Wow! It's been a while!


I haven't been on here much lately. School is keeping me busy. It's a funny thing to say since I am only in 1 class per semester, but graduate school is a time-consuming aspect of life. I have been doing so much research that I feel my head is going to explode. So, I took a short trip to the middle of the country - Lincoln, Nebraska. Note to self - Never take a trip outside of central Florida in the winter again - unless it is to someplace warmer, lol. Anyway, I hoped to clear my head a little and get refocused on my term paper. Topic: The Historical Value of The Arabian Nights. Research done: very little previous research to peruse. Result: NEED NEW TOPIC! I am hoping to refocus my topic as somewhat of a biography of Harun al-Rashid and incorporate the "folkloric" Harun in my writing. Now, how will my professor take this as we are halfway through the semester. Ugh!


I will keep you informed...
