So it's the second week of the semester. Just like old times, I missed my first class because I took too long getting ready in the morning. That caused me grief, but at least I didn't miss anything. The second class was better. Last week I complained about that teacher condescending to us, like we didn't know how to expose our "true" selves in our writing and it was her job to help us. She told us today that after reading our first two assignments she has realized that we are "true" already, so she can get on to the good stuff. That gives me hope. The last class was a bit of a snoozer. We're reading The Odyssey; I mean, come on. But we talked about books and movies that we loved. I was asked why I love my favorite books and movies. I said that respect movies that are made well, but there are movies that are bad that I like even more because they're fun. I love Casablanca and Chinatown and Platoon and other great movies, but give me a Jackie Chan flick any day and I'm happy. That was fun to say. One more class tonight.
