Things I did today:

  • Go to America Reads orientation
  • Find out NYU took away my federal work study without telling me
  • Go to financial aid office. Argue. Accomplish nothing.
  • Panic about paying for my [fairly un-extravangant] lifestyle. (I would like to take the time now to say fuck you to how expensive course books are.)
  • Go home and call brother. Re-come out to him. (Remind him?) Get told I am confused. (Last time he told me it was impossible to be attracted to more than one gender. So I guess it's a step up.) Get told I am rejecting my femininity because of male privilege. I think this is a good moment to point out that I said nothing regarding my gender, just my sexual orientation. WHAT DOES WHO I LIKE HAVE TO DO WITH MY GENDER? No wait, this is the entire problem, isn't it?
  • Talk to [livejournal.com profile] xturncoatxiii on the phone. ... Talk to him on LJ. ...Talk to him on IM. ... Fuck it, I think if we could we would string tin cans between our windows.
  • Do about 1/20 of my homework (Holy shit you guys my classes are SO reading intensive this semester. Just for kicks I'll tell you what I have to read for Monday below)
  • Watch LOTR bloopers in the kitchen
  • Give the day up as lost, eat an entire bar of chocolate, wash it down with hot chocolate, and go to bed.

A day in the life. Good times.

Right so, Monday is my second day of classes (Thursday doesn't count; it was just sections), and I have SO MUCH READING. I have to read:
A packet about The Arabian Nights, 63 pages in The Arabian Nights: A Companion by Robert Irwin, Billy Budd by Herman Melville, the introduction to The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism, (Keep a journal on Melville and Norton readings), lines 1-178 of Beowulf, Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, William Caxton's prologue to Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, an article on the sex/gender binary, an article on grammatical gender and sexism (the kinds of dense academic articles that can take ten minutes per paragraph)

YEA! And the first homework assignment is always light!

Oh god.

EDIT: P.S. Did I mention that I'm officially interning at a new literary agency? Their children's agent did Carrie Jones' Need! Yay excitement! I remember visiting Bloomsbury last spring and seeing the next book, Captivate, when it was still in the works and they couldn't figure out what part of the chick's face to make golden on the cover.
