  • Mood:

cancer sucks.

I just found out that Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick died Sunday night. what I didn't know was that she had been battling cancer all this time; for some reason I thought that she was in remission.

she was very nice to me when she came to speak at Berkeley. that's all I can really say about her: in the brief conversation I had with her she seemed human to a degree that is very rare in the academy.

she was only 58.

this shit is getting scary. I need to be writing. I've just about had it with trying to "make a living." it's completely extraneous to what I'm here for.

rats.
