My advisor emailed me yesterday. He said there was a student progress meeting today and that since he hadn't heard about the extension he supposed that it hadn't come through. That they were being much stricter on those.

I apologised for not having informed him. Said I had trouble with payments here but sorted at the end of last week.

Told him the stuff I've been reading (I think he will like). I told him... I was scared. Since my mid-term-that-wasn't. That I only thought I should go do something else (medicine, biology, what-the-f*ck-ever) because I didn't think I was any good at philosophy or had anything to contribute.

But that I did want a career.

But that I understand I have work owing. And I'll need to get significantly ahead before I will ever get funded work in the profession. And I understand most of my life will be fighting off the NZ governments attempts to have me work full time at MacDonalds.

I feel vulerable and raw. But, well.

He emailed me back that he is glad the extension went through. So that is something. Something significant. At least that means he doesn't just want me to go away and die. That is something indeed.

And I've got this place.

And things have been pretty quiet at home lately. Which has been wonderful for me. Really. Really very.

I'm going to be okay.
