Notes on Survival
December 13, 2012 § 1 Comment
After finishing my first semester of grad school, I’m celebrating a few good things:
1.) I’m teaching writing & rhetoric to college freshmen next semester! In preparation I created and submitted a literacy narrative – a story about a moment when composing or reading a text became significant to me – to the Digital Archives of Literacy Narratives. This is a great site with interesting, multimodal compositions, and it’s something I may have my students participate in. My earlier blog post “Twas Brillig and Shook Me to the Core” was a draft. You can listen to the final version here.
2.) I have three poems forthcoming in Columbia Poetry Review. I’m so honored as this issue features some of my favorite poets: Rae Armantrout, David Trinidad, Heather Christle, and Kirsten Kaschock.
I’m not sure I could have made it through, though, without plenty viewing of the following:
1.) We posted this in one of our first blog posts, but it still cracks me up and inspires.
2.) I love this music and this video. It makes me so happy. It will get you through your day.
