Still under construction, I suppose.
Not that anyone should expect my progress to happen on a daily basis, but I'm afraid the only step I've taken towards grad school today was to buy a GRE book. It was the Princeton Review book, in case anyone cares. However, I'm fairly certainly no one visits this blog to read about which GRE book I bought.
However, I've been pondering in which direction I should take this blog. I want it to be an account of getting to and maybe even through a grad program in Classics, and that will require some personal experience in order to be of any use to anyone. However, I'm also quite aware that too many personal details are weighty and boring. So I'm asking you all, dear readers, for a little input:
1) Why did you decide to visit this blog?
a. You know me, and I made you click!
b. You saw a link on another website and thought it looked interesting.
c. You saw a link on another website and like clicking on links.
d. A friend (not me) told you about it.
e. Plato told you to.
f. other -- please specify
2) What would you like to see from this blog?
a. Only posts strictly relevant to grad programs in Classics.
b. Postings every other day (or maybe once or twice a week) including only information relevant to grad programs in Classics and "major" developments in my personal studies with Classics.
c. Daily postings (or almost daily) related to my Classical studies, which are usually not as mundane as "I bought a GRE book," but I suppose they can be after a day of work. Maybe I'll take weekends off, because that's when I work.
d. other -- please specify
3) Do you plan on visiting this blog again?
4) Anything else you'd like to suggest.
In other news, perusing a copy of Who Killed Homer? at work today taught me a little about academic in-fighting. Although I find it somewhat disturbing, I've still not been scared away from academia. I'm really not certain if that can be considered a good sign.
