This semester is going to be very busy. I’m taking 5 classes…3 of which require me to write papers often. Honors Greek Tragedy is probably going to challenge me the most. While I enjoy reading plays and learning about Greek history along the way…if you’ve ever picked up a play by Sophocles, you know that it’s really not the easiest thing to get through. Thankfully my professor is very knowledgeable about Greece and it’s history in general and is very well versed in its literature. I’ve only had one class with him, but he seems to present it in a fun way and still teach us a lot.
I’m excited for my Media Studies class as well—after all, it is my major. I wasn’t able to take a media studies class last semester because they didn’t offer what I had to take, so it’s so nice to get back to what I love. Media affects us all so many times a day we don’t even keep track. As you’re reading this, you’re being affected. It’s truly amazing how much technology has taken over and engrained itself in our daily lives.
One of the best parts about this semester though, is that I only have class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I did this on purpose though to make room for my internship at the Green Bride Guide. I’m so excited to start as a content editor intern sometime next week. I’ll post links to what I write! But, since it hasn’t started, I get a really long weekend—made even longer because we got a snow day on Thursday!
I cannot believe how much snow is on the ground. Connecticut got over 2 feet earlier in the month (when I wasn’t here thankfully) and none of it has melted. So on top of that, we got a little over a foot of snow Wednesday night. The guys that clear the roads and walkways on our campus stayed overnight to get everything ready in the morning. But lucky us, classes were canceled even though the snow stopped before sunrise. Here are some pictures outside my residence hall.

I didn’t realize why they called for a snow day until I had to go bail out my car. Thankfully one of my residents helped me—it was a semi-big job. Because I didn’t have a shovel, we literally had to dig my car out. The snow was all the way up to the middle of the tires and the entire front of my car was covered in a shelf of snow. It took us about ten minutes. My poor little California car got a big taste of this terrible New England Winter! I'm just glad I didn't have to do this by myself, early in the morning!
