Obligatory comment about the snow: Where I am we're expected to get about sixteen inches of snow...I'll be a bit upset if none of my classes are cancelled or if the school doesn't close down. I'm thinking about the commuters, here. Really. I am.
Today was a great day, actually. I only had one class I got to sleep in. Hallelujah!! My class for today was Literature of the Renaissance and we were going over the topic of the Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Iron Ages and how they differed from each other as well as what those different time periods meant for life for those that lived during those time periods. What really interested me was when we got onto the topic about Gods and Goddesses. I love mythology, Roman or Greek, and always find it so interesting how their stories differed from each other as well as the Roman or Greek influences changed things about them.
I usually can't remember who is who or what specifically each God's or Goddess's back story was, but I always like to learn about it. If our class could consist of only that, I'd be a happy camper. It was my only class for today so I went to work afterwards which was good as well. Then at the dining hall tonight we had a dinner with Cuban and Jamaican influences with jerk chicken and some specialties. My personal favorite from tonight was the Cuban Beef Steak with Black Bean Salsa. It's probably my favorite thing in moody (apart from some of my usual favorites) and I wish we weren't just having it this month.
And, I just finished my turn-in for my advanced creative writing class. My idea for the class this time is to do a series of short stories. That way I can work on getting things done in a quicker time frame/page limit and focus on how to tell the story in that frame. This time the main character is a twenty-six year old male. I want to try and write a guy because I'm not used to doing it, and I'm doing an older character because I want to try someone that would be at the age where he can be mature and immature at the same time so it'll give me a lot of leeway for specific things I want to happen. I finished the first one and I'm really excited to see what I come up with for my other turn-ins based around that character.
I have a lot of inspiration for it so I hope it doesn't let me down. Haha. I hope everyone had a great day.
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
