more blathering on about school... @ 01:28 am

wish I had something else to talk about other than school, but not much else is going on these days.

school is still going well... currently have three papers I need to write, in a format I have never written in before, something called a "Close Reading"... is this some new thing? I had never even heard of a close reading before this semester, and now I have 3 of them for 3 different classes, and they are all due within the same 24 hour period... am kind of struggling with them because I keep wanting to focus on content and interpretation of the material, whereas apparently the point of a close reading paper is to write about the format and presentation of the material... I may have to take advantage of the writing lab that the university offers and go get help from a tutor... I've never had to seek out help on a paper before.

Out of curiosity, I just did a google search for "close reading" and something that I was reading sparked an idea (hehehe, I got hit by the paper-writing-equivelant of a plot bunny) and I got some work done on 1 of the three... the other two I still need to work on. I hope that my professors talk more about the papers in class, I can't be the only one that is having a hard time with these.

I think my most interesting class this semester is my Human Sexuality class... I find it more enjoyable than any of my other classes... although it, like the others, requires a lot of reading... speaking oh which, I should really get back to it now.
