I'm taking over the blog today for a short update - and to apologize in advance on behalf of the boys. A new semester has started and I'm sure I'll be hogging the computer from time to time making it hard for them to post and read and comment.
Some of you asked about my subjects etc, so I thought I'd post it all on here. I'm taking 4 courses this semester - at least I'll try to. (Normal progression is 3 courses/semester) I'll be taking two English courses and two in Biology - American litterature, phonetics, biochemistry and physiology (animals and plants). The biochemistry will be a major challenge since I don't really have all the recommended courses to take it. But hopefully I'll manage.
Because English and Biology is not your average combo (I'll end up with a masters degree in biology and education that will qualify me to teach similar to high school levels) there are noe guarantees that lectures and/or exam dates will not crash and so last semester (and hopefully this one) I've taken an extra course so as to be a bit ahead. Then I shouldn't be at risk of having everything delayed because the last few courses I have to take all collide.
Now I'm all ready for my first group in phonetics - all groups except one is for RP (Recieved pronunciation) but I think it won't be too big a deal that my accent isn't British of any kind. ;)
PS: If I discover I'm really in over my head I have the option of dropping a class. But, fingers crossed, it'll all work out.
