Finally done with fall quarter

December 10, 2007

This fall has been one of the busiest ever for me with school. I’m now done with the last full quarter of my undergraduate career; this winter I finish up with a couple last requirements, including my senior thesis, and then I am finished and set to walk in the Spring. In the last several days, I turned in 33 pages of work:

  • a 10 page paper on John Hunter, the Scottish surgeon who infected himself with syphilis and gonorrhea in the late 1700s in an effort to understand the “morbid poison” venereal disease that at the time was plaguing London
  • an 8 page paper on Hemingway’s short story Soldier’s Home, which is a timeless piece about a Marine who comes home from World War I to a family that can’t listen to the things he wants to say about being a soldier, so he begins to lie and still doesn’t find anyone who cares.
  • a 5 page paper about queer sexuality, and bisexuality in particular
  • a 5 page paper on Badiou’s belief in philosophy’s role in politics and the war on terror
  • a 5 page paper that attempts a Zizekian analysis of Fight Club

All of these papers are available for purchase at the low price of $99.99. Just kidding!

It feels very good to be done. I’ll get back to my glass of wine, now, thank you.
