I presented a paper at my first literary conference yesterday. It was epic, like this.
Yes, that's right. Someday, high school students will read my conference paper and analyze (or attempt to analyze) it for its literary value. At which point, it will be made into an epic movie. My life is so awesome!
Anyway, my paper was on the symbolism of water in medieval literature. And I didn't put anyone in the audience to sleep! None of the six people who were there fell asleep, though many of them had that glazed-over look in their eyes. It was a sight to make any mother proud. I feel like I have succeeded in the Rite of Passage and can now enter Graduatedom. 3 more weeks!
In the meantime, I have plenty to smile at. Mostly these pictures of my feline family:
