A Dreary Week of Nothingness

A bout of IBS (yes finally I know what's been causing this periodic 'ill' feeling) several trips to the doctors, new medication and extreme discomfort and tiredness have made this week pretty unproductive. I had plans big plans but lethargy and headaches and abdominal pain had other ideas.
I've manage a bit of reading and I am seeing the supervisor tomorrow, after having to postpone Monday! I am going to see if I can come up with a plan for a 20,000 word 'mini' thesis. Focusing on Blast's gendering! It's complex gender identity, the obliteration of Eve, a concept of androgyny that disregards all things feminine, including women, to create a wholly male society is worthy of exploring.
Also the strange anomaly in the way in which RW's work ended up being included and was in fact the only inclusion of women's writing or art also raises questions. It was the only literary piece that satisfied WL.
The Vorticist aesthetic is a complex one, as it was short lived and faded fast into obscurity as the real life violence and blasting of the first War took precedence in the social psyche.

Now if can only come up with something more concrete for tomorrow's meeting I think I may have the next three months sorted. I'll suggest a deadline of January and ask if I can submit a portion of it to her before Christmas for her to just look over and see if it's going in the right direction.

One thing that could help kick start this day of planning would be - if I got dressed!
