Life Update/Grad School Update

Hello everyone! I have been ridiculously busy over the last month and have been slowly working my way through my TBR list while still reading my assigned novels. Recently, I did have to re-read Beowulf and I read Amitav Ghosh’s The Shadow Lines for the first time. Neither are of particular interest to me, but I do have more novels coming up soon. I might review some I read for class along with my TBR.

Anyways, I have been teaching a College Composition 1 class for a month now and it has been…challenging. It has been a bit of a struggle. My class is rather quiet. Normally, I wouldn’t mind this but I need them to participate. I’m sure some of you understand, whether you have been the teacher or the student. My other classes have been going well, though. Even if the subject matter isn’t my favorite, I still have found something worthy of talking about. I also have a desk all to myself, so there have been some plus sides. I’m going to be getting into working on my portfolio soon, which is what I need to graduate. I’m worried, but in a healthy way.

This has been my small life update. It is snowing like crazy right now, so I haven’t been able to get out much. I have some shorter assigned novels, which means I can catch up a bit with my casual reading. Hopefully, I’ll be getting you my review of Dracul by Dacre Stoker and JB Barker. In the meantime, thanks for reading this and I hope you are all making it through this rather dreary beginning to 2020.
