here’s the honest truth:
i dont give a single fuck about anything i’m reading in my brazilian historiography seminar. not one. and assigning 600 pages of reading for one week is FUCKING ABSURD. i feel like i will never get to do my own research. when the fuck am i supposed to conduct my own research? when will i write my thesis? i work at the collection that i need to use for four of the eight hours it is open, and the other four hours of my day are spent in class or trying to do the zillions of pages of reading for my coursework. it’s not feasible. i guarantee students in my program in other disciplines do not have the same
insane amount of reading to do.
