I’ve always been an avid reader so reading five books in a semester wasn’t difficult for me. What was difficult was finding the time to read and write reviews while still keeping up with other class work. Not only did I read five books this semester, but I also read a play each week for my Introduction to Shakespeare class. Balancing Shakespeare with other reading and writing assignments proved to be tougher than I had anticipated.
Overall, I really enjoyed keeping this blog throughout the semester, so I don’t think this is going to be my last post. I might post more of my photography and some of the fiction I’m working on in the future as opposed to continuing writing book reviews. If I read a particularly great book, I may review it but don’t expect regular reviews like I’ve been doing.
It’s the end of the semester and I’m excited for summer, but I’m also going to miss this class. I feel like I got to know my classmates a lot better than in most classes because we shared our writing. This is the first time in my life that I’ve truly enjoyed writing because I’ve never really written much fiction prior to this class and now I don’t like writing literary analysis anymore. Isn’t that funny?
Going completely off-topic here, recently I’ve been listening to The All-American Rejects. Probably because I got to see them in concert about a month ago at Universal Studios. They played all five songs I knew by them at the time and more but I really enjoyed all of their other songs as well. My favorite performance-wise was probably “Kids in the Street.” Concerts are great!
I’ve got so many plans for the summer. I hope to take a road trip with a friend (who is also a photographer) and drive across the state, maybe down to the Keys, stopping wherever we feel like to take photos. I’m really excited about that and if I get to, I’ll probably post more about it and post some of my pictures. I also want to rent a boat on the St. Johns again. This is the place I’ve rented from. Pontoon boats are a blast!
Anyway, goodbye for now. I’ll be back sporadically through the summer.
