Off Again!

Tomorrow is the day I go back to Redeemer.

I have spent much of the day so far packing up. I forgot how much stuff I have. It seems like I won't need most of it, and I am actually leaving a fair bit at home. The worst has been the decision of what books to bring, what books to leave.

As you can see, I haven't done a very good job of picking and choosing what stays and what goes. I have a sort of attachment to all of my books.
I think that's okay, considering my major is English Literature and Writing (yep, I have a focus now. It's a pretty big day). But still, I think that I bring the books along because really, one never knows when one might need a Classic to reference in a paper, or daily conversation. There's a few books I bring with me everywhere. C.S. Lewis' 'Screwtape Letters' are a favourite, as is 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and Heller's 'Catch 22'.

I think one of the books that I love best is my old red version of 'Huckleberry Finn.' That particular version was published in 1929. I think it's probably worth a bit of money. Also, notice to the right hand side, the bluish coloured book by Daniel Defoe. That one is 'Robinson Crusoe' and happens to be on my fall reading list for school. Not to mention there is about 5 more books beside it that wouldn't fit in the photo.

Yep, I'm a novel junkie.

Off to school I go again, none the less. It should be a good year. I'm hoping that my courses will be as interesting as they sounded on paper. Mostly, I have histories and englishes this semester, but I also have Biology for Dummies, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday morning at 9 oclock. What a way to start off a week... But I figured that would be alright, seeing as my last class on Friday is Writerscraft.

Oh to be forced to read again!! Not that I don't have enough reading already. It would just be nice to have time to read some of the classics.

Are you taking Kiddie Lit this year?

Have a great time at school, Brittaney!
Too bad you missed the shopping in the States but don't worry, your mom bought you lots of good stuff!
Take care, Anja
