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 :)
