I think a small part of me died in the run up to exams.
I haven’t been here to write because I haven’t had time to care to things like my social life, sanity, or blog.
I had planned to write a post on each topic as I revised it, but I quickly found out that not only did I not have the time to do that, but that if I went on a computer I would be lost down a hole of procrastination within minutes.
So, I have been avoiding computers and thus my blog for some time. Well, quite a long time. However, I’m back now, and off uni until September, so I intend to provide a lot of reading material, including those posts on topics studied I had intended earlier:
- Piers Plowman
- Speech Act Theory
- Discourse disorders; specifically schizophrenic discourse
- Classroom discourse
- Discourse markers
- Pidgins and creoles
- Ain’t contraction
- Allan Ginsberg: ‘Howl’
- James Dickey: ‘Falling’
- Edward Albee: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
- Don DeLillo: White Noise
I’m looking forward to writing these posts without any pressure, and to think about the topics in a context away from exams.
