This afternoon at 1 I take my MA comprehensive exams, which means there has been a lot of studying lately. I have been reviewing all the books I’ve read over the past two years and tracing connections across genres and centuries so that I am ready to sit there and write all afternoon and into the evening. Preparation has been, in fact, surprisingly simple, as French books share a remarkably similar plot line. Since I am sure you are all dying to have the truth of all French literature revealed to you this morning, I give you the following flowchart, created by Kristen in her notes during class. Any French literature fans out there? What are your favorites and how do they match up with this chart?

Lately, on InstagramWe are on day 1 of a million day rain forecast so I’m going to get this image from yesterday tattooed on the inside of my eyelids and just stumble about blindly ignoring the destruction that is Henry Indoors For Longer Than An Hour.Blew off naps, dumped an entire bag of goldfish all over the backseat, ignored implementation of good sleep habits for the baby, and endured a whole lot of car whining- all so we could pick berries in the sun. I have no regrets.
