But I am in the middle of finals. I’ve mentioned before that I was in the middle of a (short) thesis, but that didn’t keep it from kicking my butt. It’s about the maintenance of hegemony in the retelling of black women’s stories of rape in the black newspapers circa 1889-1910. I’m reminded of the FFX battle with Yunalesca, it started off mildly threatening, then got a bit harder until finally:
Anyway, I finally submitted the final draft on Friday, and I’ve got a forty minute presentation on it on Wednesday. This is also the date I trade in my school issued laptop. We’ve had a love/hate relationship–but I’ll be sad to see it go, along with my time in an undergraduate institution. I hope to still find time to post, but presumably there will be a bit more time in between posts while I save up for a new, hopefully shiny and not as temperamental laptop.
Is anyone else graduating? Getting swamped by finals? Fearing they’ll never see the light of day again?
