* In preparation for registration for next semester's classes, I was trawling through both the major requirements for MEMS, Classics, and English, and Degree Audit, which led me to the kind of startling conclusion that a class I took freshman year actually counts for MEMS (Introduction to British Literature I). This should probably not surprise me as much as it does, but for some reason I'd assumed it didn't count. Counting that, and the classes I'm taking this semester, I'll be fifteen credits into a 30 credit program. Not bad.
I'm tentatively considering triple majoring again, the other two majors being Classical Studies and English literature, because I like
English; it doesn't make me squee the way Classics or MEMS classes do, but it's nice and comfortable and I enjoy doing it, not to mention I'm good at it. It turns out I also have the exact same number of credits in both, currently -- twelve -- and I like English enough that I'm not going to have much of a problem taking classes in the department the next couple of years. Especially because next semester they're offering Children's Literature, which, omg YES, I don't even care that it conflicts with the seminar I wanted to take. Also, Shakespeare I; I like the professor, and I like Shakespeare well enough, and that'll count for MEMS too, I think. Classics is kind of a given. *shrugs* I think I'm leaning towards concentrating more heavily on Rome next semester; usually I'm more of a Greece person, but this semester I am Very Intrigued by Rome.
I do keep forgetting that I need to take Latin 101, though. Which messes up my presumptive schedule every time.
* Went to Macy's with friends yesterday because Chicago needed to buy a floor-length dress for Dining In with her AFROTC gentleman friend. Because this translates to four girls during prom season, there was a lot of trying on dresses. Which is FUN. Except -- I realize that I have gone down a dress size (at least) from the last time I tried on dresses (senior year of high school), but on the bright side, at least I have the figure to pull off a mermaid style dress? Which apparently impresses people. I would be more impressed if I actually had occasion to wear floor-length dresses.
* Went out this morning for a walk, which turned into a Borders and Whole Foods trip -- usually I just do one at a time. In the process, I: saw three mailmen on about a two miles span of St. Charles on the same side of the street, got stopped by a woman who recognized my NaNoWriMo t-shirt and is a writing teacher at a high school who made her students do NaNo last year, bought a book (this process was lengthened by the fact that of the two registers available, one was in use by a woman signing up for, apparently, everything imaginable, and the other by a guy returning several books in a complicated manner), got stopped by a man who very earnestly told me not to do drugs, made nice conversation with the cashier at Whole Foods (who automatically assumed I was an English major, I suppose because of the shirt), and got "BOO"ed at by some guy in a car on my way back to campus. Not booed, but he literally yelled, "BOO!" at me. (Did I jump? Of course I jumped; I'm jumpy
* Things I have not done: started my Art & Myth paper on Amazons, started my creative project for Spenser, started my imperial succession paper for Byzantine Civ, started my warfare paper for Medieval England. Fortunately, only two of these are due this week, and then I am on SPRING BREAK. I plan on baking a lot.
