wanting it both ways

i didn’t do my homework but i did do this

  • N: sshrc really fucked me over as well (though sounds like mcgill fucked you over there, not sshrc)
Example #304850583405 of my father being a monster. It’s a classic Chinese father move — we never speak, but since I’ve semi-astonished him with my ability to get into a few institutions whose names he has some borderline Pavlovian associations with, he’s naturally in a position to give advice! He doesn’t know the first thing about the field, the departments associated with my field, my project or, really, me, but isn’t the presumption and demeaning arrogance in this email just DELIGHTFUL? I talk about my mother often, but I’d be a complete mess without her. In fact, I might resemble the sterling example of narrow-mindedness as shown above. Hating men begins with daddy issues — sure, I’d buy that.

"You seem great!" people have been saying to me lately. "You seem to be thinking of words so much more easily!"

Which on the one hand is nice, I mean. But on the other, I kind of wanted to believe that no one noticed how hard it was to think of words when I was sick, that I’d just created…

Sick, sluggish Jane gets to live here too! Carrie and I are going to co-author a book one day. We will, we will.
