flower and birds

A combination of fandom nonsense, pretties, historical notes, and things that I find fascinating. I post sometimes about Homeland, Masters of Sex, Mad Men, Hannibal, and a handful of other shows. I've been in grad school for far too many years.


There are very few things I loathe as much as writing personal statements, but it must be drafted, and it must be drafted this morning. Trying to find ways to make myself sound impressive just end up sounding like Jeff Goldblum is narrating the thing.

"I, uh, I — well, I wrote a couple stories and they’ve been published— well, you know, I guess I’ve done some other things too."

Actual thing I just typed in my outline: BA-PhD, I passed my exams… ?
