You know you’re a graduate student when* your first reaction to the cancellation of a three-hour engagement (say, a grad seminar) is “YES! AWESOME! Now I can get to Timothy Mitchell’s book on techno politics and modernity in Egypt that I’ve been wanting to read!”
* With NO apologies to Jeff Foxworthy. Shame on him: rubbing people’s faces in their own stupidity. That’s what graduate seminars are for.
