A year later, after walking all over campus going to visit eight different people's offices, and emailing countless other people, after sending in course syllabis and arguements to why I should get credit for my Short Story class, after many tears and frustrations with the Maryland school system, I finally have credit for all four of my classes that they wouldn't give me credit for before. They transfered in three of them right before I left this semester, which was exciting, but this is one that I would have had to take over again, if I hadn't gotten it. So I have been fighting for it all summer. Finally, after all that, I have credit for it and can graduate happy (well, make that I CAN graduate...see that HL CORE he tagged on the end there...I need to have one of those clases to graduate...I now do)!! Hooray. This makes my day! I don't have to retake short story. Maybe to celebrate I will post a few of my favorite short stories on here and we can discuss them. Some of them really stick with you.
Have any of you read the Lottery? Paul's Case? Those are two of my favorites. I'll have to go home and look up the rest. Any comments about short stories? Looking back, I enjoyed reading most of them. Some of them were a little weird (like the Swimmer, or the story about the man with the wings). Yeah, I'll have to pull out that old book and flip through it.
Dear Transfer Credit Center:

Oh and I have one more non major class to take before I graduate. It has to be a history of art or an art class or I just found the one I think I am taking... I a music class. It in an intro to theory class. I think it would be fascinating. I'll have to think about it, but I am pretty sure this is what I want to take. It is either this or intro to film. But who wants to sit around and watch movies and write papers about them? I mean, some movies might be interesting, but I would probably have to watch a lot of crap that I don't want to. I'd rather learn about music and how it is made.
