last week i met up with an academic (sara wills, australia centre) whose academic approach was so similar to mine (or perhaps overlapping) that she invited me to a reading group she is in. i was so terribly chuffed at the time, and today i just got an email with suggestions for readings the group might like to undertake.
oh my goddess this is like the most exciting thing for a nerd like me. so, anyway, yes, 10 minutes ago i was feeling all grounded and stuff, but this is like totally exciting!
i think i might work on my "nerd" t-shirt idea tonight as a celebration. :>
