OK, I think I've got it figured out. Here it is: My rewrite. Everything presented herein is simply my own interpretive work and you're all free to think of it what you will, but despite the somewhat elevated language, I did just do this for fun, so while I welcome discussion and commentary, keep it fun!

My fiance in response to my sharing this with him:
"So art... is necromancy."

"...[O]ne of the tasks of art is to overthrow the tyranny of time and to recreate a universe within which the dead converse at ease with the living." - Jonathan Miller
WOW. What an absolute tour de force of a statement. Truthful, prosaically gorgeous, concise; probably one of the best sentences I've read about theater and art in my career.

Me: I don't have the drive to be a professional academic
Also Me: *is already writing up a rough bibliography for a paper not even a full week out of undergrad*

I think I've got a new research project...

One can easily imagine a mixed effect happening here. On one hand, enclosure likely helped to kill off the wandering theater troupe, ending an entire tradition of performance; on the other, enclosure contributed to urbanization, which, for whatever else one can say on it, undoubtedly did wonders for centralized, urban theater-makers regarding audience turn out and by extension, their income. This would've made theater a more legitimate profession; which at this time in history, it was becoming

Hmm... thinking on it, I can't help but notice a coincidence: the rise of professional drama in England immediately preceded the beginning of the Enclosure Acts; I'm curious how the enclosing of the commons affected English (and by extension early Anglo-American) theater...

This is it, Scholar.
Today's my graduation day from undergrad.
It's been a long, beautiful time coming, and now it's time to move on to the next big thing in life - living it on my terms.

Well folks, we're there.
My undergraduate capstone paper is finished.
Pros: I have a lot more time on my hands and I'm all but cleared to get my degree now
Cons: I am now undeniably in the last days of my undergraduate career and that is Terrifying for many reasons.

Been a long time, Scholar! Been busy with keeping things together my final semester of undergrad, but now I really need some advice from folks with more experience
As part of my department portfolios (and future plans) I need to write up my CV, which I've never done. I've consulted online resources and they seem contradictory.
Can anyone offer any guidance on how to write and structure a CV for someone who is just finishing undergrad?

My first bread loaves! Felt it was only appropriate that I started baking my own considering Conquest of Bread is one of my favorite books.

150 million workers and workers in India are taking part in a two-day general strike, which is probably the biggest general strike in history.

Being in a bookstore
Pros: surrounded by books!
Cons: must prioritize which books to buy based on price, current reading list, proximity to next gift-giving holiday...

Something really wonderful is singing together as a community. Just like... for fun! I know a lot of people associate that with Summer Camp but like idk it's super fun and it costs nothing. We do it a lot in Jewish spaces and I also encountered it in Unitarian spaces and I just think it's super lovely.

Another free thing you can do is dancing. As individuals and as social dances like Square, Contra, and Salsa.

Also, for non-social activities, I highly recommend going for walks on a nice sunny day :3
