“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
But it really isn't a grind...
Since I started this University thing, four years ago, I have discovered many things about myself. I am able to do this, maybe not as fast as the younger set, but I hold my own. I enjoy doing this. NO, I love doing this. I am passionate about English and love discussing the books that I read. Although, I do have responsibilities to my family, which sometimes get in the way, I will spend every possible waking moment in doing what needs to be done to improve myself, encourage myself, and make myself stronger in my writing ability and in seraching out the themse or devices that are used in the works. I only control the path I take but not what happens along the way so this is one heck of an adventure.
I got up this morning and before I had my first cup of coffee drank; I was researching my second paper of the term. I have my first paper in the final stages and to be handed in tomorrow. Yes, the GEEK that I am started a paper before classes started. I never would have done that 20 odd years ago!
However, I am back at it. Therefore, this blog as you all well know, will be going on Hiatus for a while, while I research the 5 papers I have this term; 3 for American Literatures, one for Aboriginal Literatures and one for Canadian Historical Art and just plain juggling family life, household chores, and Supreme Chaos! Although at times I will feel I am losing it, I will get through it and love most of it! I might post the odd photo, but that is about it, no time for deep musings.
So check back once and while to see if I have posted, but do not hold your breath. I will be busy...maybe I will post my first A paper here...one never knows.
Have a great Fall!
