it may be the coffee speaking but YES YES YES  
This morning I met with the professor in communications that is teaching the class on fandom I'm auditing and he thinks that the paper I wrote for him last semester is pretty much READY FOR FUCKING SUBMISSION to media journals right now. 

And since he's on the board of all three of the journals he suggested I should publish in, he should know.

AND he almost thinks I have enough material (in terms of what I wasn't able to cover in the article, but still want to talk about) to make this thing into a book project.  AND even if I don't do it via my dissertation work, he's willing to advise me just through office hours and crap to work on it an other projects I want to do JUST BECAUSE. 

AND he's going to write me recommendations for summer school (since i'm applying so fucking late they're due by friday) and he said "i can certainly praise you with glowing words" as if it would be EASY.

those on the academic filter will know who i'm speaking of, because, you know, I tend to overuse caps when I talk about my work that I turn into this guy, but my joy is too much to be contained under lock.

maybe I really am cut out for this stuff.  Now all I need to do is get the time to get ahead in my reading so I can re-edit this paper that I wrote last semester so I can send it to him so he can tell me if I should reedit more, and *then* make time to work on the paper about Torchwood that I really really really have wanted to write since I heard about ask_captianjack

*absolutely fucking flails* Oh, Kate! That is so awesome! I just...wow!

Of course you're cut out for this stuff! You rock it. :)

And paper on TW? That'll be interesting!

~e!

*dances you with GLEE* eeeeee!

and yeah, but there are days that i have where i think i'll never be ready for it, you know? also? asian studies has a lot higher threshold for 'you must know knowledge' than media studies does.

and dude, you're the one who told me about AskCaptianJack and that's totally what i want to write about -- especially the fact that torchwood_three wouldn't let (him) post that he'd put a new set of answers up, and how the whole thing coalesced without planning/discussion, and, like, had legs, and how it all came down too. it's awesome stuff.

Hey, congratulations!!! That's all incredibly awesome!

Your entries continue to make me optimistic about grad school. :-)

Thanks lady!

And I'm glad I can be encouraging. It really is a fun place. Although I will say that I don't often talk about my school frustrations or feelings of insecurity - not that I don't have them, just that for whatever reason I have trouble putting them out there (I think perhaps at times I'm of the 'if i don't talk about it it won't have power over me' school). Not that they don't exist too, because they certainly do.

This? Does not surprise me.

Because you are JUST THAT AWESOME. Which we have known for aaaaages.

About time other people figured it out.

Your email that I send to your yahoo address keeps getting returned to me. I sent another email last night to you via @livejournal.com; can you tell me if you got it?
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on February 6th, 2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
i got one from you yesterday with a conversation in it (and i got it twice because you sent it to both addresses)

it doesn't make sense because you're saved as a contact and everything. I got another one from you this morning titled 'Donations and a Question'
