but I’m not. We all sat there for ten minutes and our professor never showed up. This is Literary Criticism.
Some kid was like, “Oh, I’ve taken this class before. He’s usually late” and a few others said, “yeah, me too” and one chimed in, “This is my third time actually. This class is no joke.” I asked who’s all taken the class before and five people immediately around me raised their hands.
So now. I’m going to do my AMH homework like a MOFO since we don’t have Lit Crit today. It sounds like I really need to get AMH out of the way so I can concentrate on my senior-level class.
I think I might add a psycho goal called “Pass Literary Criticism… WITH AN A.” I took a senior class last year as a freshman. I got a B, but I still outdid some of my older counterparts… but then again, that class wasn’t at the point where people we retaking it… It gives me hope, though.
Eesh. Fuck me running. Should have used summer better!! Dammit, dammit, dammit.
I’m halfway through chapter two. 8 months ago
Finally, a little time to write.
We have class every Monday from 3:00-6:00. Our LTC teaches in Rapid City and it is broadcasted into a classroom in our library’s basement. Because I have German from 2:00-2:50, I cannot drive to Rapid to have live lecture. However, on the first Mondays of the semester only classes after 4:00 are in session, so I decided to make the trip to at least have my first class in person. I was an excruciating 10 minutes late.
He broadcasted from Spearfish that day….
So I’m about 75% done with the chapter book we have to do a report on. This book is incredible. It’s called Tip of the Spear: U.S. Army Small-Unit Action in Iraq, 2004-2007 and it has really helped me understand what the hell happened over there and more importantly why. I can’t decisively say, “YES! YES! We should have definitely fought this war!” or “No, let them handle their own shit,” but I think anyone who is confused by the happenings of the Middle East should read this book.
I’ve also started on the first chapter of our coursework. My goal is to do about two chapters a week. That’s roughly 50 pages of reading + questions over the reading.
We also have to watch eight video lectures (about an hour a piece) and visit two museums and write on them.
Ooooh summer, I should have used you better. Shame on me. I feel as though I’ve failed. 8 months ago
