- Evelyn Waugh, speaking of stories written by Flannery O'Connor
And so ends my first week of grad school. I have a little better understanding of what my work load will be, and I think I can handle it. Of course I'm only taking three credits this semester. The plan is to take six per semester starting next spring.
And there are the imponderables. Will my professors hate me because I'm a conservative? Will my fellow students hate me for the same reason? Would I do better to sound off on my opinions, or try to keep my head down? Will I live long enough to finish this thing?
Ah well. If you want to give me moral support, and are in the area, I'll be with the Vikings at the Nordic Music Festival in Chanhassen, MN tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be hot.
