Today just sucked. The only highlight was having dinner with some friends.
I'll spare ya'll the horrible details of the soggy-shoed, class-missing, lugging-13-books-a-mile-home, mess that was today.
Instead I'll tell you about the classes I'm taking this quarter. One is on the Golden Age of Spain, and is the source of 9 of the aforementioned 13 books. One of which needs to be read by Monday. And it's poetry. Yay. Anyways I find the subject fascinating, and the professor is paralleling the rise of Spain with the rise of America. So far so good.
I'm also taking a course on Race and Power in the US, and the teacher is funny. Yay for perks! Then finally is a course where creative writing faculty talk about their lives as writers and why they do what they do. The professor is the most scatter-brained one I've met so far, so we'll see how this goes.
In the reading world I've started Clockwork Angel. If you all have opinions on it, I'd love to hear them. Besides the Twilight series, I haven't read any paranormal. Well, to be honest it's because of the Twilight series. But that's a topic for another post.
Still looking for book suggestions! I've got a kindle gift card burning a hole in my pocket.
Here's hoping tomorrow is better, too :)
