The Feminist
avalard
Been months since I made an entry here, and I've been snowed under with work since. That's what happens when you decide to juggle a part-time job, freelance work and decide to study for a Masters degree in film too....

I spend more than half of the week at the university now, surrounded by idiot students and idiot staff. My frustration at undergraduates asking silly questions like "Where's the Law Library", having arrived at the clearly labelled Law Library issue desk, has been replaced by frustration at my professor - a man who has no respect for my work, and my interest in cult film and television.

Sod him. Got a book deal since I last posted here, and a second offer which I put on hold. Starting to feel a bit better about my own ability though I'm currently in a quandrary about my PhD options. I need to move away from the horror which occupies my freelance work, and into other areas. Might look at 1960s British comedy in film and tv....

Was in Bradford last week for a couple of days of the Film Festival.

Incredibly frustrating I missed everyone I wanted to see - Malcolm McDowell (because I was flying back home to Belfast from London at the time - having gone for a job interview), and the god that is Eric Sykes! I couldn't afford to go back over, and then two days after I go home Jeremy Dyson of the League of Gentlemen was there.

Still, gave my paper at the Crash Symposium on The Descent, a much misunderstood and misrepresented horror film. Found it ultra-academic and tried to rewrite the day before giving it. 5000 words in a few hours is no easy task I can tell you. Managed to alienate/piss off most of the men in the audience and got some great feedback from the women in the audience. Chatting afterwards they understood. Guess there might be a little feminist in me after all

Home to repeat of Winter Sportsman (hurray!) a bit of Pertwee era Who, and a pile of work to do.

Still, got the job I went to be interviewed for, so its not all bad

Mood - Bitchy - couldn't you tell

Well, I might be new to the forums, but I'm not new to the list or The Goodies.

At any rate figured I might give this journally thing a go. Gently at first, and then build it up over the months, over the years!!!

Today was not a good day. Been working extra down in the university library, and did nothing but knock over books today. Feeling so tired, its just as well a) there was no-one around to see it happen, and b) that I wasn't handling the antique books at the time.

Actually probably spent more time online today than actually at work. Been trying to negotiate a couple of interviews for my websites. Ah the joys of juggling freelance work with a paid job.

Had more progress than I thought I would. At any rate couldn't stick it and headed off early. Made a beeline for the new Starbucks that's opened round the corner from the library, and sat down to work on a transcription over my large coffee. Three hours later I was back drinking more.

Think that's been the whole day really. Home at last anyway, looking for distraction and direction.

Mood - Somnambulistic - i feel like the walking dead!
Music - James Brown - real funky, keeping me awake, just!
