For the record: I got 350 words into my M.A. thesis, about Joan MacDonald, wife of J.E.H. MacDonald, before pointing out that Lawren Harris is a dick.

Wow crazy, I don’t think we defend for the MA level at Carleton. Not like it matters, you’re going to kick ass anyways.

I feel like I picked the hardest MA program in the history of the universe. Not only is it condensed, but no one else has to do thesis defenses for their MAs? How.

You have to defend even though it’s just one year?! ugh.

Yep, and I don’t even know what to expect at this point, so I don’t know I feel like I’m just gonna keel over and die right now tbh but I guess I’ll concoct some kind of plan for success.

I’d like to state here and now that if anything happens to me before I finish my Ultimate J.E.H. MacDonald Project, only someone who knows me very well, or a Tumblr user, will be able to carry on my work, because photographs like this one are labeled things like “donTTOUCHME.png,” and I have scans of letters called “SHUTUP.docx.”
But I am an organized historian I swear like it’s all there it’s just all very aggressively tagged.

“Most women in the modern Western world have no space of our own in the home—no den, basement workshop, garage, outside domain, or special chair in the living room. Though the kitchen and bedroom often are thought of as “her” rooms, they are hers only as spaces in which she is expected to provide services to and for her man. Private space—space in which she can just be, space where she does not have to justify her presence by being engaged in work—is nonexistent unless she actively creates and maintains it.”

"Loving to Survive" Graham (via kingcobracommander)

and its interesting that when watching tv or reading things the “man cave” always gets brought up as a half joke but really more serious thing that every man “needs” but then when women have craft rooms or other similar things related to their own interest it is always the butt of a joke (haha silly wimminz wanting space of their own)

Companion piece: “A Room of One’s Own,” by Virginia Woolf. It’s kind of specific to women writers but it works well.

I needed an adverb to sum up Joan MacDonald’s constant referral to books when it comes to making up her mind about things, and so I said “Hermionian.”
