I will never, ever try to write on George Eliot again. I’m getting to the point where I feel like there’s nothing to say that either she or some other critic hasn’t said before (and much more eloquently at that).
Good news: I have a draft of a statement of
bullshit purpose! Huzzah! Now I just have to write a Statement of Teaching Purpose and I’m ready to send in that application.
Bad news: I still haven’t started my seminar papers (see above). I’m reaching the delusional phase where I try to convince myself that a thesis statement really isn’t necessary…
