School Time Wondra

As you know, the last three years I've been working toward my BA (HONS) in English Language and Literature through The Open University. (Part time, while working full time.) Last year I took Children's Literature and Reading and Studying Literature and it was a tough ride - but worth it.

I just had my exam results back today and I got two Grade 3 Passes. Whoot! I typically don't test well so this is a great result for me! It also means that my honors classification at the moment is a 2.2. I can't believe I've done that well, while trying to juggle everything else too.

I've signed up for my next two classes: Worlds of Literature (which studies the development of the English language) and Creative Writing. I'm really looking forward to both of these classes so I hope my financial aid comes through okay. There is one last class that I would really like to take but doesn't start until the spring: Grammar in Context. I know it makes me sound really sad to say that I want to take that class but a little refresher is always a good thing.

The best part about the two classes that I've signed up for this coming semester is that I won't have to buy twenty novels for them. I might actually have some time to read the things I want to read for a change!
