As most of you know, I went back to school this last semester. It really had me worried because it’s been almost 20 years since I was in school and my functionality is low because of the depression. But I checked my grades this week and lo and behold! I got a B in Tech Comm and an A in Nonfiction writing! Hooray! A naggy, niggling little part of my brain is whiny about the B, but considering the struggles I had with that class, I’m happy with it. Perhaps someday I’ll post the essays that earned me the A in Nonfiction Writing. But not today. Today I am taking a break and trying to get excited about next semester — Intro to Literary Studies and Intro to Linguistic Studies. Whee! After next semester the real fun begins — it’ll be all writing and reading classes for my remaining three semesters. Part of me is a little worried about them because it’s rather obvious that OU’s English department wasn’t well developed when I was there. But I had SO much fun with my nonfiction writing class this last semester that I’m hoping it won’t be a problem.
Now go and have a happy new year!
