Finished my first semester of grad school.
I took a light load this first semester: historiography (required), Genocide (grad/advanced under grad.), and Beginning Arabic I (undergrad). I haven't been in school since 1994 when I finished my law degree. After getting shit canned at the DA's office, I realized how much the legal profession sucks and went back to school. I just turned in my final papers yesterday: a 20-page paper on the Assyrian Massacre in Iraq in 1933 and a six page paper on Foucault. I think I have a shot at getting perfect scores in the two grad classes and a B+ in the language class.

Next semester: Middle East seminar (grad), some feminist class--I forgot the name (grad/advanced under grad.) and one other grad level seminar--maybe Medieval. Plus Beginning Arabic II. And I've been selected to fill in for a TA who is going on maternity leave for the semester.

So basically, I'll have no free time next semester. That sucks, but it will be a great experience. It was too late to apply for a TA position when the DA shit-canned me. 8 years in that shit hole, and he had the nerve to blamer me for a shift in attitude on the court of appeals. Fucking politician.

Enjoy. I'm envious.

2. Awesome.
I'm in my second year of my M.Ed. I'm taking it slow though. One class per semester is all I can afford.
