How dumb would it be to completely change my topic from Chrysostom to something to do with women/gender??  I think I’m freaking out about having the time to work on a topic I know nothing about and Professor Lockhart (as I have named one of my prof’s) likes to ignore the topic of women, even when its pertinent, so I’m all ready to get excited again about gender issues.

Wait.  Really?


So… I already have a few ideas kicking around.  I might write them out, try to outline them, do a bit of preliminary research.  Because, unlike with Chrysostom, I already have a foundational knowledge in this arena.  I just don’t know if this is wise or incredibly unwise.
