The exciting news is that today I found out that I've been accepted as a panelist on the "Travel in Early Middle English Texts" session at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo! As such, I will be presenting a paper based on part of my thesis there next May, and then I'll get to witness all the zaniness that I hear about first hand! And I'll get to see the professor who directed my thesis! It's all going to be terribly thrilling.

But first I need to survive this week.

After many installations, instructions on using Unicode, and researching Unicode symbols, my computer system is super-duper-up-to-date AND I CAN TYPE IN ANGLO-SAXON!!!!

HAHAHAA!

Which means I can now type up my palaeography homework AND MORE IMPORTANTLY I WILL NOT HAVE TO DRAW IN ALL THE EXTRA LETTERS FOR THE MIDDLE ENGLISH PORTIONS OF MY THESIS.

And now, if I want to accomplish anything during spring break, I should probably start editing.

If I survive this week, I might survive the rest of the semester.

- I have a presentation in class tomorrow (part of my horrible Wednesdays, I'm stuck in two back-to-back three-hour courses).
- I'm trying to turn in chapter three of my thesis... tomorrow. Erm.
- Everyone in the department has been roped into getting ready for Vagantes.
- I think my paper for that is done. I present on Saturday, regardless.

So. Yeah.

No electricity yesterday.

No hot water today, and none to be had until tomorrow because apparently the hot water heater has been leaking (which finally answers the question about why our utilities bill has been high).

Can this week please be over now?

I just want some time to be able to sit down and write about traveling and monsters.

At least we have electricity today, and cold water.

Ok, I have my prospectus and the first of my papers turned in. So I need to finish writing one, then edit it and the other paper, then turn both of them in before 5 tomorrow. And I took my French Reading exam on Saturday, I think it went well.

PS- British Library, any time you want to tell me what the status of my image order is, that would be awesome.
elirrina: (read!)
I have an approved thesis topic! Hurrah!
