonight. I’m getting the grumpy feeling every day now, I’m definitely too tired for life in general.

Things I did today instead of working

  • Bought magazine holders so that I can organise all my research and tutorial stuff
  • Bought Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch because I apparently decided I don’t have enough distractions

Once you pop, you can’t stop

  • Confirmed my shopping addiction by ultimately ignoring Tartt’s book when I got home so that I can read Notes from the Underground instead
  • Tried to rest my brain by watching Castle. I know Bourdieu is my personal cultural fave but damn I miss industry talk. I need my primary supervisor to come back so that I can shift my brain towards the things I’m more passionate about. Rogers et al, give me strength!

Random “I love Clueless but I don’t know how this got stuck in my head” lyrics:

I’m so fancy
You already know
I’m in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo
I’m so fancy
Can’t you taste this gold?
Remember my name
‘Bout to blow

– Iggy Azalea

Because nothing says fancy like being in bed by 7pm on a Friday.
