Second semester of my junior year of college undergrad is now wrapping up. In particular, my time in African-American Literature II is one project and a final away from being a happy memory. That class has been a blessing and a curse -a blessing more than a curse. In short, it was a blessing because of all the great pieces of literature I was exposed to in the class and the fantastic discussions that were sure to follow. The coursework and quizzes/exams were extremely thorough and taxing, however, and herein lay the ‘curse’. As a nursing major (easily the toughest major at my university, Oakwood University) and a Resident Assistant at the male freshmen dorm, my time was at a premium this semester and the normally difficult-but-doable workload of this class tested my time management abilities. Overall however, I really liked the class. These next few blogs will be about my class and the different experiences I had and some of my favorite moments/subjects in the class.
