I also didn't get to meet with Katie yesterday; she also had job talks to attend. It's just that time of the academic year. I'll either go in tomorrow or Friday and talk over my list with her; no worries.
What I do need to do now is finish working on my fellowship materials. Revised my c.v. (putting in all the impressive stuff, and then bowdlerizing it to make it fellowship-safe; I'm not *sure* that all the smut stuff would hurt it, but I figure better not to take the chance, given that it still looks reasonably impressive even if I take out everything with the words 'erotica' and/or 'sex') yesterday, picked up an official transcript, filled out the formal application. Now I have to do the hard part - revising my research project description and my statement of purpose from last year. My aims haven't changed significantly since then, but various specifics have changed; I'm not sure if it'll be a quick job or a slow one. I guess I'll find out.
I have about three hours from....mark. One way or another, it has to be done by then. At 3, meeting with Professor Shannon to discuss a paper, 3:30, stop in library and look up bio-bibliographies info, 4:00, go to department and try to drop off fellowship material (if recommendations are in), 4:30, read stories for workshop and write critiques, 5:30, eat dinner, 6:00 - 9:30, workshop.
Oof. I really can't afford to lose these morning hours very often!
