Sometimes at work I have some down time. To fill this downtime, I make projects for myself. Today’s project: look up syllabi of interesting classes to find the required reading. I made 3 pages of lists of future readings and movies to check out. The first list I plan to tackle includes:

Dislocations: Visions Progress and Modernity in the Early Twentieth-Century American Novel:
The Sound of Fury (William Faulkner)
Cane (Jean Toomer)
The Sun Also Rises (Ernest Hemingway)
Home to Harlem (Claude McKay)
Tender is the Night (F. Scott Fitzgerald)
Three Lives and Tender Buttons (Gerturde Stein)
The Fruit of the Tree (Edith Wharton)
Quicksand/Passing (Nella Larsen)
The Valley of the Moon (Jack London)
Twilight Sleep (Edith Wharton)
Bead Givers (Anzia Yezierska)
Manhattan Transfer (Dos Passos)
The Blacker the Berry (Wallace Thurman)
Dark Princess (WEB DuBois)

Today I finished There Are No Shortcuts, a lovely inspirational teaching book. I enjoyed it, though it was a bit whiney at times.

I descided in the spirit of Christmas and Rafe Esquith, I’m going to check out A Christmas Carol and read it over break.

Some highlights of this last weekend (there are many!):

  1. Babysitting 🙂
  2. Baking Christmas gifts with Marianne
  3. Rico’s with Christie and Jared
  4. Slumber party with Christie
  5. Olde European brunch
  6. Seeing Molly paint at church
  7. Painting a helicopter instead of studying
  8. Another slumber party at Christie’s

What I should be doing right now???? Math take home!
