Finished my Latin reading...

Ok... I always feel so behind the other languages. I mean, they all speak theirs. Not well, usually, but still. I mean, I can affect a better French accent and the most I can say is "Bonjour! Oui? Je m'appelle Stephanie." And yet, whenever I say something like "Let's try speaking Latin!" I am met with a hearty chorus of 'no's. Not that that surprises me. Tough language. And we don't memorize vocabulary, so I can't go around reading outside of my textbook (although within my textbook, I can do pretty well). We use a college text from the University of Michigan, by the way. It's purple. But right now, we're not focusing on the language. We're reading "The First Man in Rome", which is technically a novel. It's our history lesson. It's... political. It's also... slashy. And it means to be, which is what's keeping me interested. But it's sexual enough that they blocked out the naughty bits. With blue ink. So I can tip my book to the side and still read it. Dammit, but it's so hard to keep from writing journal entries about why the author should spend more time around Lucious and Metrobious.

NPR is running two shows at the same time and it is really, really... weird. O.O Car Talk is overlapping with the news...

So... journal entries... to keep from writing about gay men, I think I'm going to try to write about politics, Gaius Marius, and the yolk.

And Mr. Philips can speak Greek. I think. He can at least write it on the board and it looks neat. I'm liking Mr. Philips more and more, even if he did try to ask me what I was getting for Christmas in front of the class (*snort*). I'm still glad I have Susel for class, though. Forever and ever, peace out.

  • Don't talk to me about life.

    I feel like I should write in here, at least for myself. So I will. Hah. The beginning of my semester was murderous, due to one of the off-campus…

  • I'm not cool enough for the Internet

    Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it.…

  • Another drive-by update

    It's a bit sad that updating has become a bi-yearly affair for me, but it's an unfortunate side effect of working and trying to pull my life…
