your future's so unclear now, what's left of your career now?

this post is going to be all over the place because i should be doing ten other things and my mind refuses to stop planning for/thinking about them while i write this.

anyway. i've been becoming more and more serious about dropping out of the PhD program, or at least taking a break from it until they get people that are both eligible to head my committee and interested in what i want to do. apparently my subconscious is not as cool with this decision as i thought it was, because last night i had a grease inspired dream. you know when frenchie drops out of beauty school and that serenading angel guy or whatever sings "beauty school dropout?" yeah, well, he came to me in my dream last night. only he was singing, "computer school drop out/ no graduation day for you/ computer school drop out/ you say there's nothing you can do/ well at least you could have taken time to go and learn to program/ but now you'll just prove them right, your education was a big sham." yeah, it was weird.

the other day i was reading these "did you know" lists about things around your house and it was amazingly amazing and i kept interrupting my husband doing his homework to say, "oh my god! did you know that...? That so cool!" i thought i'd share the amazement. here is part one, part two, and part three.

also, yesterday i read a quote by ellie kemper that said, "write like your parents are already dead." and i thought that was great because i do find myself thinking twice about some things i want to write because i wonder what my parents will think of it or if they'll interpret something the wrong way or think a character is inspired a little too much by them. so yeah, good advice.

and finally, i think this is a genius chair. it's like, bookshelf and seat combined into one but not in one of those super cool but super weird shapes that you couldn't really put in your house. and it can supposedly hold three hundred books which is pretty awesome.
