I Enjoy Scholarly Pursuits

I’ve missed y’all tons!  I’ve tried to read here and there, and I will catch up eventually.

I can’t begin to tell you how much better this semester is treating me already.  Even though my days on campus are (very) long, there’s a sizable break between classes and there’s always someone to shoot the bull with.  Or time to get reading done if I want.  The first two texts in my lit classes are The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye.  How lucky can you get, right?  The rest of the reading looks really promising, and the only downside to the classes themselves is one obnoxious bastard who’s in both.  Luckily, one of the profs takes him to task rather than letting him monopolize class time with his own theories.  It’s wonderful to look forward to class again, to have meaningful discussions, and feel like I’m learning something that’s going to be useful.

I think the fact that things are going well with The Nerd helps a lot, too.  We’ve still stuck to the limited-time-together plan.  That doesn’t mean that we only see each other once a week, but it’s not every night or even every other night, usually.  We’re planning to start taking dance classes in a couple of weeks, and I’m very excited about it!  Exercise and boogie-in’?  Yes, please!  My mother has even been pretty cool about watching the boys one night a week so we can go out. 

So, things are good, going on an even keel, and that, my dears, is a great thing.

    I am so happy that you are enjoying your classes, and so happy your prof has the balls to reel that asshat in!

    And yay for the Nerd, and yay for Mom being cool! That makes my day.

    SB – I can’t believe I hadn’t ever read it before. I do love it!

    ETW – Despite the last few days, it really has been.

    Amy – Thank you!

    Dish – It. Was. Friggen. Awesome!

    Dad – I honestly want to do them all, but I’ve wanted to learn swing dance forever, so we’re going to try to start with that. Plus, hell-Oooo, I want some sassy dresses to wear!

    Ron – It feels that way, but I’m still afraid to trust that completely. I know you know the feeling, my friend.

    Mindy – Hahaha, I guess I was that day!

    Glad you are enjoying school. Both of those books are two I’ve always meant to read!

    Aw, I haven’t been to visit in forever! I hope you have been well. It sounds like you have some good things going for you though. I have missed you and I can’t believe how quickly time has been flying by!
