nervewracking and kind of disappointing, but i am dropping my lit class. just too much...work and stress and 'freedom'. while I always have thoughts on things - SO MANY - I'm not really good with the whole 'write whatever you want on the topic'. I need more structure than that when i'm getting graded...

so, yeah. didn't want to have to, but my dad brought it up the other day and I honestly felt so much less stressed just imagining not having this class, so...I'm still gonna read the books tho, and write meta probably. like the thing I was originally working on about toxic masculinity in Othello.

I'm not entirely sure if they'll do the next level of the french class in the spring semester (or at least, that my *awesome* professor will be teaching it *sad face*) but I think planning to take it is the best idea...i don't know if taking two classes is a good idea, if I should find one that's just...less intensive than LIT? I guess?

idek right now. I just wanted to put this out there. *returns to french homework*

it sounds like you made the right decision, you shouldn't feel so stressed by a class.
French is a beautiful but complicated language, I took French for many years, but never quite got the hang of it and by now I've forgotten as good as everything.

Thanks for the vote of confidence :D

I took French in high school and still remember some of it, but I never got as good at it as Spanish, which was why I decided to take it in college. It's going relatively well I think, even though my brain is still going "oh a foreign language? must be Spanish, obviously" and making me think the wrong words sometimes...

:) well it seems you have a thing for languages so I'm pretty sure French will work for you just as fine as Spanish rather sooner than later. I like it that you didn't take the easier road by picking the language you were better at.

Thanks! It's coming along, so far, even though some of it is more difficult. Thanks for the vote of confidence :D
