If you're looking for me this week, I'll be paper writing next to this crackling fire...
This is our common room. They've decorated it up for the holidays and someone stokes the fire every hour or so. It's marvelous!
As for the papers themselves, I'm working on a 10-page piece that is half-review of theories of adaptation and half-application to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Then I have a 20-page piece for next week looking at the use of impressionism in Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now--also using adaptation theories. Those are the biggies between now and break. Wish me luck!
And, finally, Happy Advent!
Update: Just submitted the first paper of my grad school career!
Also, who ever decided the term for "approaching something as a whole" should be "holistic" rather than "wholistic"? Lame.
