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.
Moved to Portugal end of September 2013. Also lived in Australia, Scotland, and the USA. Native English speaker, learning Portuguese. Apologies to the locals for my terrible pronunciation!
