Comp. lit. gets kind of annoying, sometimes. A lot of things just seem like cases of the emperor's new clothes - "oh, only the REALLY intellectual people have a sense of what postmodernism is", "oh, literary theory is characterized by its resistance to its own definition". Then there are the times when it is just sheer pretentiousness that kicks in - "well, you really have to read Dante in the original Italian", "haha, look at this, I am going to have to translate Nietzsche from German off the cuff". It gets frustrating.

Only two more years to go.
