Coolness!

I just got back a little while ago from visiting my academic advisor. She was very helpful, as opposed to the prior ones I've worked with. We had engaging conversation, and she seemed genuinely interested in my success. So that was cool.

Assuming they take my transfer credit, and they should dangit, then I'm starting as a sophmore, and don't have much left to get an General Ed Associates with an English Emphasis. This seems like a good plan--going for the ass. :D--because then I can transfer to another college and enter as a junior, needing no further general eds.

I'm starting this semester just taking 2 classes. Maybe 3. If I can handle the load, and my son does well in day care, then I'll go full time next semester. Remember that post a while back about needing to pick which English class? Well I need neither of those classes! I fulfilled them already! Ok so now I have 1 English class left for the gen eds...and it's Critical Introduction to Literature (it actually fills the Humanities gen ed req). So I'll probably be taking that one this semester. Plus an online health class, and maybe Ethics & Values.

So yeah, a bunch of reading, a bunch of writing, but I think I might just be able to handle it. And I'm very excited, so that makes a ginormous difference. :) :) :) School is cool!

Hey La, English Lit was my Major. It rocked, and it was so easy to get good marks in provided you wrote feminist analyses of everything you read. I am one of the few people you will meet who got into law school by exploiting feminist theory! I just had to tuck my sac back, and voila, straight A's.

I majored in English, I second Siant'ns theory about feminism! Sylvia Plath was my poet of choice...how can you not love a woman you stuck her head in an oven!! JK I love the erotic and somewhat Homosexual biplay of her and others. Maybe I am a closet Bi?!?

I'm seriously using all you good people for help in my schooling. K we have Sideon, Cynthia, Saint'n, JOOM, Rebecca. All you people have some sort of writing/literature degree... I'm a lucky gal, I tell you.

I'm excited for you, Laura. I have a BA and MA in English Literature. You'll have a great time.

I love Sylvia Plath, too. The poem "Daddy" always reminds me of Mormonism, for some reason.
