I was telling A. yesterday that I sound really smart on my blog. She asked what I was posting about. So I told her that I was quoting from Wikipedia about Barthes and "writerly" texts and so on.
She said, "You're not smart if you quote from Wikipedia." And she laughed at me.
And you may wonder why I am often depressed.
Just kidding (still waiting for news from prospective post-secondary institutions, though).
