After this semester, I have one semester left (hopefully) at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
Today, finals for Fall 2011 begin. My first final isn't until 10, and then I have 2 on Wednesday.
Let's see. What did I learn?
1 - Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is about how Morgan le Fay wanted to one-up Gwenevere. I liked the story up till that point.
2 - A lot of people want me to be a teacher. I don't know if I want me to be a teacher.
3 - Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play (I think), and Hamlet's actor has to memorize over 1/3 of the play for his lines. (However, I didn't learn this in class.)
4 - I am not good at public speaking and hope to God I don't have to do it often. If I do, not like the script-version my prof had us do. It was called an outline. It was a script.
5 - I learned more about Creation theory because of DinoPaper.
6 - I learned way more than I wanted to about Andersen because of the "The Traveling Companion" paper.
7 - While on that subject, I never really gave that much thought to the interpretations of "The Traveling Companion." I wanted to do my NaNoWriMo on a retelling of the fairy tale. I quit NaNo, but I picked the project up again. Now, I have a few other things to add to my story too.
8 - I think every writer has something untoward attached to them. But then again, I think all "normal" people do too. It's just the writers that get remembered for them.
9 - Dragons wanting maiden sacrfices took on a whole new meaning.
10 - Psychologists analyze everything and totally ruined the animal-bridegroom trope in fairy tales for me. Not really, but...anyway...
I hate when the "Big People" are right. You learn more in college out the classroom than you ever do inside it. Two of these I learned in the classroom.
