untitled #208

i finally got some academic feedback that doesn't make me want to kill myself. i wasn't exactly comfortable with everything that was said, and i started to nervously pick at my scalp while listening to the professor in question, but i haven't thought of jumping off a roof or anything. so, hey, pretty good, right?

and yet, i still find things mostly unsatisfying. go fig.

It helps if you get the feedback within a year or two of writing the document in question.

Besides, you got positive feedback before. Indeed, just so your readers know, you were counseled by two different members of the hallowed Wisconsin faculty to send your MA to a journal immediately after its successful defense.

and yet only one of the faculty members delivered this advice in a believable way. the other had a "what the hell, maybe some shitty journal will publish this. who knows?" look on his face when he said i should try to get it published. in fact, this particular professor still acts as though the whole theoretical basis of my master's thesis (the document in question) is completely, unredeemably ridiculous.

so, yeah, pretty positive.

sorry, J. i shouldn't have posted that. but, i can't seem to delete it. anyway, just so everyone knows, jeremy has been very helpful to me during my time here at madison. i probably would have poked my eyes out with sticks if he weren't around.
