@lesbeanlink ANECDOTE ABOUT THAT CLASS I had Gay Feelings for my beautiful genius Jewish American Lit professor and like. This guy who was in that class with me once told her that her research for the day’s lesson was cute and she asked him if he thought her PhD was cute too and like I bumped into him a few months later and apparently she roasted him in his class evaluation for being a misogynist GO SHARON
Two fears: flying animals of any kind (I don’t like not knowing where they will be the next second) and
Three turn-ons: wit, creativity, nerdiness
Four life goals: finish my PhD, be a professor, become a foster parent, hit my goal weight
Five things I like: brussels sprouts, science fiction, purple, taro smoothies, Netflix/Hulu marathons
Six weaknesses: any and all baked goods, some pretty girls make me lose my ability to speak properly and my friends find it hilarious, I will ALWAYS make sure to get my nails done, reading entire books in a single sitting, caffeine, binge-ing and subsequently getting very angry about political news
Seven things I love: traveling, my work, the husband, teaching, my tumblr family, hiking, mango & sticky rice dessert
idk im just perplexed that my professor was like “well i wouldn’t watch pacific rim again because ive seen so many movies like that before” and im like… well… yes, i’m sure you have, because they’re based on the old kaiju movies, that’s what they were going for, so yeah, it’s not exactly a new concept, but… other than that (which i don’t even necessarily think is a bad thing), what a piece of work!
i mean i know a lot of people didn’t like it because it’s very over the top and cheesy at times and that’s not everyone’s style, but like
there’s… so much more!! the characters are so good and the cinematography is so much more than ive come to expect from action movies and it’s just
In class today, Trump was somehow brought up and someone said that Trump was a neo-nazi and my professor was like, “Trump hasn’t ever said he was a neo-nazi” and another kid said, “I was still gay before I started calling myself gay!” and realized what he said and he looked just mortified but it was the greatest response to anything I’ve ever heard
So I’m taking a course on the American Revolution, and a friend and I had the joking idea to make fake posters/covers based on the titles of the academic articles we had to read. :0 Mine was An American Tory by Morton Borden, which explores the complexity of Loyalism in the Revolution. This cover doesn’t really have anything to do with the content, but I did want to draw Alfred looking hesitant and suspicious, with a people of different positions and backgrounds behind him. Something about the title “American Tory” felt very weirdly cinematic and so I decided to make a fake indie/graphic novel type of cover.
Who knows? maybe I’ll make some “fake” comic book pages to go with it as well…..
