i am realizing that i no longer wish to pursue my PhD. i know that is weird to say, when i am only currently working towards my bachelor’s degree–a PhD is worlds away–but for quite a long time now, i have just “known” that i would continue my education until i got my master’s, and […]

queer considerations

something to think about, inspired by my queer film class: heterocentrism.  an example of this is when you go to a movie and leave wishing there had been more gay characters [i do this often]..but then later realizing that maybe only one or two of the characters actually said something about being in a relationship […]
