Okay - so I'm a slacker.
I'll wait until ya'all stop gasping. I'm sure the realization of my slack-a-tude is something that is both unexpected and unimaginable, however, I can assure you that it is completely true.
So I'm not really sure how I convinced myself to go to Graduate School. I gathered papers, applied, e-mailed, begged and pleaded until they let me in. I even took the damn GRE with its confusing questions that may or may not be trick questions and math problems that would've made Einstien break into cold sweats. Now - with three classes left to go in my American Lit class I'm told "Hey - you Grad Students have to give a short presentation about your topic for the class next Monday."
Only - I've yet to pick a topic.
The small, tiny-handed professor decided that I was to write a paper proposal about Stephen Crane's novella "Maggie" and how it pertains to feminism literary criticism. I didn't want to do that - I'm not exactly even sure what theories one would apply when approaching a work like "Maggie" with a feminist slant.
So - here's my call for help.
If ya'all have any ideas for me - short of running over my Professor with my car - too traceable - then please let me know!
