My name is Gretchen and I am a sophomore this year. I was born in Germany but I have lived in Alaska my entire life (minus 2 years in Germany). I thought about going away for college but this is my home and I’m not quite ready to leave, maybe one day though. I am taking all but one class online this semester because it works better with my work schedule.
I enrolled in this class because it is a requirement but I am excited to see what kind of readings Popa has found for us. I don’t like picking out books but I do enjoy reading so I like english classes where I get told what to read. I really enjoyed having Popa as an instructor last spring so I’m excited to be in her class again.
Until next time,
Hey Gretchen, I agree with you about the cool readings English classes usually have, I was in an English class my freshman year called “Violence in Literature.” We read part of fight club, and crazy racist stories, and war stories. I’m not a violent person but it was very intriguing. I’m sure this class will be equally as stimulating!
Have you ever made it back to Germany? Its on my next five placed I want to visit. I am in love with Europe and hopefully one day live here!
Yea, I went back when I was about 5 so I don’t remember too much about it. I’m hoping to get back there within the next couple years to see a friend that lives there. It’s a beautiful place.
If you leave you should go ahead and take me with you. It is getting a little to chilly here!
Don’t do it Gretchen, Justin sounds like a mooch 😛
Your preference for being told what to read is like the total opposite of how I am. I find that if I am asked to read something, or required to read something, I just buck against it as hard as I can. There’s a little fact about me I guess. This class makes me wicked nervous for that reason! Enjoy the reading and wish me luck in making myself do the reading at all!
