    Lol I checked the results page immediately this morning and then had conflicting feelings of relief and impatient desperation. Still feeling that feeling.

    These fu**ers referred me to the MAPH program. Lol, you think I want to suckle at the teat of UChicago so badly that I'd get another Masters and pay 50k for it? I would have preferred a flat-out rejection. Get bent, scu*bags

    2 publi, ton of research experience, strong lor. If Harvard is impressed with me, why wouldn't you? Someone thinks they're all that and a Harvard degree.

    No shame! I was able to take a class on his work in undergrad and fell in love. If Beale Street Could Talk is excellent and there's now a movie on it that I highly recommend. Giovanni's Room is my favorite, I wrote my undergrad capstone on it, and Go Tell it on the Mountain is excellent (his first novel and semi-autobiographical). He also wrote a billion essays which are phenomenal, there's one in particular about his good friend Lorraine Hansberry right after she died called "Sweet Lorraine" that is just lovely.

    That awkward moment when...

    Your UPenn SoP says "Penn State" (to which you are not even applying) three times and you just barely catch it in time to delete the one you uploaded and replace it with one that actually has the correct school name in it. When one of your SoPs says "additionally" twice in the same paragraph.

    It makes me think of this article "I Stand Here Limpiando: Maternal Knowledge, Chicana Subjectivity, and Mother-Daughter Bonding" by Christina Herrera. It's all about recognizing the communicative, inter-generational power of women's labor. Super cool stuff.

    Anyone been watching Tidying Up on Netflix? I found a new hobby to get me through the next few weeks- throwing things away! I've already done my closet and all of my makeup. I'm telling myself I'm making it easier to move wherever I end up getting in 😕

    Yes. I’ve just been reading her poetry since I found out this morning, feeling very sad but also grateful for her talent and outlook on life.

    I LOVE Adore. That snatch game? I died. I’m still dying thinking about it.

    Unrelated but has anyone seen the thread in waiting it out called "that awkward moment when..."? It is making me feel a lot better about almost sending in my UPenn SoP with "Penn State" written in it, or that one SoP in which I said "additionally" twice in the same paragraph. Plus, it's hilarious.

    Has anyone seen The End of the F$cking World on Netflix? The soundtrack is serious music goals.
