Shakespeare, Shakespeare everywhere! I dunno if the prevalence of Shakespeare references around me are just more noticeable since I watched "As You Like It", but I don't think I really noticed any references until I settled on a quote to use in a Shuttle!Verse chapter. Whatever it was, there are now Shakespeare references everywhere and I am loving it. I keep getting all starry-eyed.

Being on a literary kick, let me share with you more of my geeky-ness.

First something from one my lit class notes. (I don't remember what class, how sad).

A Victorian Daily Schedule )


Next lookie what I bought!
Graphic Novels )

Along that same vein, and because I feel like I've bored you too often, have a meme.


Produce a list of 100 female characters you think are awesome, love, etc.
1 through 100 here )

Books and bookish things are in italics. Please feel free to ask me about any of them. Why I chose them, who I didn't choose someone else, etc.

Recent conversations have led me to thinking about religious studies. Now don’t worry I’m not about to get all religious on you. I’m talking about classes I took for my English degree. I cheated some in the “taking classes” area. If you were in the honors program some of the classes you took from that department counted as other requirements. This was AMAZING. Nothing quite like being required to take an agricultural class (like the uses for natural gases) and instead being able to take “Thomas Jefferson: The man, the legend” instead. (One of the AG professors was in love with T.J. and as such offered a fantastic class on him. He would give out prizes in class. Wine, cider, books, specialty mugs. But I digress.)

 

Professors can be awesome and they can also be insane )

 

Blah, all this reminiscing has me thinking about other fun classes. Or other class moments. (Because as much a pain in the butt those two classes were with the Evil professor, the man was funny, and as we put on his evaluation “he knows everything about everything.”) I may do further reminiscing in the future. “Vampires as Literature” “The Origin of the Child” (GOD that was an amazing class too! Loved discussing how children became “innocent” in literature.) “American Literature II” (Typee discussions!), My Shakespeare classes (It’s all fruit!- Inside joke I can explain). “Children’s Literature”, “Modern Literature” (Shit class, the professor was also a crazy person. Literally everyone failed and the curve was insane.) I'll probably talk about us categorizing our professors as mythical creature. (We had a mummy, troll, faerie, werewolf, and so on.)

 

I think I’ll also see if I can find any of my old work from my Creative Writing classes.

So those of you who've done fanmixes, or other hosting things of that nature. What sites do you recommend? And if you have the time some pros and cons, if you use more than one site, or know of more than one.

Thanks so much for any help!

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] nikki4noo and round-about tagged by several others.

1) List 7 habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2) Tag 7 People to do the same.
3) Don't tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to" (of course, we all do still have free will so if this isn't your thing... feel free to ignore)

Did I mention I can be very verbose? )

I tag…hmm. A lot of people have already been tagged or done this already. So if you want to do it consider yourself tagged. I’m enjoying reading about people! But I also tag:

[livejournal.com profile] mach1n3
[livejournal.com profile] fishspots
[livejournal.com profile] araglas
[livejournal.com profile] selinamoonfire
[livejournal.com profile] snowdarkred
[livejournal.com profile] shingo_the_pest
[livejournal.com profile] swing_set13

Because all those above know that they don’t have to do it if they don’t want to.
