Since Lucyrain is pretending...
let's also pretend that I didn't just get kicked out of my doctoral program today.
And let's pretend I am not absolutely devastated.
And let's pretend too that this isn't going to make my mother feel overjoyed (because it will, and unfortunately, I will be spending next week with her).
The funny thing is that now I feel like I can "come out" to all of you about my identity and details about myself.
