A happy holiday season, to one and to all… Merry Christmas, if you prefer… a few quick musical numbers to go with your present opening and exchanging activities for those that are so inclined…
(Nod to Mary Robinette Kowal)
(Just don’t hear this one very much, and actually heard a version on the radio the other day)… and here’s another version (the third, apparently)
Yesterday, was our third anniversary… Here we are (er, were, during the honeymoon), enjoying the balmy 50’s down in Ushuia, Argentina… It’s been a good three years and I’m looking forward to the many years to come.
The truth is, if you’re an A-list Hollywood star like James Franco, and are willing to put the time into earning a Ph.D, you may actually have more time to read than many of your colleagues.
I saw this post earlier, and thought I would share… when I was going through the screening phase to determine programs to apply to, I saw some rumors circulating that he was planning on attending University of Houston for the same PhD in Creative Writing program I was looking at – and we would (potentially) be starting at the same time: Fall 2012. As good as the program may be, that really would have been the only reason for why I would want to go there… the opportunity to discuss film and writing with someone that’s actually done both, and is somewhere in the same peer group age.
After reading the above article, makes me almost wish I had applied for Houston.
I have completed submitting the last of the applications. At this point, the name of the game is waiting for the Reference letters to be completed and submitted, then waiting for the verdicts to be passed. And one minor essay that popped up as a requirement for a school after the primary application was submitted.
Yeah! Now it’s time for some kind of frosty beverage… details on the application process will be forthcoming.
