Today was the first day of the new semester. This is my fifth semester of College, meaning that I am in my. . . Third year! My, how time flies. So after last semester, where I took College English and Elementary Spanish (and worked a lot), this semester is a little different. This semester, I signed up for five classes, four of which are English classes. If it’s not obvious, I am an English Major as of the end of last semester (before that I was a Theatre Major). My class list consists of the following classes:
Spanish 2: I’m so nervous about this class; I forgot so much of the Spanish that I learned last semester. This is definitely going to be a challenge, but I know I can overcome it. This is going to be the heaviest class that I’ll be carrying.
Critical Thinking (Critical Analysis of Literature): This class is definitely the big gun of my English classes. We have six essays, and on the first day of class, I’ve already done forty pages of reading. This seems like it’s going to be a super-fun class though, and I can’t wait to meet whatever challenges it presents me with. The best part is that my professor is hot in a Sarah Connor (from Sarah Connor Chronicles) sort of way.
Creative Writing: Sadly, I’m not actually in this class yet, I’m on the wait list. However, I am first on the wait list. Unfortunately, none of the petitioners got into either of my other two classes, so I don’t have much hope for this one, which is too bad because I already bought the books. . . What with the Novel I’m writing and this blog, I really want to get into this class. Looks like I’m going to be lingering for the first few days until someone drops.
British Literature After 1800: I am SO EXCITED for this class! The reading is kind of a lot–I have five books for this class (which isn’t so bad on it’s own, but coupled with three other English classes, it’s a pretty heavy course load). To explain why I am excited, here are a few titles that we will be reading this semester: Frankenstein, Jane Eyre, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and several others. I can’t wait to start this class tomorrow!: I’m not really sure what to expect from this class, however the books. The best part is, it’s the same professor as Critical Thinking.
Literature During the Renaissance: I honestly don’t know what to expect from this. The books look interesting, and I have six of ’em. I literally have a box filled with books for this semester under my bed.
