school days

I am currently making some changes to the way that the blogging happens over here at Academia Nuts, but it is slow going as I get used to my brand new laptop, henceforth known as the Major, after the Ghost In The Shell. Hoopefully stuff will get done soon, and I will adjust to the Major's keyboard overtime.

It was a long day at school today. I bought all but three of my books, and it cost me under 150$, which is quite impressive. I've flipped through the ones for my english elective courses, and they focus a lot on using Reader Response (or, as Mark Lipton would say, Reader Oriented) theories to teach texts to high school students. It is intriguing, to say the least.

I will post more later--right now, I need a nap.

First off, a measily hundred and fifty bucks? Damn you and your soft, fat, bourgie I/S kind! Grrrr.... If you'd like to see the small library required for the J/I's stop by my place some time and take a gander.

"The Major", eh? I like it. I'm still torn between Lackey (protege of Overlord, for which my last machine was named) and Erasmus (from the Legends of Dune trilogy). And by torn I mean I'm giving it no thought as I'm trying to get set for practice teaching Tuesday. Joy. Good luck to you, we'll trade war stories later. Have fun.
