    @Bopie5!! i am SO STOKED for you!!
  2. would taking a year off after already having two years-ish of time off in the past be any kind of disadvantage?
  3. just want to throw in how much i appreciate everyone's perspectives in here and how helpful this thread is in making a decision.

    "yinz" is the pittsburgh/appalachian "y'all" but much funnier. i want to say it comes from scots-irish. my current assignment for film class has me citing youtube and it's been launching me into a half-serious contemplation of uh, everything. who would have thought ten or twelve years ago we'd be citing the cool video clip website for academic purposes? sure, there's runaway irreversible climate change and i lose my insurance this month, but i can cite youtube! (wow, i got depressing fast. i swear i'm fun in real life!) but i think my excitement slash fascination is just a curiosity about internet culture and memory.

    are you sure they're a real undergrad and not just christopher walken in makeup? purdue's mla guide online has been my lifeline to figuring out where the punctuation and parentheses go together when i cite things. i'm so useless without it, haha. one of these days, i need to just send them a "thank you" card. on classism, i was actually thinking at work last night about "y'all" and "all 'y'all"-- a guest used them in the same sentence! hence the thought- - and a lot of derisive/defensive sentiments around the word that i've heard growing up. there are plenty of environments down here where you aren't going to use or hear it, but both fill in so perfectly what i think is a glaring gap in the english language. ( i will mock pittsburgh and their "yinz" all i want, though.)

    though i know nothing of german grammar in reality, the thought of german comma usage tickles me because german is inherently sort of funny to me. (i mean that in the least-worse sounding way, of course.) russian has some peculiar rules for comma placement that throw me off switching back and forth every day. i edited a friend's friend's paper a bit back for a business course and had to write a gentle overview at the end about subject/verb agreement. and other things. she was bright, but i think just struggled on paper? i have trouble all the time with punctuation inside quotation marks, now that i think about it.

    are there other sites besides upenn cfp for conference/journal submission info? love cfp but the organization of the site sometimes bugs me.

    hah, it's a small and funny world. good luck and fingers crossed for you! i thought about applying there but ultimately didn't feel it was a good fit and instead applied for a teaching fellowship in nyc. i'm still waiting on a few decisions and waitlist movements but already thinking about 2020. it's too much. i'm leaving for vacation tomorrow morning and so, so ready.
