School's In

I'm on my last year at UC Santa Cruz. A part of me is glad to be back. I'm weird, I know, but I actually missed school. But then another part of me is sad, because this is my last year here and I have to start applying for grad school, among other scary ideas like finding a job and what not.

Currently I'm taking three courses:
  • Love and Madness in Medieval Literature
  • Postcolonial Writing
  • Feminist/Queer Theory in Historical Perspectives (Graduate Course)
I'm not a graduate, but I'm in a graduate course (or will be on Monday). One of my professors offered me a slot, which isn't exactly common for undergraduates. I'm somewhat terrified of that course, though. Part of this is because I'm not all that interested in feminist or queer theory and part of it is because it's a grad course, not a standard course. I should be okay, but at the same time I'm afraid I might not be up to it. We'll see what happens.
The other two courses are simply the ones that managed to fit. I'm curious about the Postcolonial Writing, but I'm also thinking I might get bored of it considering I've read enough stuff on colonialism in the last year to stick the stuff to the back of my brain. Love and Madness is likely to be incredibly boring, but so be it. This quarter wasn't a very good one as far as class pickings go.
Here's to hoping for a good quarter. Next quarter is going to rule! I'm taking a class called International Cyberpunk! Yeah!

  1. Exciting & I hear ya on liking school. You'll do great!

  2. Thanks. I'm officially in the Grad class now (got a permission code), so, as the crazy college man from my favorite series of comedy movies once said: It's on like Donkey Kong (and there is a biatch at the end, but I'm not going to say that part)...
