Today was the first day i was really engaged throughout the entire class in econ. Dude, this is why i'm taking this class (and why i'm taking macro next semester) -- learning how the world works is fascinating.
Thusly, since it seems appropriate to post here, here's what i'm taking next semester. 4 English classes on Tuesday/Thursday and Intro Macro Econ MWF mornings. I know it'll be insane, but i think it'll be a better insane than this semester. I'm really excited about a majority of the classes, and there won't be any "this is cross-listed with English but isn't actually a literature class" and it'll all be in English and i get some of my favorite profesors again.
