Education

This quarter has been keeping me much busier than I ever anticipated.  I have lots of news to share with you!  First and foremost, I want to let you know that I am the new Assistant Resident Director of Swig Hall effective next year!  This is a promotion from the position I currently hold as Community Facilitator (also know in more traditional halls as an Resident Adviser or RA).  It’s exciting to be in a position with more administrative responsibility.  Needless to say, it will come with a new set of challenges and I’m sure I will have a lot to share with you all in the future.

My classes this quarter are amazing.  I’m only taking three full time classes and one research project.  The research project is exciting because I will be working with professors that I deeply admire to write an article that will be PUBLISHED!  More on this to come as it is a touch and go project.  We are still figuring out exactly what this will look like, but I’m excited.

My other classes are much more traditional.  I’m taking a Victorian Literature Class with an amazing reading list.  I plan to do some reviews on all of the short stories and novels that I’ve read for the class.  I have a midterm coming up and I figure the reviews will be a great way to prep for the test.

I’m also taking a Shakespeare class.  My teacher is amazing. I’ve always loved Shakespeare, but she brings him out of the past and into the present demonstrating that the issues he addresses are still deeply relevant in a modern society.  Shocking but oh so true.  More on this to come later.  I’m definitely dying to talk about the play that we are reading: we started the quarter off with Hamlet and moved on to Othello.  Both are amazing, obviously, and I even have some film reviews as I have to see film versions of the play for class.

Lastly, I’m taking a women and politics class.  It’s a very interesting and insightful class.  It has already informed on so much and I’m looking forward to picking a topic for research.  There aren’t any books for the class that really need to be reviewed on here, but I’m sure that the information that I learn from this class will be relevant in conversations both now and in the future.

The good news is that I’m dedicated to returning and turning this blog into something stronger.  I have a lot of new found energy that I think will be perfect for a comeback!
