In case anyone cares I thought I’d mentioned my grades thus far for last quarter. I’m just waiting in one more grade, which I think is a B or B+, or somewhere around there.
Modern German Fiction w/ Theo Honnef: A
Intro to Musical Drama (Opera) w/ Dan Seldon: A+
(The + is actually meaningless unless you want to be “valid Victorian”, as I call it. Since I have no desire to be that I’m just glad it was an A)
A note on both classes. I really enjoyed German Fiction. I’m keeping several of the books from it because I quite enjoyed them. Intro to Musical Drama really helped me develop a taste for opera. I’m quite fond of a few operas now and have actually seen a live opera, which was awesome. I learned quite a lot about the depth of the musical genre and even a little about the history of music and my sneaking suspicion that someone was behind the destruction of classical music, leading to the massive popularity of crap. Well, that’s a little harsh. There’s certainly so good older music, but you get the point.
So just waiting on one more (Literary Interpretation). I’m rather surprised I did so well to be honest. The two courses I have been graded on are upper division, so to get such a high grade is a good thing. It really wasn’t all that challenging though.
