Why Am I Going to the New Writers Festival to Present a Paper?



yes, it's post grad humour. isn't it disgusting? so true, though.

the comic itself is kinda funny, though more directed towards that post grad work that might help people or the economy or some such thing, rather than what i do. i haven't yet seen the strip that begins with, "do you think you'll sell your novel?" and someone suspiciously like me scratches his head and replies, in all honesty, "that's not the point."

to be completely honest with people reading, it's entirely likely that most people reading this will think, "what the fuck?" to which i just shrug and say it's one of those you-have-to-be-there kind of things.
