wrapping up the semester

2013-03-19_0026

To say that it has been a crazy year would definitely be an understatement.

I can’t believe that I’m writing this post, writing about how I am almost done with my first year at college. I want to tell you about all these crazy-awesome things happening to me, and why I only pop on here occasionally.

First of all, I took 18 credits this semester. Call me crazy (since most people do), but it’s been pretty fantastic. Yesterday was the last time I would ever sit in class as a freshman. Needless to say, I haven’t done much with this blog, and I miss writing to you.

You’re probably thinking that I’ll be online a lot more now that I’m done with classes, but that’s not entirely true. I’m not done with classes. In two weeks, I fly to Oxford with several classmates to study several eras of literature. For one class, I’ll be studying Shakespeare and other authors at the time. I’ll see several of his plays at the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London and take field trips to palaces. This is crazy. I can’t believe this is happening. For my second class, I’ll be studying (tutorial-style) Virginia Woolf with an Oxford don. We’ve spoken via email and discussed the reading list. I can’t wait to meet and learn from her.

I won’t be in Oxford the entire summer. This July, I’ll be back at school working on research with one of my favorite professors. I can’t wait to tell you more about the research when the time comes, but for now, I will just mention that Virginia Woolf is a current obsession. In case you haven’t noticed already (see above paragraph).

I will be blogging about the Oxford trip, and I hope to maintain a weekly blogging schedule. But just in case you don’t hear from me, you’ll probably be able to find me with my nose in a book, somewhere in either Oxford or DC.

Do you have any summer plans that you’re excited about?
