Random thought...

I commented to a friend recently that I was excited to be done with school so I could really read. That is, I could read what I want. I didn't specify that last part, and just now realized that I have read a TON of books this past semester. I read: Sense and Sensibility, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula, Ziska, Carmilla, Hard Times, To the Lighthouse, Brick Lane, A Lesson Before Dying, Life Is So Good, a Collection of Ghost Stories, and a collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories... I think I may be missing one or two...WOW. That is 10 novels and 2 collections of short stories. And that is not including Poetry... I read everything from Wordsworth to Heaney...(just British ones...)Oh, and all the Philosophical essays... Hume and Plantinga, and oh so many others, and then there is the Anglo-Saxon poetry and prose that I translated, everything from about 300-1000AD. But to be honest, that is really not that much, because the entirety of England was completely illiterate between 400-600...? I think. Better brush up on that. Anyway, I have accomplished a lot this semester, and I cannot believe that it is almost over, and that I made it through!!!!
Take that 18 credits!

  1. Isn't it amazing how you can step back and look back and really see how much you accomplished? No wonder you were stressed out! But, you've made it! Bravo! XX
