This evening marked the last class for the “Women in Literature” course. The course isn’t quite done yet – I have to stop by the professor’s office and turn in my final paper by 5:00 tomorrow – but at least I don’t have to show up for class anymore.
I don’t think I’m ever gonna enroll in an accelerated course again. And by “accelerated” I don’t mean “difficult,” I mean “fast.” The course began on June 6th. In the three and a half weeks since then, I’ve had class eight times (two hours each time), plus an online lecture, an individual half hour meeting with the professor, and several discussions on the “Blackboard,” which is the school’s online discussion board. I’ve also had to read three novels (totaling about 800 pages) and watch three films.
On the upside, from May of 2010 until May 2011, I had a grand total of eight credits from Hamline University. In the past six weeks I’ve managed to double that. So, yay me!
Tomorrow, after 5:00, I plan to get on with about ten other things I’ve been meaning to get to lately. Stay tuned.
