The big news is that I registered for next semester's classes on Monday (last Monday, since this is a day late). They had every course I needed to take, including one I was hoping would be available. As a bonus, a professor I really like this semester is teaching it. There were also two courses which caught my eye: Science Fiction and a seminar on Tolkien. It turned out I couldn't take the former because one of my required courses is in the same time slot. I ended up signing up for five courses because I couldn't decide between two others (my two favorite professors were teaching them). If this semester kicks my <ahem> too badly I'll probably drop one.
