Existentialist crisis

I have been heavily resisting the direction that the Powers That Be want me to go with my Honours thesis.  I'm not really happy about writing 15000 words on why Buffy and Veronica fail as feminist icons.  I'm totally re-thinking the whole me as an Honours student, cutting and running, and just doing the whole graduation bit with a BA (no Hons) and putting academe behind me.  However, before I do that I may speak to some CCS (communication and cultural studies) lecturers (which has now apparently mutated to MACS, Media And Cultural Studies).  I did a double major - CCS/MACS may be the direction I need to go in to get the result that I want.  Plus I've just looked at the selection of English Honours subjects for next year - OH MY GOD!  - Modernism's Others (WTF), Turning Points: An Introduction to Post-Colonial Literary History (sigh - we do however get to both read and watch The Last of the Mohicans for that subject), US Literature: Modernity and Post-Modernity (which I've already withdrawn from once) and Contemporary Life Writing (this sounds mildly interesting).  I have to do 3 out of the 4 offered.  Meatloaf reckoned two out of three ain't bad, I'm thinking 3 out of 4 is very, very bad.

I'm not saying anything about the cricket because that may be considered gloating, and who knows, a miracle may happen tomorrow.
