oh jeeze

Ugh. I can't sleep. And that's truly a pity, because classes start tomorrow morning. I guess I'm just a little too excited. I keep waking up every three hours or so.
Anyway, I don't have much to write about, because nothing very out of the ordinary's happened since my last post. But I guess I can describe my classes.

1. American Lit. Pre- 1860: I am so excited for this class, because it focuses on exactly what I want to do with my life. I love learning about U.S. History and the culture and I adore literature. So, this is a great combination of what I love. This is a subject that I'd eventually like to teach (I think).
2. Into to Creative Writing: Oh boy, Oh boy. This one's going to be a doozy. While, I love to write research papers and newspaper articles, I'm not so good at creative writing. Creative writing requires maturity. You need to be able to synthesize your feelings and make them beautiful. I don't know if I can do that. Still, I've always planned to write a novel before I die. So, this will help me do that. And supposedly the prof. I'm taking it with is amazing. Like, you can google him and the first three pages are all about him. People even taped him reading his poetry and posted it on youtube. lol. Here's a little clip.

3. Biology- 'nuff said.
4. Women Writers: This one will be interesting. It focuses on the female writer and her views on motherhood and life as a women. Now, when I signed up for the class I thought I'd be learning about Sylvia Plath's life or something. But guess not. Oh well. We'll see. I'm just a little nervous, because we have over ten novels to read in one semester...
5. Latin: Latin's going to be my foreign language. I know that sounds crazy difficult, but it's actually not that bad. Since I've purchased the textbook, I've been finding it rather easy to pick up. And according to rate my professor, the teacher is amazing too. I'm exciteddd.

Alright, I'm going to attempt the impossible, by trying to get back to sleep. Wish me luck:)


  1. I love that you research all your professors, lol. I hope that your first day goes fantastic. I'm sure it will. Even though your female writers course comes with a HEAVY workload I think your will be learn alot and find it interesting.

  2. Wow those classes sound awesome! have fun!

  3. I am about ninety times better at creative writing than I am at research papers. We should share skills. :D
    American lit sounds like it's going to be a be great. :D
    Seriously, you make college sound so great.
