Yes indeed. Although yesterday marked the beginning of what is going to be my hardest semester before finally getting my degree, it is the home stretch. It's exciting to finally be marketable after years of love, research, devotion, and dedication, to German and Russian. The good Lord willing, I'll begin my teaching apprenticeship, specialising in German and Russian language and literature, and English as a foreign language. I am also considering an all encompassing certificate in elementary school history, but that's another prospect for another time! The first draft of my thesis is now finished, with over 100 hours of Nazi cimena watched, critiqued, and analysed! If you're bored and wanting a quintessential example of what exactly Nazi cinema is, or want to practice your German listening comprehension, I suggest you check out this film: [link] Hitlerjunge Quex. My faculty advisor and I are working on its publication! A historical film institute in Berlin is interested in my work! And if I get published, I'm invited to the facility to take part in a reception!
Today is also my grandmother's birthday! She's 83 years old with quite a legacy behind her. She took part in desegregating her university in the late 1950s, and that's just the tip of her amazing iceberg of accomplishments.
All in all, it's a good day, and a fresh start, and good move into the new house. Lloyd and I are takin care of lots of shit, and in a month, I'll be 21! We're probably gonna celebrate by goin to the casino and blowing money we don't have. Life's good. :>
