Well folks, what have I done this week you want to know? Well get
ready cause it’s exciting, really exciting. I have . . . been
writing my assessed essays! Alright! This actually is a big deal,
though, since the grade on each essay serves as
grade for that entire class. They don’t take into account
class participation or presentations. I keep telling myself that
if I get these essays done this week, then maybe next week I can
go to Ireland. Now how’s that for incentive?
While I’m sure you’re all dying to hear about my views
on the punisher and the punished in Lanval, The Tale
of Florent, and The Wife of Bath’s Tale, I’m
sorry to say that I don’t think I will be
discussing this in today’s travel journal. Please try to refrain
from weeping. What I thought I would relay to you, however, is a
brief summary of what I have learned from my stay in the UK up till
1. Always look
both ways when crossing a street, even if it is a one-way street.
In fact, you should especially look both ways when crossing a one-way
street. Brits think it’s a jolly good thing to drive however,
and wherever, they see fit. Strangely, though, I have yet to see
will kill you if you give them a chance. By “giving them a
chance” I mean, if you are walking in a designated bike path,
street, sidewalk, grassy knoll, the hall in your dorm, etc.
