Multiple Enthusiasms

Infinite jest. Excellent fancy. Flashes of merriment.

No longer verdictless

Come August, 16 students will begin to study for their PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Denver, out of some 200 who applied.

I will not be one of them, unfortunately. Got the letter yesterday.

Kind of odd, considering the last post. I don’t really believe in precognitive dreams, but I guess some things, you just kinda know.

On the plus side of things, I hand in my thesis today. So that’s okay.


  1. Their loss–entirely.

    Like I said before, DU’s a good school. But, I think, sometimes, they’re lacking. A friend of mine enrolled in their Masters in Social Work program and hated it so much that she withdrew a couple months in. She described it as being over-run by trust fund babies. I dunno…I sorta find any institution that helped educate Condaleeza Rice a bit suspect.

    I actually met someone online once–this was probably in 2002/3–who was in the PhD in Lit program there. He was some sort of boy genius who was obsessed with academia…a very boring man with a prepubescent voice. He didn’t seem to have any sort of life beyond academics.

    I’m not sure it would have been a good experience for you. I think you’re way bigger than academia, and perhaps, that was evident in your application. In any case, DU’s a tiny pond. You’re meant for way bigger things.

  2. Not to sound cliche but now what are you going to do?

  3. Oh wait April fools right. God I’m dence.
