Today was the first day of Fall Semester at Utah State University. After taking off the last two semesters, it was wonderful to be back in class today. I have enrolled in some interesting classes: 19th Century British Literature, Literary Analysis, and Poetry Writing are the three I'm registered for. I sat through three hours of 19th Century Brit Lit this evening with a sense of thrill at being back. I also felt a touch of nerves worrying if I really have what it takes to do all that is required. I started on the reading immediately because there is a paper due on Labor Day (what? isn't that a holiday??)
I expect to learn A LOT, work HARD, and read a BUNCH this semester. I was hoping to get back to blogging, but I think I may be too busy studying, reading, and writing papers (and poems---yikes!). Happy new semester and back-to-school, everyone!
