Random thoughts about this semester

  1. In this, my sixth semester, I have my third and fourth classes taught by female professors.
  2. I am taking a class on access to higher ed and another on stratification. Of course, they are delimited differently, but there is a great deal of overlap. Still, the approaches of the two courses are entirely different - the first has a policy orientation, the second a conceptual orientation. What is taken for granted varies wildly.
  3. My classes are requiring a lot of small writing assignments this semester.
  4. Best part: Three papers, but no exams.
  5. I had to buy 15 books.
