Sunday, Sunday...

Sundays are always interesting days on the Beloit campus. It's quiet and subdued, a stark contrast to the frenzy of Saturday nights; a deep breath before the academic plunge of the week. For me, it's the last line of defense between me and my homework, for I am a terrible procrastinator. Even now, as I write this blog, I am participating in my natural resistance to just get things done. I've been doing really well this year, though, waking up early instead of staying up late. I hope this will help me in the long run with my intellectual pursuits, especially since I'm taking a few reading heavy courses this semester. Which brings me to my classes: History Workshop (Hist 190), History of Education in Southern Africa (Hist 150), Principles of Geology (Geo 100), and an interdisciplinary course being co-taught by Amy Sarno, a theatre director here, and a Fulbright Scholar from Ireland called Do You See What I'm Saying. It's about community based theatre, particularly in the greater town of Beloit, and our goal for the semester is to create a play based off of oral histories we're going to obtain from community members. It's a bit more complicated than that, but it's really an exciting and interesting class.
Anywho, life is amazing. Next time expect information about my club involvement and/or summer!

The suspense is simply dreadful, isn't it?
