    I wish there was a movie of Infinite Jest so I could just watch that instead of reading the book. I'm always telling my roommate that he's a total rube for reading Anna Kerenina right now

    Did grad cafe change the way the search tool works on the Results page or something? All of my old searches bring up no results now...anyone else having this problem? Probably a blessing in disguise lol

    Anyone else here obsessed with Rosalía's 2018 album El Mal Querer? It's all I can listen to...

    I think your best bet is to look up each school you're applying to on the Results page and see if people posted getting interviews for those schools in previous years.

    Throwing things back to the psychoanalysis conversation...anyone here ever think about just becoming a psychoanalyst as a plan B.

    I taught Of Mice and Men in a 9th grade English class last year and all my students started using the word "tart" instead of slut because of it...not exactly the result i was hoping for

    Anyone here seen Pom Poko? It's a really fun and strange Studio Ghibli movie about shapeshifting Raccoon Dogs with giant testicles

    Ah just saw on results page that someone got the interview email from Emory WGSS, so I think I'm down for the count there

    @savay I read Disturbing Attachments last year and loved it...it pretty much got me to apply to Emory's WGSS program, where Amin teaches (along with Michael Moon and Lynne Huffer). Actually I'm supposed to hear back from them today about whether or not I got an interview! They very kindly sent an email to everyone in December telling us we'd hear about interviews by the 11th. @dilby I haven't gamed in years but What Remains of Edith Finch sounds so lovely I'm downloading it today!

    I'm usually a very sound sleeper but in the past week my sleep has been horrible...due to a variety of factors I think but definitely decision anticipation is a big part. The other night I was having auditory hallucinations that kept me up ಠ_ಠ

    @Bopie5 your thesis reminds me of HIM from powerpuff girls...the queerest and most brilliant villain out there @dilby I saw Madeline's Madeline in September and I really haven't stopped thinking about it since...

    Our trash society generally thinks the ability to teach is worthless so I feel like a lot of it comes down the question of whether the ppl on an adcom share that view or reject it. You would think in an education system a lot of people would value pedagogy but unfortunately I don't think that's the case.
