First day of “work” went well on Monday. Afterwards, I had to register for classes. Those two hours were spent miserably, and I didn’t get to register until Tuesday. Today, I just received my confirmation letter for my online class, so now I can relax a bit. Considering that I went to bed last night at 7pm and woke up today at 6am… yes, Monday must’ve taken a toll on me more than I originally thought!
Starting next week, I shall have fun with these two subjects:
* ENGL 345: Modern Poetry @ Adelphi Distance Education from Sept 4 to Dec 18.
* ENGL 439Oa: The Beats @ every Sunday from 9am to 4pm, face-to-face, first class on Sept 9 for seven weeks.
This should prove interesting. When I’m not stuffing my face with modern poetry, I will be possessed with Jack Kerouac and whoever else from the Beats era. And when I am not going insane with the Beats, I will be frustrated with T.S. Eliot and the other poets from the modern times. Great. This is one of those times I ask myself why I’m an English major. X_X;; I guess I should be glad I am not taking Shakespeare, especially with distance education! Man, Shakespearean English is a different language on its own.
…Then again so are the Beats and modern poets’ English. *sighs* I just hope the modern poetry class’ workload isn’t a miserable one.
