Translation into more mundane terms: I am a graduate student finishing up a PhD in English. This is a peculiar place, caught between still being a student, but also a teacher, and a young professional academic/scholar. Beyond these categories I am a reader and writer. I am writing my dissertation, teaching classes, and enjoying my time in Philadelphia. I have quite the flexible schedule but always busy doing something. Jazz after 5 at the art museum anyone?
Visually, I have a purple sweater with a huge pocket that I love to wear.
I accessorize with glasses, books, and the dumb smile I can't seem to fix.
Sorry, but what do you expect from a lit phd? I read lots of 19th and 20th century novelists, poets, and philosophers, etc. Also things such as the newspaper, the New Yorker, and the like. Oh yes, and Nietzsche, he's peachy.
My three favorite movies are Annie Hall, Dr. Strangelove, and The Graduate. Others that immediately spring to mind are Swingers, Harold and Maude, Ghostbusters, and Indiana Jones. Not to brag - but I shall brag nonetheless - I've seen all AFI Top 100 movies! This was an important life-event that got me going on the path I am on now.
Currently I've been listening to Patti Smith (she's stuck in my head), that Walk on the Moon song, and Van Morrison. The top played songs on my itunes are She Drives Me Crazy by the Fine Young Cannibals and Jimmy Eat World's The Middle. My go to playlist is the Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Al Green, Smokey Robinson relaxation session, if not classical music. Stevie Nicks is playing in the background right now ... Stand Back ... quite for this site ominous no?
For food... everything. Italian, French, Thai, and Indonesian are top choices. I've yet to find authentic Indonesian food anywhere other than Holland. Ralph's is my favorite restaurant in Philly. I would love to date a knowledgable epicure to teach me about these things.
I don't watch much TV anymore but just started Mad Men. Or maybe shows refer to theater?
And why isn't art a category? Courbet & Caravaggio & Bronzino are my favorite painters. I would like to my Florence my home.
Coffee (and coffee flavored things; esp milkshakes)
More important, I still listen to it. The song "Affirmation" is underrated. "The Animal Song" can't be rated highly enough.
