The Mad Scientist has started another semester...
A double major.
History & Religious Studies.
What? How did you go from Science to Religious Studies?
Well, since I'm an over achiever in oddball-dom I started this academic year at a private college in the middle! (I'm the only person with purple hair!) All the science classes were topped off before I could even suggest or think of continuing on in the science area. *sigh*
Yes, I was in a rather dismayed mood once I heard that.
But it allows me to go on in my original pursuit, history with an emphasis in war & torture/genocide.
A love of history and bloody battles comes from my father &
my tribes not so lovely history of tribal survival. :(
I do have all of BUT one upper level general ed requirement completed.
So, I'm over joyed that I get to hit the core classes this semester.
For History I'm taking:
Western Civilizations II -- A class that shoves 500 years of Euro history into a few hours!
Modern European History -- Perhaps I'll learn something about Europe today ;)
For Religious Studies I'm taking:
Women in the Bible -- Where there is too much sex talk! LOL!
Topics in the Bible -- I know Buddhism but not Christianity. 1st semester it is offered.
So, there are my classes. 4 credits a piece = 16 credits. 4 over full time :)
But I did some overlapping on my topics on purpose. I hope the new areas that I'm about to walk into will be pounded into my brain on just these specific topics. Just Europe & just the bible.
Yes, the syllabuses look like I will be crazy crazy busy.
Maybe I'll learn something I don't know.
Once I'm done with these classes I'll only have 16 more to go for my double major.
We will celebrate more then!
So, with this being said... take it easy one me. LOL!
I'll be around but not as much as before... I'll be skipping out on blog time so I can get some reading time in. I wont be participating in many extra posts but I hope to be giving you plenty of Steampunkery delights and book reviews.
Thanks for the support!
