my undergrad institution is where they keep jeremy bentham's beautiful mummified corpse on display. i still think about him wistfully sometimes - we shared a lot of good memories, him encased in his glass cabinet, me proudly showing him off to uneasy prospective students...

woah i just listened to a podcast about this! so cool. were you ever on the twitter feed?

omg did you go to ucl? i did my study abroad at kcl, so i guess i'm pledging my allegiance to the camp that had once kidnapped (dead) jeremy bentham's head ?

i probably was - everyone used to mill around the cabinet at odd hours because an update was posted every ten minutes with a photo, so i'm sure i was there somewhere!

i did! i'm sorry we now have to be bloodsworn enemies, but on the bright side i absolutely delight in retelling the rumour that kcl used bentham's head as a football and now it's too hideous to display to the public. most students when i show them jezza just looked appalled, but i did a campus tour for some 11 year olds once and one student asked me 'aren't you ever worried he's going to follow you home one night?' ?

I saw him at the Met Breuer last year. It was like...WE were panopticonning HIM. poetic justice.

Anyone else had more than a few frantic conversations with telemarketers recently?

Omg same I keep picking up unknown numbers because any call could be *the call*, but the more you pick up the more they call. Ughhhh.

does anyone else have senioritis bad? barely a quarter-way into this last semester and my brain checked out already. thinking about apps/moving/health insurance/medical issues and moving... there's not a lot of space left over and my brain didn't have much room to begin with.

on a happier note, i just had a fantastic vegan donut. probably not what my body needed after the gym but very soothing for the soul if anything.

Y E S. The amount to which I've been phoning it in in my classes is extreme. In one of my classes I literally just peruse GradCafe for the entire hour. The other day I said to my housemate "I don't have any homework!" and she said "Listen. I know for a fact you do have homework. You're just not doing it!"

I graduated last spring, and now I spend time wishing I were back at school, talking theories with my classmates, doing research in the library,  and crashing my professor's office hours to pick their brains.  Haha, the grass is always greener, I guess.

Yes.  It's freaking me out.  Although that's sort of my base mood at this point ?

I've been reading a lot of Sharon Olds lately (and always).  I love her.
