Hi, Sarah! I am a Sara too, only H-less. Your blog is fun! Keep up the great work!
Okay! And I will check out your blog
Sarah! Because I love you and your blog I nominated you for the versatile blogger award. Check it out! http://survivinginitaly.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/this-nomination-is-just-the-beginning-of-world-domination-p-s-thank-you/
If by “versatile” you mean “all but absent.” You are a much more dedicated blogger, and I admire that. You are the best cousin ever. I will get right on it, ma’am. Love all the way from Italy to Japan and back
I am so glad that someone gets me! “Furthermore, by placing a comma–rather than a period–here, Famous Poet is imploring us to pause, but not to stop…” LOL! I am thinking about majoring in English. I love finding meaning in the things I read, but I despise over-analyzing things like “the Author’s Syntactical Structure in line 14.” Do you have any advice?
P.S. Your blog is absolutely amazing!
I highly recommend doing a Comparative Literature degree, as opposed to English. It’s what I wish I’d done. Often classes will use literature from different time periods, countries, etc. structured around a general theme like “Gender and Identity in Asian Literature,” etc. So you get to find meaning in what you read, but it’s a deeper meaning, with broader ideas, and less critical analysis. Hope that helps. Thank you for reading!
