Homework Season

Well, the time has come yet again to start doing homework.
My schedule this semester is quite unique, so I expect to work hard but also have fun!
Here's what I am taking:

Women, Race, and Gender in the Media: The title is pretty self explanatory. It has a similar format to an English class but it seems much more casual in the whole atmosphere of discussion. The class is all women, so we can pretty much talk about whatever we want! In the first day, we already talked about waxing. There seems to be a hell of a lot of room for creativity in the assignments, which I'm pretty excited about.

The American Revolution and Its Afterlives: This is a senior seminar, and fulfilling my last English requirement. The material is not the most current or exciting, but my professor seems very clear on that and he has already shown us some very humorous, yet relevant contemporary connections to the material. All in all, I was a bit worried I wasn't going to like it, but it actually looks like its going to be a class I look forward to going to!

Introduction to Drawing: Another hilarious professor who said on the first day, "We aren't going to get stoned, look at naked people, and have a bunch of feelings." It seems like its going to be very rigorous- 6 hours a week of line drawing and at least 3 outside of class, but he guaranteed that we will all be better drawers once we leave. I'm excited to work hard on something that I find enjoyable.

Creative Writing: I haven't been in this class yet, but we already have an assignment to write a few poems for the first day of class. I really look forward to having a reason/opportunity to write creatively. I used to write things all the time, but then I ran out of time, since my classes have consistently demanded me to churn out paper after paper each semester of literary analysis. It fries the brain. I'm actually a little nervous, because I have been writing essays for so long I hope I can break out of that pattern to do something more interesting.

Anyway, you'll definitely hear more about this. And when I have some interesting drawings/ writing to show you I will post it and you can all witness my progress. However, if I keep sleeping in this late I'm never gonna do well! I don't EVER sleep till noon so I don't even know what to do with myself. Do I eat breakfast?
