Take THAT, homework!!

Me: HA. I win. You can't get me, homework! 
Homework: Just wait for next semester when I will KILL YOU.
Me: EEP! *cowers*

This weekend I did more than two hundred pages of reading for my Beowulf presentation, wrote a five page paper from start to finish in less than four hours, translated over a hundred lines of Anglo-Saxon, and probably about fifty lines of Latin. I win. For now anyway.

I have also discovered that I do believe I would not mind researching/reading works about and writing papers on Beowulf for the rest of my life. Future job option? Perhaps, if I can do it without teaching...and it would mean I also have to figure out grad school...

Speaking of futures and such, this is my schedule next semester.

10:30-11:20 Chaucer
11:30-12:20 Latin Epistolography
Old Norse
2-4:50 Carolingian History
5-6 Chorale (if I take it)

7-9 World Music Ensemble (?)

10:30-11:20 Chaucer

11:30-12:20 Latin Epistolography
2-4 English Senior Seminar (Arthurian Lit.)
5-6 Chorale (?)


10:30-11:20 Chaucer

11:30-12:20 Latin Epistolography

And in addition to that, I will have at least two days where I work (probably Tues, Thurs and/or Friday) and hopefully a voice lesson.
I may be insane. That's three three hundreds and a four hundred, plus an independent study. Three languages (Latin, Old Norse and Middle English (though I don't imagine ME will be that terrible)), and three reading/writing heavy courses. Gosh, that's a lot...

Further news
The Good: I got a single in Wellness.
The Bad news: It's Young, not Larcom.


BUT some other good news, I'll be on the same floor as my friend Emily, who will be taking three out of the five classes I'm taking next semester, so we can complain, gripe, work and celebrate together.

Random news
Well, I never thought I'd do it, but I've been listening to Sarah Brightman all day... I'm not entirely sure why, but hey, I'm enjoying it...mostly! I don't always like what she does with her voice, but there's no denying she is a good singer. And sometimes there's just that song that makes you go... "OH. WOW. So THAT'S why I'm listening to her!" (Her diction is really strange there, though...) She is just a little too... theatrical/over the top in most of her concerts, buuuuut if you're just listening, it's not that bad.

I DID get to draw this weekend in spite of the MASSIVE amounts of studiousness, so that was nice!

Ok. Must return to reading, translating, and otherwise preparing for upcoming classes.


  1. I like the classes you taking next semester! It seems exciting! Hehehe, did I unintentionally get you started listening to Sarah Brightman with that "Nella Fantasia" link? I don't like her voice all that much either, but it was the only link I could find with a woman singing the song that hadn't been blocked for copyright etc. XD

    And look at Tizzy!

  2. @the1pen Haha. Yup, yup you did. It's all your fault.

    And I'm VERY excited for next semester.
