I've been playing a lot of Elder Scrolls Online. It's so good. It's not perfect but it's way better than WoW or Granado Espada (or whatever they're calling it these days).

I'm also getting ready to present at an academic conference at my school this Saturday, which will be fun. Last semester I wrote a paper about Street and Protest Medics, and then my folklore professor suggested I go to the Missouri Historical Society and present it. I did and it was received really well. This semester she suggested I apply to present at this literature conference being held at Missouri State, since folklore is under the purview of the English department. I'm updating the presentation a little bit because things have changed since the election and with all the street fighting going on in cities and college campuses. It's interesting. Nobody else is really doing this research, so if I can somehow figure out a way to get into grad school, this is what I want to work on. Not just because I'm a participant observer, but because this folk group goes back decades and across demographics. I want to do justice to the work of the civil rights era folks and those that did medic work during the labor unrest in the early part of the 20th century.

School is winding down for the semester, so I'm just coasting on auto-pilot until then. It'll be nice to have 3 months off until fall semester starts. Hopefully I'll be able to find some work so I'm not a burden on the Mister and his kids. I'm going to try for Walmart, because it's cheap and the discount will be a nice when it's time for groceries and school shopping. I'm deliberately avoiding an anti-capitalist critique of this. I need work to survive, it's that simple.

I should be asleep, because I have class tomorrow, but attendance is optional so LOOOOLOLOLOOLOL.
