I held back from writing about my classes until I had sat through all of them, didn’t wanna go jinxing myself. I’m taking five (ugh) classes this semester:

Crime in America
Principles of Statistics (doubleugh)
Creative Writing
Theory and Practice of Creative Writing

I have four classes Monday, one Tuesday, and three on Wednesday and Friday. I just got out of Theory & Practice of Creative Writing and I’m waiting for Ian outside the Psychology building. (sidestory: I’ve been cursed with a phone curse and can’t keep one in working order for more than a few weeks. So Ian is (bravely) letting me borrow his old Blackberry.)

In other news, I have a total girlcrush on my Theory teacher, she’s the cutest thing. I say all this in a non-creepy way, too. Jush to clarify. I’m not taking any classes towards my major this semester and so I picked up a Creative Writing minor to fill in my empty spaces for Spring. Thus far, its proving to be a pretty good choice. My Creative Writing teacher & my Theory and Practice teacher both seem like they’re legitimately passionate in what they teach, not just lecturing for a paycheck. It doesn’t hurt that the books they’ve assigned are good so far.

Speaking of books, I’ve been on a total book binge lately. What I’ve read in the last few months:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – READ THIS! It was 444 pages of mysterious goodness.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult
Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult
Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott – This was assigned reading for my CW classes, but she’s witty and perfectly open.

Maybe I should rephrase, “I’ve been on a total Jodi Picoult book binge lately.” Ten points to Kent for loading me up with good books for my birthday :) Once I finish up with my current book, I’m gonna move onto this one: The Light Between Oceans.

Whos needs friends when you have books, amirite?!  I’m right. Okay. Ian should be out shortly with my new phone technology. Yay being back in the 21st century! xoxo.
