More than survival!

This semester turned out great. I gave two well-received papers at conferences, have at least two three excellent grades, and feel good about the work I did in all my classes, including having been TA for Verna Foster’s intro to drama class. Quite the change for me. Needless to say, I am happy.

This summer I’ll be taking a Chaucer class, going to weddings, and preparing for my PhD qualifying exams. And in the fall I’ll be Edward Wheatley’s research assistant. He’s working on the medieval handling of disability, very cool stuff, which could gel very nicely with my own current interest, “abandonment” in the middle ages.

Note: Updated from Saturday, with the important change noted with a strong element.
