We’re playing this at our concert next month - I’m on the continuo bass. *happy sigh* (Though I have to say we are being a good deal more muscular about it. My gamba sounds heroic as fuck in its lower registers.)

Anonymous asked: Could you talk a little about mental health and your grad school experience, actually? I know you're not doing a PhD yet but I'm thinking about applying for a masters and I'm worried I can't get my shit together and I don't know you seem to be on it how do??

Wow okay I am flattered that you’re asking but I am one of the least qualified people to ask about this. I’ll put my personal experience under the cut:

Jack’s post on this is incredibly interesting (and honest, and brave), and made me think that I might take a crack at the topic myself. I’ve been thinking a lot about my cohort-mates recently and our development as individuals and as a group since we all started in September, and though I’m not sure I have any substantial advice about how to manage I can at least offer things I think I’ve learned from my experience. (To the original anon: I’m a first-year humanities PhD student, in an Ivy-League American university.)

So to start off, I should say that I’m similar to Jack in maintaining that I am not talking about my ‘mental health’ here as something that has anything diagnosed and/or treated about it. I’ve never seen a psychiatrist in my life, nor do I believe I have any conditions serious enough to be be deserving of medical attention. That being said, like anyone, keeping a healthy mental balance is something that goes far beyond the DSM psychiatric manual, and everyone I know has experienced their ups and downs this year.

A little something for commonplacecaz.

For more on the Comte de la Fère, consult this narrative on one of the rare accounts of that noble peer in Paris.

And be sure to badger our mysterious writer for more.  For who knows?  Though sightings have been rare of late, our correspondents are everywhere, and may yet find some new kernels of truth among the ever more fabulous myths of the enigmatic Comte.

M’colleague is so talented! (Isn’t she, though? Isn’t it. Yes, isn’t it.)

Thou shalt have a new kink meme fill by the end of this very evening, my lady…
