ani, face up and sing
let me think. oh man, in my tutorial today... we just read this novel, short letter, long farewell
by peter handke... and it was really, really, really superfucked up. like... (james joyce * tom wolfe)^ angry german pomo. i mean whoa. and so we were discussing it, and being like "um.. it was really weird." because seriously, i can't even describe this book. anyway. and then our professor quoted this french philosopher whose name i won't even try to spell... it used an x in a way the letter just wasn't meant to be used. anyway. this philosopher said that a really good book forced the reader out of their chair to chase after it. and we talked about how books that we relate to and like, they come to us. but shit like this, you have to chase after. and... i don't know how i feel about that.
interlude: i'm taking a "which x-man would you date quiz?" and i bet anything it'll be bobby. anyway.
but then i guess, to an extent, it's true. (the book thing, not bobby. well, maybe the bobby thing too. but yeah.) because i mean like... if you look at like sandman
or american gods
or something, yeah, you do have to chase it a little. i guess i'm just not used to this much wtf?
of course, the possibility still exists that the book is just crap.
Which X-man would you date? brought to you by Quizilla
hey wow, not bobby.
anyway. worked out my schedule for next semester, i think. i don't think i should have any trouble getting into any of them *crosses fingers* so.
mwf 8-9: major asian religions
mwf 9-10: reading and discussion of hispanic texts
t 10-12& th 10-11: intro to shakespeare (technically i could take a 200 level, but i want this. because, other than this, there's only a 300-level shakespeare, not a 200... yeah. and i want shakespeare now! *flail*)
mwth 2-3: intro to stats (yes, boo math... but i feel that the fact that this can also be taken for social studies credit bodes very well for it.)
so yeah. early mornings again 3/5 of the week, but tth will be nice.
