A Little Bit of Column A, a Little Bit of Column B

I'm sorry that I haven't been posting as regularly as I was at the beginning of the year - grad school is slowly but surely going to kill me. Today is a prime example. On one hand, I got a great deal of stuff done (for school and other things). I went to Staples to get supplies, got some pants hemmed, printed out articles at the computer lab, and returned library books before I lost track of them and/ or started accruing the exorbitant fines (fifty cents a day) on them.

On the other hand, I have the deep and sinking suspicion that one of the dissertations in my TBR pile is very similar to what I was planning to do for my research and dissertation. While this may not completely nix my dissertation (and the year and a half of research and reading I have been doing in preparation for it), I am more than a little freaked out and just want to curl up in the fetal position.
