Anonymous asked: Sticky string of questions from a newcomer: You're in school, yes? What do you study? Near to finishing? Running on a deadline? After a certain future? Thoughts on higher education in general? Merits or horror stories of your particular institution? Apologies if this sounds like the Thanksgiving dinner table salvo; no answers required. You knew that, of course.
I am in school, finishing up the last semester of my English degree. Long term future: Professorship in Linguistics/Literature/English, adventures. Short term: Adventures (preferably ones that pay me). Merits: It’s a great school and all of the professors in the English department are fantastic. Horrors: It’s a really small town. I do not like small towns.
