realizations and Edward Sharpe

The teachers’ work room on a Wednesday morning.
The physics teacher next to me looking at excel documents, formulas and calculations.
I’m sitting, feet up on my desk, reading a short story that I’m thinking about letting my students read.

I’m realizing, more every day, that I chose the right subject to study at university. Although I didn’t feel that way at all for the first year or so at uni. And I still don’t know what I will do with this BA in English.  I won’t be a teacher forever I think.
Still – it feels good to be content about the decisions I’ve made.

LOVE this song.
It was on repeat at my house for a few weeks this summer. While I sat by the computer writing the thesis.
I still like it so much. It makes me smile and want to dance and sing very loudly.

SWOON

Swoon is the word of the day.
Swoon. Swoon. Swooning. Swoon. Swoooooon. Funny word and a funny thing; to swoon. I laughed at it a few times today.
I was reading some excerpts from Morte Darthur today (Brit. Lit. exam on Monday) and all King Arthur and his knights seemed to do was swooning. They swooned one after the other. One swooned and then his guts came out. Seriously.
And when King Arthur isn’t swooning he is crying.
When we read this in class our teacher kept excusing King Arthur and said that these extracts were poorly choosed, they weren’t exactly typical of Arthur’s character!
Swoon.

I’ve got some reading to do

I finally got round to buying the rest of the textbooks for this semester.

072

I have to get through this stack this semester. Actually there’s one book missing, the syntax book I need to buy is sold out. Yeah seriously, sold out…
And as you might guess I’m studying English – but that does not mean my English is perfect, so bear with me 😉 This stack doesn’t look so bad to me, I’m still very enthusiastic about my classes and determined to study hard and so on. Let’s see how I feel in a few weeks time!

School again

I think I’ve finally reached a decision about which courses to take.  And I’m taking more than enough of courses! There will be a LOT to do this semester, with work and all. I might being taking on too much but we’ll have to see. And for the first time since I started university I have some sort of plan, a goal. I want to finish this damn BA in English!
So these next few months will mainly consist of reading, work and reading some more. Or at least they should. And I don’t mind so terribly much.
But first thing’s first – I’m going to Copenhagen on wednesday! Haven’t really had the time to think about it really or look forward to it and there’s a lot I have to do and sort out before I go. The only thing I’ve thought of and decided is that I am going to buy my favorite magazine to read on the plane! That’s the only thing I’ve planned..

I like the autumn.
