ASKED ME TO ASSIST HIM WITH A BOOK HE IS WRITING.
Future doctoral dream come true.
He also said that after this project, he'd be willing to write one of my doctoral recommendation letters.
WHICH IS A HUGE DEAL.
And he flattered me with all sorts of scholarly compliments, about my observant remarks in class, and how I exhaustively and intricately analyze the poems we read, and how I was the first person he wanted to offer the position to.
I haven't officially accepted yet.
I'm still weighing my options.
