One Week Down...

I just finished up my first week of classes.  Being back on campus has been interesting; stressful at times, exciting at others.  AND, I've had plenty of down-time to actually get homework done!  That's been amazing.  Usually, if I can get away with not doing a reading for classes, I'll just skip it.  This semester, I'm hoping to change that.  The only issue I've had so far, is that even when I read the assignments, it feels like I haven't by the time I get back to class.  Like, Thursday, I was totally embarrassed because I had done the readings, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember anything from book.  So, I feel like now I have to write down everything I read (taking notes and all that) so that I don't look stupid when the professors call on me.

Classes this semester have to be the best I've ever had.  I mean, this is the greatest semester overall.  I'm thrilled. :)  I think my Modernist Literature course is my favorite so far.  We're going to be reading The Picture of Dorian Gray to start off the class; that's going to be great!  Today we sampled a bit of Gertrude Stein, who left the class split in half over their opinions of her.  I like her a lot so far.  I'm going to have to check out more of her writing, although, I will admit that she's a bit bizarre.

Some drama, some complications in my social life, but nothing that I can't handle.  And, even though it kinda sucks right now, things are actually starting to look better.

I start working in the Writing Center in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait :)

Oh, and this evening was interesting.  I was chilling out on the campus, when all of a sudden, someone grabs me from behind and shouts, totally freaking me out.  The best bit?  He was incredibly cute and incredibly embarrassed; we don't know each other, and he thought I was someone else!  My heart is still pounding, haha.  Just wish I could meet him again under better circumstances; that would be so much nicer, haha.

More updates to come.

To all my American readers, have a nice Labor Day weekend :)


  1. Hahaha, funny guy. Sorry he scared you. Also, Gertrude Stein made me and my friends want to swear. We are not fans. But, Post-It notes are your best friends. Mark important passages with them, and you can write a note of something to say! :)

  2. I wish you see him again. Stange circumstances for these kinds of meetings often have more memorable influences;)
    Have a nice weekend:)

  3. happy labor day to you too! a day that we celebrate working by not working. I'm glad you like your classes! I have a heavy reading load too. my one prof makes us right summaries of the readings so we actually have to read the stuff. so annoying. can't wait to see you@
