It’s happened. My last first day of school. Class roster:
Civil War and Reconstruction
Shakespeare: Studies in the Bard
Honors: The American 1950s
Honors Capstone (project of my choice)
It should be a fun semester. There isn’t one class on that list that I’m not taking by choice/because I’ll enjoy it.
Additionally, I think I should tell you that I didn’t get the Teach for America position. Extremely disappointing, especially because the more I thought about it, the more sure I was that I could excel at leading a classroom, but I’ll survive. I’m thinking now (in a rapid, Holly-esque turnaround) that I might like to intern in a MN congressperson’s office. It’s a pipe dream, but I’d like to get into politics someday (even just the minor leagues), and this seems like a good place to start.
How about those Golden Globes, eh?
