Back from a late-night dinner with Nancy, on the sidewalk by Bin 941. Reminds me why I live in the City of Vancouver — so I can eat any time of the day or night, even if I have to sip my Wolf Blass merlot out of a mug while telling a bum to bugger off and no, I don’t want to give him change.
I’ve signed up for two courses in September thus far, one is: Philosophy 231: The Meaning of Life
How can you pass up a course like that?? I am happy to read the course consists of an “early quiz”, then 3 short papers worth 20% each, and a final exam worth 30%. I’m so glad to be back in paper territory… I’m sick of exams. I had three exams in LING 100 — the last one was on Tuesday, and no papers. I also had 3 exams for Archaeology 200, which was also a nightmare.
The second class I’m taking so far is the one I started to take this term but had to withdraw from: Linguistics 110: The Wonder of Words, which is basically about how words have changed over time. I think it will be much better this time around.
