This week, has been just as crazy as the last. However, I am getting into the swing of things. Adjusting to new classes and figuring out what is expected of me and when the deadlines are, has always been a struggle for me. Regardless I am REALLY enjoying this class. It is forcing me to think critically as I read others posts and find flaw not only in their writing but my own. I have always thought of myself as a strong writer, but in technical writing. Storytelling and reflection are seldom writing styles I use, and it is nice to strengthen myself in other areas of writing.
On another note, classes are going well. I have gotten in the swing of things, so to speak and feel much less overwhelmed. As I always like to say, I’m “getting my life together” as I balance assignments, exams, readings and of course work.
I am truly very excited to see where this semester takes me. I have just got that gut feeling that I am going to really learn, and be successful this semester (knock on wood, ha ha).
A note on Ramayana:
This book is crazy. It is unlike anything I have ever read before. The stories within the story are so entraining. It adds such a nice little flare to the reading, like little side notes. Honestly, at first I was worried about this book. I know nothing about India and this book was instantly discussing gods and goddesses and famous Indian characters. It was a little overwhelming. Yet, Narayan really finds a way to keep it simple enough for those of us, like me, who have no idea about the culture to keep up and understand.
I know I say this all the time, but I really am excited to dive into this class and, probably for the first time LEARN instead of regurgitate information.
