I am SO excited!!!

Okay, two things.

First, I got my syllabus for Gothic Literature which I'm taking online.
I have to read 7 novels, 9 articles and short stories, write 3 papers and have weekly quizzes and discussions.

I am SO excited! And SHOCKED. That is a lot of reading. And that's only ONE of my classes. My life is about to go from 0 to 100 in nothing flat. But I'm so ecstatic because the reading list is so incredible, and some of these books have been on my "to read" list for quite a while. I'll finally get to read some Ann Radcliffe and The Castle of Otranto, both of which feature prominently in Northanger Abbey, one of Austen's finest.

This is why I LOVE literature. It's all interconnected. It's like a massive spider web spun from words, and everything somehow can be traced back to other fibers of the web. It is so deliciously exciting and I adore it. I wish everyone got this worked up over words on paper, but alas. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it. ;)

Secondly, Bethany will be home for A WHOLE WEEK longer than we originally thought! She was only going to be home for a few days, but now I have even longer to see her before she goes away again (until like, CHRISTMAS). This makes me quite happy.

FINALLY something of substance to post! And good news at that! Hooray!

Also, thanks,, for selling obscure Gothic titles on the cheap. :)

  2. I'm in that class!!! GAAAH! I have a feeling this class may be the death of me.
