A few people have been asking why I haven’t written anything lately. The short answer is I’ve been super busy with work and uni and emotions and stuff. The longer answer is below.
I wake up and I’m all – I got this!
I check my emails and I’m all
I get soy instead of skim milk
It’s time to teach
My students deny the existence of racism or sexism or homophobia
My students misuse ‘whom’
I actually open the file entitled ‘PhD draft 2′
I reread the paragraph I worked on yesterday and it makes sense
My supervisor tells me I need to rewrite something I still don’t understand
I forget what my thesis is actually about
I stop caring that I’ve forgotten
Someone reminds me that my life will be better when this is over
And then adds ‘You can finally find a husband’
I remember that it’s been four and a half years since my mind was free from this intellectual strait jacket
I do the only thing I know how
