newfavething asked: Okay babes, how about this - 'the good old Cambridge hours of breakfast at eight and dinner at five, by which you may get two days' work out of one' - how does that work, exactly?? By freeing up plenty of time for after-dinner work?

lolz, dude, you ask this as if my ””work schedule”” even comes close to following this kind of structure. I barely even eat in college, let alone eat set meals at set hours. Like, I was once sitting in the University Library looking Very Serious (high-backed chair, hard-work hair screwed into high-up bun, you know the drill) and a friend (who was, at that point, newly-acquired) came up behind me to find me browsing the hall menu for that evening - a meal which I wasn’t even booked in for. Much later that night, I wrote 4,000 (good) words in about three hours, crouched over my laptop in a very public stairwell (my supervisor saw me and gave me a cookie). My productivity comes in fits and starts; when it’s good, it’s very good, and when I’m/it’s bad, it’s laughable.

More picture books in my life, pls. Reading The Water Babies as (somewhat tenuous) research for my diss. last year was fab.

*realizes that in nodding in agreement to a text upheld by the academy and your peers as an informative text you’ve internalized a power relation from a specific assemblage of knowledge and ideas, so while you didn’t understand foucault the first time you understood power and its effect on the body intuitively*
