I attended my first dissertation defense yesterday. I came home and told W. that we’ll be doing theater warm-ups before mine.
I organized my closet and now I’m too tired to cook dinner. This is peak Kimberly.
Trying on a new epithet: librariacafan.
I’ve fallen down an internet rabbit hole! My current work = reading about cosplay. Cosplay is part of fandom, and I feel disconnected from fandom so I started listening to Fansplaining to get me back in touch, and that took me to Wattpad, and then I started reading a Wattpad blog post that linked to Fanlore (which I already knew about but have never explored in-depth) and now I guess I’m going to just die of starvation while reading all of Fanlore? But also, please stay tuned for details about my upcoming fic, Rupert Giles, Actual School Librarian.
I could learn to repair drywall and fix sinking bathroom tile but for now I’m just going to believe handypeople are magic.
Just submitted my first draft of my first chapter of my comps lit review to my committee for feedback, so it’s probably time for another high five.
You can tell I’m approaching middle age because I think of my car as my new car and I just got an email from CarMax saying I bought it 5 years ago today.
Submitted a solo-authored manuscript today, so in true millennial fashion, I feel like I deserve many high fives.
Writing music and reading music are different music. My writing music is video game or film scores. My reading music is chill beats, piano, quiet instrumental stuff. What about you? What’s your writing music? What’s your reading music?
I need to be reading & writing about information literacy as a sociocultural/sociotechnical practice, but I think swiss cheese Mom-brain is incompatible with Practice Theory. I just can’t handle words like “ontological” and “epistemological” when I’m running on 2 weeks of poor sleep because of my kid teething and never napping.
I’m trying to find a word to help me navigate these times in 2019. Something having to do with cycles… Being like the moon or like water… Working hard at high tide? Still figuring it out.
