We interupt this blog for Faust

Once again it has been a while since I have blogged. I have been battling a cold/ cough. The cough is bad enough to drive me to see a Dr. tomorrow. As many of you know I have seen way to many Dr. in the last couple of years. I am not too worried but want make sure my lungs are okay.
I started two new classes Tuesday; one is titled Faust, a look at good and evil. Now I have been going to school for four years and am used to instructors who tells us we have to spend at least 10 hours a week on homework. Normally this makes me laugh as three hours usually is what it takes to get an A. But this class, wow! I have spent about 8 hours between reading and writing. We have three books, three movies, one CD and countless articles to get through in 7 weeks. I just finished Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe and some articles on the Reformation. Thank goodness I love this era but still…
The other class is on Great Trials in American History. I will end up studying the Scope’s, Witch and Cherokee trails. Not sure if I will have time to read anything else, so if I am M.I.A you now know why!

  1. Thanks Diane, turns out I have the beginning stages of pneumonia. Gonna take my medicine and read Faust. You take care of yourself and happy reading!


  2. Sari, – take care of yourself, take it easy and hope you can knock the pneumonia out asap! Faust sounds quite interesting, I'd really enjoy a class like that – let us know what you think when you're feeling better 😀
