I'M DONE!!! ....basically

As some of you know, my last paper for the term was due on Friday. I also had my last tutorial that day. And on Monday, my last seminar is on a book that I have already read and written a paper on. All of this means that, as of Thursday, I have been completely done with all the work I have to do this fall! To all of you in universities back in the US who still have finals, I am so sorry, and I offer you my sincerest sympathy.

As far as classes, I have one seminar left, on Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It's a really good book, so if you like The Great Gatsby or just have any interest in Fitzgerald or the 20s, I highly recommend it. I also have a couple of lectures, but that is not a big deal as there's no preparation to do for lectures. So now, I have two weeks to just hang out in London! First up on the list of things to do- buy Christmas presents.

I also need to stop by a few more museums and possibly some monuments, and hang out with my friends here, especially the ones who are leaving in December.

Well, that's it for this post. I just wanted to share my excitement at being finished :) In case you're interested, I'm listing the topics of the papers that I had to write this term. Yes, there were only four.

1. Chaucer: Whether The Book of the Duchess a secular or spiritual work.
2. Modern English Language: Subtle differences in meanings and usage of modal verbs.
3. Moderns I: The use of dialogue in the works of Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
4. London in Literature: The way in which Oscar Wilde used fashion and clothing to reveal character.

Next term I'll have another four papers to write and, again, I need to come up with my own topics. I'll be taking the same classes, so if anyone has ideas for subjects that sound interesting, PLEASE let me know. I would definitely appreciate help in choosing essay topics. First up, my Chaucer paper on The Canterbury Tales.

Well, that's it for now. Time to eat lunch and go Christmas shopping.
Love,
Emily
