We're Back

All my finals, but one, are finished. Some with more success than others. I am fairly sure one of my teachers rewrote the exam to be long and difficult and horrible, especially for my class. *Sigh*

This sudden rush of freedom from not having homework due for another three months is almost too much to deal with. I haven't had to decide what to do in almost eight months.

Maybe I'll--

Maybe I'll-- *whisper it*--read a novel.

Wouldn't that be exiting! Especially if I were to read a novel that hasn't been deemed meritous by every English professor ever.

I think it would be amazing to read a book written by an author who hasn't won a Nobel Prize or otherwise revolutionized the English language. My Xenophon* hasn't arrived yet, and my English professor hasn't sent out the Summer homework, so for a brief period I am not obligated to read anything.

Hmm . . .

I think I will read this:

It has been sitting on my shelf since Christmas and I have recently begun to look at it longingly.


*I have to get Xenophon's Anabasis to read over the Summer. In Greek.


  1. We get summer homework for 300-level English classes?????? D: Why did I not know this?

    1. I know mine does. I think I am supposed to be reading "Middlemarch".

  2. My buddy read that book and RAVED about it! It's somewhere in my TBR pile. Maybe I'll read it in a few years.

  3. You'll enjoy Middlemarch. That's an assignment to look forward to.

  4. Ahh sweet freedom! I have recently been released from my finals (no actual test just paper after paper). Unfortunately I'm only on probation. I will be dragged back in June thanks to summer school. Until then I plan to take advantage of my brief break and try to put a dent in my TBR list! Enjoy your free reading time!
