I've got the urge for going, but I never seem to go
I am in a decidedly Joni Mitchell mood, as of late, though I'm not particularly sure why. As my birthday approaches, I become increasingly anxiously about my Finn Brothers CD...which is rumoured to be coming some time around then.
Two of my classes were cancelled this week so i'm not feeling terrifically academic at the moment, although there are books waiting for me at the library for that conference proposal I am trying to write. I need to get started on my research problem, which is due around the same time as that birthday of mine. Our outline for it has been simply that we should imagine that we are writing a critical preface to the definitive book on this particular problem.
So. If the problem is, how does Canadian literature deal with the concept of national identity?, where should I get started?
Or, more importantly, will I be able to finish after only 12 pages?
Ron Sexsmith tomorrow night, hurrah.
