Actually I have to hold off on reading the articles because I'm already in an animalistic frenzy over them, and I need to finish Repression first or I never will. This'll just have to be my incentive.
I think I'm about to confirm what I've already been told by my friends, that New College has vastly over-prepared me for graduate study. I even had one of my fellow incoming grads say something like, "I wish I had taken LSD and written a thesis!" I hope she manages it in grad school, because it's exactly as fun as it sounds.
Also I'm in with nothing but yankees and northerners--these folks tried to tell me that Chicago doesn't really have a fall. Nice try: if the leaves change color, you have a fall. Palms trees only change when a hurricane strips them bare or they die.
