  • Mood:


I went ahead and started organizing today. just a feeling I got that it might be good to start now. I made it through about 30 pages so I think this will work out well for handing it in monday. I won't have a lot of time to look at it over the weekend as I will be busy panicking about monday's class.

it looks ok I think. who the hell knows. what is a dissertation supposed to do? "make a significant scholarly contribution to the field." well, no one that I know of has thought to put Deleuze and Levinas together in one room. and as far as I know no one has proposed that part of their autobiography be a recounting of their research into the limits of language over a twenty-year period.

so why not do both at once. the worst that can happen is that Judith will say throw away the first fifty pages and start from there. or something like that. I mean I guess the very worst that could happen would be that she said the whole thing stinks and that I have to start all over again but realistically I don't think that will happen. but it could. especially if I don't think it could, right? so I should get all nervous now.

well there's not much more to be done at the moment so I might as well relax and save the tears for later. I've read other dissertations and can say that mine is at least more interesting than some of them.
