Back to school!
...or, in other words, Back to the bar!
Seriously, our post-seminar trips to Little Joe's on Taylor St. make me giddy with happiness because it's been so long since I've had a group of people to hang out with like that. Therese used to say that the friendships she made in grad school were the best friendships she ever had, and I looked at my acquaintances in CUPPA and wondered what I was doing wrong. Now I feel like I belong. Or maybe that's the pitcher of McSorley's talking. ("McSorley's?!" you say. It beats PBR, I say.)
Had our first sessions of core class and evolution today. Am starting to feel some research-type questions coalescing in the back of my mind. I'm thinking it will be like shopping... I'll walk around a mall for an hour and find nothing worth buying, then buy one little thing and suddenly the floodgates are opened and I see all sorts of things I want. Perhaps I start out thinking too big. Baby steps, man. Baby steps.
