Facing My Last Semester at Georgetown
|Georgetown blanketed in|
morning fog some days ago
Considering the challenge ahead, I really feel bad for my compatriot thesis-writers-in-arms who may be taking a full load of five courses this semester, our final semester at Georgetown (or at least the final undergraduate one). As for me, how many courses am I taking? Two.

So, what are my two classes? The first of course is my thesis seminar, part two of what I took last semester. It only has half as many students as the first iteration, though, since we split into two groups to better facilitate helping each other as we write. (This was Georgetown's largest cadre ever of students wanting to write history honors theses.) The second course is called French Speaking Africa: Languages, Literature and Culture, and it's from a professor I took last spring as well, a course I mentioned here which also produced my most popular blogpost ever, an assignment I did on the novel L'Aventure ambiguë. Perhaps if I post one of my assignments from this current course, that will become a search engine hit success story as well. For the most part, I'm taking this course on Africa (taught in French) because I know it will be fun and interesting. It may have nothing to do with my thesis, but I know I will be spending enough time thinking about my thesis as it is.
Speaking of which, I think it's time I go back to writing my thesis. Bye for now!
