inexplicable academic bugbear: when people call their studies ‘Towards’ something, usually ‘a Poetics of X’. does this irritate anyone else
Since I’m in uni my student loan is much higher but it’s so high that I have no idea what to spent it on so this is the moment I’m going to save my money hopefully -no books anymore, I have enough-
Review of Hibernation, Grammatical Bias, and Overneurolinguistics
The pink east sky and the sunset west are lovers that are visited by the seas that carry flower petals for the pink east sky that she wears on her hair when the sun takes her letters for the sunset sky every morning and returns the sunset’s love for her, at the millionth dawn of the world.
Saint Agatha by Andrea Vaccaro, 1635.
The year is 2035. I am a professor at NYU. I teach and research what I love. I go on a walk through the autumnal central park, wearing my favourite woollen coat and a self-knitted scarf. We go to pick up our little one from a playdate and go home to a delicious home-cooked pumpkin soup. We have a calm family night with boardgames and reading to the little one after their bedtime. December rolls around and we visit all the little toy stores with our little one. They get to meet Santa and are absolutely thrilled. We go home and bake cookies together and have a hot tea with a christmas movie playing. Life is good. Life is marvellous.

Now that I am done with virtually anything regarding my undergrad, I can finally start worrying about my grad studies that will start in no less than two weeks of time by now. Does anyone know how not to be so nervous of failing? Or disappointing myself?
- “If my skin was made of marble ,
Would you gaze and at me and marvel ;
Hang a velvet rope around me ,
That curators should not surround me ?
If my lips were smooth and cool
Would you place me on a pedestal
Or would you leave me
As a statue ?”
and to dust we shall return. ✨

i actually really really love measure for measure; it’s pretty different from shakespeare’s other plays that i’ve studied, but i really enjoy its exploration of morality and justice!

so does this mean “if you want to submit, send an email to the editors in chief”? that’s what i’m assuming but the wording is weird

going to the library and spending hours browsing for a book, and when you find it and begin reading, a note falls out - what does it say?
