In Betweens

Question: How is my paper coming?

Answer: Not extremely well.

Why? Because the past two weeks have been an exam-and-essay-filled nightmare.

BUT there is a bright star on the horizon. (No, not one of Keats's "bright stars"-- one a lot less exciting.) I plan on meeting with a professor of Historical American Lit today at three to discuss women and colonialism and I am praaayyyiiinnggg something in our conversation sparks a new idea or angle because, dear friends, I am FRESH OUT.

If anyone has any interesting sources I could explore about women and colonialism, I will give you the greatest high-five the universe has ever known.

  1. Misery love company and I feel like we could be best friends right now! I understand all too well about a nightmarish couple of weeks!... I just did a google search and found an article that may be talking about what you are (not for sure, i haven't been following you...) But I just copied and pasted the sources THEY used for THEIR article.. maybe you could glean something. Good luck! You'll rock this!
