 I'm preparing for my first real life graduate conference! Cripping the Con, which is about pop culture, fandom and disability. Obviously. I am a serious academic person!!!!! The conference includes a roundtable session on mobilizing fandom around disability stuff, wow I am so excited!! (please don't all be social modellists. please)

My presentation is on images of disability Fullmetal Alchemist--it's going to be published in an open source thingy as part of the conference, so I will link it when it's done. The conference is on thursday, I leave tomorrow, and I'm still not done either the presentation or the paper :DDDD

HUMAN DISASTER. 

Still waiting to hear back about my phd app. The rejection letters went out and I didn't get one, so I think I've been waitlisted. But at this point I am...kind of over it? I am just so goddamn exhausted and burnt out that I just don't care. Not to mention I am 100000% done with my department's shitty internal politics rn. So...job hunt tiems? I know I'm going to regret this immensely, but I take solace in the fact that I will regret it either way.

In other news, wedding planning is sort of terrible and it opens up avenues of arguing with my mother that I had never even dreamed of. Wedding colours: apparently deeply contentious!! Being an adult is weird, man.
