I guess this means I'm an evil geek

anything greater than knowledge. Professor
Flitwick will be pleased to make your
acquaintance. Congratulations!

Your a Slytherin! Sly, sarcastic, mysterious and
determined you'll do anything to get your way.
You can be hard to get along with, but first
looks can be decieving because underneith the
Slytherin pride is a kind hearted soul just
waiting for show. You can find the good in

I'd like to make a button that says that: EVIL GEEK. I kinda like it. I'm really glad to be back now that the first week of classes are over. Relieved to be back as the secretary/historian in FMLA, especially after a summer of just sitting at home stewing in outrage. It's going to be a busy semester so I think I'm going to focus a bit more on my classes here on my blog. On the one hand I've got Queer Theory and a Women's Studies course, and on the other I'm studying Old English Literature, Early American Literature, and a course in the history of literary criticism. So my reading is going to be all over the place; I've already had to drag myself through Plato's The Republic and Aristotle's Poetics. The Greeks are so. fucking. boring. A philosopher I am not. I am also forced to read Oedipus Rex (AGAIN. please, make it stop!) and The Last of the Mohicans. But I also get to study Beowulf (huzzah!), and one of my favorite novels ever, Evelina. And Macbeth too, so it all works out in the end.
I think I'll also try something a little different and just post excerpts or quotes from whatever I'm reading, passages that I particularly liked or I've been thinking about. I might not have time to post any thoughts or commentary with it, but I wanted a bit of a change from the "review" format, "I read such-and-such a book and did or didn't like it for whatever reasons."
