To graduate on time I'll have to take an extra class for the remaining 3 semesters. It's cheaper than taking a summer semester because of lab fees and all that good stuff.
Anyways, my classes for next semester are:
British Literature - The Beginnings to 1789
Introduction to Literary Theory and Criticism
Popular Lit - The Gothic Tradition
The Victorian Novel
Lord of the Rings and the Medieval Heroic Myth
Music and Literature
The Victorian Novel class has 7 books. The Gothic lit class has, I believe, 6. Lit theory has 4 or 5. Lord of the Rings, obviously, has 3 books and many many poems.
I'm heading back to school on Monday so that I can get a head start on all of the reading. For the first week of school I need to read Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, King Lear and 3 critical essays.
So in order to keep track of all my reading and classes and stuff I invested some of my meager savings in this:
It's the Palm Z22 - specifically advertised as a great palm pilot for college students, it's got the basics that I need. Calendar, contacts and a place to make to-do lists. Doesn't hold music, doesn't connect to the internet, doesn't have a lot of extra crap I'll never use, and there's only one game that might distract me during boring classes.
