Monday, August 24, 2009


I have to say, I have been overwhelmed by the birthday wishes I have received today. FB came through for me.... And I think I can honestly say that I am one year wiser since finally have finished the M.A. program.

Dreaming of Frida

I just woke up from a very vivid dream where I was playing Frida Kahlo in a stage play. Let's just say it involved costumes, pennies, a Christina Aguilar song, and my nephew James. Bizarre.

Somethings I have been thinking about

Time has been stretching out for me in a strange way. I have been officially done with being a grad student since Tuesday, August 4 when I turned in 4 copies of my thesis to the graduate office. I successfully defended my thesis on Wednesday, July 29; met my advisor for final copy editing on Thursday, July 30; got sick and rested for a couple days and then turned everything in.

Since the fourth, which was less than a week ago, I have felt like crap, napping when I can but unable to fall asleep until 4 am no matter what I did that day or if I took a nap. So much to do but no desire to do it.

So, I have been reading a lot online. Here are a couple things I have been reading that I have been ruminating about:

An Immodest Proposal

Is the U.S. on the bring of Fascism?

I also joined Facebook and I have to say, I'm bored with it. It is clunky, non-intuitive, and not much fun. Meh, no big deal.

I'm out. Planning on cleaning up my thesis office and turning it into a teaching office today. And cleaning my room and bathroom. And calling all the friends I have not seen in forever to schedule time together now that I am no longer a student. Not exciting stuff, really.
