Hey folks, just wanted to check in and let everyone (all 4 or 5 of you) know that I haven’t died, or worse, given up the Internet because I got religion in a really big, really Luddite way. I have, in fact, been writing my senior thesis here at the good old University of Alabama, and applying to graduate programs, and generally stressing out about both. BUT! I have good news:
1. Good news for me: I’m going to grad school. Can’t say where yet, but it’s happened, and soon I’ll be saying things like “why, that calls for a mention of reductio ad absurdum…” or “it’s Dr. Morales to you.” In any case, nobody cares.
2. Good news for the blog: I haven’t stopped reading or reviewing, and while grad school might put me out of commission again, I have a few months of grace period between now and then, so I may have some more regular updates.
In any case, I have been writing more conventional (ie. not indie) reviews for the campus paper. I’m including the link to my byline and such right here: http://cw.ua.edu/author/isabela-morales/
I’ll be re-posting those as well, and they include such titles as:
The Marriage Plot, by Jeffrey Eugenides (they made me write it for Valentine’s Day)
Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel (I made them let me do Thomas Cromwell)
The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins (read it before the movie comes out, you hipsters, or you never will out of pride, I know it!)
Oh, and also look for more television reviews coming up. I watch so much tv, you see, so so much.
