Happy New Year

As anyone who has ever been enrolled in school for an extended amount of time knows the New Year does not begin January 1st, but sometime in the end of August. Ah yes, it is the beginning of the New year. We've now left the magic of Summer behind and have entered once more into the cold harshness of the real world. School has begun once more, and boy has it ever.

Last Monday marked the beginning of classes for me and we pretty much took off running. This year I have a pretty fun schedule: British Literature 1, Medieval Literature, Super Intense Art Appreciation on Steroids that Married an Aesthetic Philosophy Class on Drugs,  The Chronicles of Narnia (Yes, I get to take this class and you don't >:), and Ethics. Ironically my least favorite class so far is the only one for my major. If English was like all the stuff I'm taking I would do that instead, but, alas, it is not. It is also American literature and Period Courses.

This, of course, is why I'm afraid I shall not be able to contribute much to this during the semester, unless I just have something awesome to share. There is so much reading for all my classes. It's not all painful reading mind you. I can't really complain about having to read all the Narnia books and Arthurian Romances. Still, it takes up a lot of time.

In other news, honors is going well. The semester's just started and we're already doing some fun stuff. Today we're going to the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. They have a Rembrant and Van Dyke exhibit that I've really been wanting to see. We also have a fun game tournament next Tuesday. Also this Saturday marks the American premier of Doctor Who series 7, so there's that as well. It's looking to be a pretty great year. College is getting easier (and by easier I mean it's getting harder, but I'm getting better at it), God is good, and I have nothing to complain about.

Coming up next (because i do have a few posts planned):  Fractal Art a.k.a. if they taught math like this I might still remember the multiplication tables.
