Potential Schedule and Some News

Wow. I’m almost a junior! How exciting is that!? I’m almost halfway done with my college career. But a new semester means…new classes!

In a similar vein of future, I have something to share with the blog: I am officially only an Art History major.

After my trip to Philadelphia and talking to my brother’s professors at Penn about Art History graduate school, I realized that I really want to throw myself fully into Art History, that this is what I want to do with my life. I also realized that double majoring had really stressed me out of the last two years. I’ve taken five classes every semester in my first two years of college so that I could do this. ┬áBut if I want to go to graduate school in Art History, how much is an English B.A. going to help me get in? And how much might it even hurt me if taking English classes prevents me from taking Art History classes here at Agnes, or doing as well as I can in those I do take, especially my senior seminar coming up in Fall 2012.

So I talked to my advisors, who were really supportive, and I decided this would be the time to drop my English major. With my Brit Lit class this semester, I’ve just finished an English minor, so none of the classes I have taken with have been “wasted” in elective space.

My schedule for next semester reflects my changing plan, and my changing methods of maintaining sanity. I told myself that I was going to only take four classes, and I am sticking to it.

The theme of my courses is: Italia! I’m still planning on going to Italy Spring 2012, and as it would happen, the classes I get to take all have to do with Italy!

So the classes are: The Age of Cathedrals (Art History), Renaissance Italy: Ideas, Culture and Lived Experience (History), Cicero (Latin), and Italian at Emory!

I got my ring!

Ahh! I got my Agnes Scott ring! Agnes Scott is weird about this because we get our college rings when we are sophomores. But I’m glad because I don’t think I could’ve waited any longer.

Nearly of all Agnes’ alums gets this ring, and they wear them forever. I’ve met older alumane and they totally wear them! Also our design is pretty unique because it isn’t like a typical college ring, instead it is a black onyx stone with ASC carved in script into the rectangle stone. It is very big, and very fabulous.

This is the biggest tradition we have, and I can’t wait to have my first ‘black ring moment’ when I see someone randomly and get to talk to them about Agnes Scott and how wonderful it is!

realistic new year’s resolutions

I never come up with new year’s resolutions during new year’s, but I’ve thought might this year. But they are realistic and mostly self-improving.

1. Stop biting my nails: This is always my new year’s resolution, but this year it is realistic because I’ve already stopped biting them! They are the prettiest they have ever been, which is great because my Agnes Scott Ring ceremony is coming up and there are a lot of hand pictures involved in this ceremony. I can’t wait!

2. Stop slut-shaming/gossiping about other women: I hate that most of my relationships with women are based on judging other women. I really want to work on this.

3. Make this scarf: It isn’t exactly a pattern, but I think I can figure it out from her thought process. And I think I like the bookshelf idea better, which I imagine I could include about six books on. Which ones would I choose!? Probably A Room with a View, Emma, Mrs. Dalloway, The Odyssey, Villette, and either Wuthering Heights or Don Quixote. I’ll have to plan it out as the titles are of such varying lengths, but what fun!
