important question: when you publish a scholarly book, how does the index get made? surely there is a program to do this, or a person who has professional expertise at this. what im saying is, do I the writer of sad book have to do??? and if so, why wasnt i warned in my first or second year of graduate school?
i had forgotten how being a professor means people say theyre going to come to your office to talk to you and then they dont. glad to have that reminder two weeks before the start of the semester. A+ on being annoying everyone!
i think there might be a fundamental difference between people who carefully pull out the aluminum foil from the roll so as to make sure it’s a perfect fit and not waste any, and those who just rip off a piece hoping it’s big enough b/c it’s so annoying when it’s too small
i think the people at the library are making fun of me behind my back for ordering so many books
a lot of time when i write, i feel myself making this weird, confused, skeptical, appalled face because i’m not sure exactly where the thought is going and it might be absurd and stupid but i also want to keep writing in case it ends being somewhere good. as im writing im thinking “whoa is THAT what im writing why?” but i keep writing anyway.
(I should say that sometimes it turns out to be an interesting thought but also it sometimes turns into bullshit and/or nonsense)
i want it to be the weekend, and my eye to stop twitching, and second episode of outlander to be released. and to be able to watch it somehow.
