Exclamation points!!! Smiley faces :-) :-) :-)!
I have not yet asked about taking the final exam early. That final is on Thursday, so I'd best be arriving in Japan while the rest of the class is taking the test.
Presuming the final will work out, I am faced with a choice:
- Drop English Writing, taught by a woman whose organizational skills and ability to remain on topic long enough to answer a student's question* both horrify me; OR
- Drop Spanish, taught by a teacher I like, but late in the evenings.
I've got e-mail out to the Spanish teacher asking to switch to her afternoon section. If that is possible, there's no contest. I have attended exactly one English writing class and already I dread it.
* "How do you spell iambic pentameter?" This is not a long topic, folks.
