September is a difficult month. It’s when my MA overlaps with my PhD, and when I’m finishing my dissertation on “traditional” homosexuality in Indonesian fiction, which is not going as well as I initially intended. DGM still seems half-constructed, like an unfinished new home, and I feel a bit sad about that. BUT, the grand submission is next Wednesday, I shall begin my new life as a researcher of interesting things, and more writing will ensue. Until then, Eid Mubarak, everybody!
