Who knew the transition from undergrad to grad would be such a pain?! It took two weeks to get enrolled in my summer classes, but as of today it’s finally finished! Enrollment: check. Books: check. Monies: check (on Monday anyway).
I’m excited but a little nervous to be taking my first grad classes, especially since they’re intense 3-week classes. This might have been a dumb idea.
Jane Austen in my first class. It starts on the 21st. I’ll be reading Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Emma. In addition, I’ll have my first grad paper to write–15-18 pages. It’s a little daunting, but I know I’ll be fine.
Sherlock Holmes will start right after Jane Austen finishes (July 12th). I don’t know exactly what stories we’ll be reading, but I had to purchase the complete series so I’m hoping we aren’t required to read the entire 1,200 page book in 3 weeks. =)
My summer will certainly fly by now!
I’m getting further in Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell. I’m hoping I can finish it before class starts. I’m on page 616 of 846. I love it! I’ll try to write somewhat of a review once I finish.
One last thing: my leech bite. It’s been 10 days and it’s getting worse. It’s ridiculously red, itches like crazy, and is swollen to about the size of a quarter. I don’t know much about leech bites, but I’m thinking something isn’t quite right, especially on-line sources said they heal in a week. I’ll be headed to the health center Monday at 9, so we’ll see how that goes.
