Grad student and professional procrastinator
From Toronto, Canada, in the US (gradschool), would like to be in the UK (containing both objects of research and object of affection).
Currently in the third sixth year of a PhD in early modern social history, teaching, applying for money, always behind on reading and sleep. I have a thesis topic now, and I'm so excited that it has already been part of a monkeyfilter in-joke - even a tag-line!.
Would be happy to talk anyone's ear off regarding: history, class, education policy, webcomics, procrastination.
Really should be granted an automatic degree in the latter, with extra kudos for joining Monkey Filter, the monkey god's answer to a grad student's procrastination prayer.
Watch Firefly, it's brilliant. So is Farscape, Battlestar Galactica and the new Doctor Who!
I'm going to copy dng and list some of my posts here.
