OMG! So today at the Annual Art and Art History End of the Year BBQ, I was saying hi to Prof. Pappas, and she asked me if I wanted to be Peer Educator for Proseminar next year?! She said that when I took it last spring, I was one of the best in the class and had a solid understanding of the concepts and I would have a lot to offer the class! I said I’d definitely be interested and she said she’s get in touch in the fall and we will discuss it further!
I’m here at work…unfortunately not a very productive overnight shift. Still have a little over an hour of work to maybe get something done. But hey, that’s life. Been watching it get lighter outside since like 5am…crazy, right?! So different from winter. I know, I know..obvious, but still it’s kinda cool. (fyi this is just a random 6:30am rant post…continue at own risk haha)

Oh, us modern women. Forever chasing the elusive “all of it,” hoping to “have” “it” while still also “having” the rest of “it.” Look at me, “eating” my “cake”! And that “other” “cake” too! (Sidenote: I want cake.) The latest exploration of whether of not women can “have it all” (meaning, in case you’re not familiar with feminism’s most boring cliche, both a satisfying family life and a successful career) is Anne-Marie Slaughter’s much-discussed Atlantic piece titled, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.” (She’s in the “no” camp, duh.) Which I suppose I agree with, seeing as “it all” is a completely made-up, baseless magical construct that doesn’t mean anything. And no, we certainly can’t “have” things that don’t exist. (If I’m wrong about that, then my other car is a centaur where the front half is Ryan Gosling and the back half is the horse version of Ryan Gosling. BRB, tacking that on my vision board.)
This is why I love feminism
