That's a damn good list, though Madame Bovary is an abomination that I hope to never encounter again at any point in my life. As I type that I look to the left and see the novel sitting on the desk beside the computer, where it has rested ever since I was forced to read that piece of crap in senior year. So terrible.

When we did our JFE teaching thing we closed off the unit, well nearly closed it off since we had activities and an essay prompt the last day, but the day before that we nearly closed off the unit with Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron." The girl I was teaching with loves that guy's stuff, and this short story was the first thing I read from him and I enjoyed it a pretty good deal. I look forward to checking out more of his writing in the future.

Looks like have you a pretty good semester, roujin.

Two of four grades reporting in.

A in Augustanism and its Rivals, my Brit Lit class, which is cool.
A- in Pedagogy in Secondary Schools, another Education class that is breaking my balls.

I should have just been a straight up English major, I could have graduated with a 4.0. Two more classes to come, I hope to pull an A in one and hopefully an A- in the other. Even with a B+ I'll still be 5/5 Dean's List semesters, but I think/hope I can get an A. Hoping to be in a position where I can graduate some type of cume laude.

Just got out of my last final. The prof. printed the wrong test for us, so he had to scramble and get the real one up on the overhead. We all had the same test form and went through it question by question. I could easily see the paper of the girl in front of me, but I swear I didn't change any of my answers to match her. I'd be shocked if I didn't and A on it.

I have one A. It's in the Greek Heroes in Modern Lit class. Which means my Pan's Labyrinth as an Epic essay was an A. Woo!

The essay will likely be readable on The Reelists in a slightly less formal tone. Let me know if you want to read the scholarly version.
