i think this might be a little bit pathetic
I've picked out the ten seminars I want to take over the course of the MA program.
I have the reading list for the MA comprehensive exams (which I wouldn't take for what, two years?) and plan to get a head start on reading/re-reading things, this summer.
I've planned my schedule for the fall, and got extremely stoked when I saw the prof for the Materials & Methods class is my Victorian and British/Irish Fiction prof—because he's a great lecturer and very funny. I also picked two other classes, one taught by the grad coordinator (nice man and I hear he's a good lecturer) and one taught by the husband of my AmNovel prof (I hear he's pretty good too, and I like her
, so...perhaps that's good). The husband of my AmNovel prof is also the TA supervisor, and since I'd like to do that at some point I figure the sooner I make myself known to him, the better.
Did I mention that I'm not even in the freaking program
? My application, while complete, hasn't even made it to the English Department yet (although the grad coordinator has my writing sample). That would be the pathetic part.
Hey Dr. Free-Ride, if English doesn't want me, can I come play with the philosophers?
