My Final Undergrad Papers

Okay, because there are a couple of weirdos out there who actually read my academic papers (aside from the professors who are forced under penalty of unemployment to do so), I have posted my final quarter papers on the They Made Me Do It! blog.

The first, Animal Magnetism, is my not-so-scientific science paper for Environmental Landscapes. I decided to do my paper on house pets and how domesticating them has changed the way we live over the centuries. It's my favorite of the three. (My journal entries for this class will be making an appearance over at Naked Voodoo Chicken Dance.)

The second is for my Retelling the Myth of Romantic Love Through Fairytales class. This was a one-day lecture by a woman who is an expert in myth and folklore of all kinds, and has an amazing ability to tell a story. I'm sorry I only got the chance to take one class with her.

The third is Martyrdom, Sacrifice and Cunning, the Women-in-Greek Antiquities paper. I don't like the Greek classics. I'm sorry, but I'd rather read Jane Austin (and I'm not a big Jane Austen fan, either). Still, there were some moments I liked in the class, particularly after we'd finished The Odyssey (don't get me started there!), and actually tackled the plays.

My advice -- run, run away and hide. I only post them for posterity's sake, and because a couple of regular readers seem to like them. So go... don't go... I honestly won't blame you either way.

I went to a wedding on Saturday for the daughter of a very old friend. It was a "Sunrise, Sunset" moment. I'm working on a post about it, but its going to take a bit of time. It should be ready in the next couple of days. I have to wait for the "art," as they say in journalism (which apparently blogging either is, or isn't, depending with whom you happen to be speaking).
