Dissertation Update- Blerging up my Response

by - Monday, May 07, 2012

We just got back from Aunt Ann's, and I already got my response from my adviser about the draft I sent her. A lot of what she said is exactly what I would have said myself, so I guess on some level it is encouraging that I can at least anticipate her criticism. Its too abstract in the beginning and too concrete in the chapters, and she feels like my argument isn't entirely crystallized. Now I am supposed to take a week or two off so I can come back to it with fresh eyes. The unspoken agreement in me doing this is that I will not get it in before summer break, so I will be working on my proposal all summer. So it goes. All in all not a totally happy moment, but it is what it is, and I am going to get a bunch of wedding stuff and cleaning my apartment stuff done. I think I might also read a bunch of art theorists that I just really like with the hope that it will get my head in a positive art history happy place when I come back. We'll see how it goes. Tonight my goal is to start getting back on my diet track.
