Come on now, it's all about the weekly basis of acknowledgement ;D
American writers... hmm, I'll ask my friend who studies English and American Literature, she might have some insight! I've read a few classics, like Tolkien and Austen, but I can't say I read enough books to make a judgement about UK vs US authors. I read Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain though, that was pretty good! Most of the books I read are history books.... like, 8 of those every week. X_x
Oh my, you have such interesting topics! I wish I could choose my studies on that sort of basis. Guantanamo Bay is a decent choice too, it's been in the news again recently so I guess you won't be short of material. Oh yeah, serebii's debate forum might be handy too. I occasionally participate there, but it takes hours to read posts, formulate ideas and post back lucidly, so I avoid it while I'm busy.
I was the last in my family to go too! My bros and sister are all way older than me. I'm not sure whether college in general is hard; most people I know at college have really enjoyed it and say it's manageable. I went to one of the 2 toughest colleges in the UK, so I have found it really hard. But that's what I signed up for
Still, on the whole I'd say it's not a big step academically; it feels trickier because you have to balance work with all the jobs that come with being independent.
If I get interested in accounting I'll stick with it... the alternative is to get a business-related job or another master's degree afterwards.
I used to play some newb teams... the most obvious ones were those who had strong pokemon, used in a stupid way. For example, aGyarados using only special attacks. *facepalm*
Still sound like silly school rules. At least you don't have a school uniform. We did...
Oh and I'm good! Exams in less than a month, but also finished in less than a month. I wish it could be a month in the future....oh well, I'll be patient
