It’s fall.

October 4th, 2005 · No Comments

When did it turn into fall? This is bad. Not that I don’t like fall– I do. I just have too much I was supposed to do this summer. Now I’m scrambling at the last minute.

I know, I know. What else is new?

I’d like it better, though, if it was a nice fall. Sweater-weather, you know? But no. Instead we get freezing winds, and I can’t even enjoy crunching the leaves, because it rained all day and soaked them. Hmph. And I could see my breath when I walked home from work today.

Draft of prospectus is nearly done. Going to finish draft of Justification portion tomorrow, when I’m not so tired. Got 3 hours of sleep last night, after being up till four working on a presentation on Dorothy L. Sayers and her contemporaries. Must sleep soon. Presentation went well, though. At least I’m keeping up with my coursework, even if it is coming down to crunch time with the prospectus thing.

In the meantime, I’m moved to do a rhetorical analysis of Dumbledore’s persuasive discourse in Harry Potter. Except that I know next to nothing about rhetoric. And I already have three papers I could/want to write about HP.

I’d also like to analyze the rhetoric of shipper essays.

And I’m considering going for a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Composition rather than literature.
