Because I Can LOL

As of this afternoon, I’m currently doing work in two graduate departments. I was accepted into the doctoral certificate program in Medieval Studies, concentration Old Norse Studies. 🙂  So as I”m prepping for my comprehensive exams in Latin and Greek, Oral examinations in Classics, two special topic exams, and a German exam as well as prepping my dissertation, I’m going to be doing medieval studies course work, learning Old Norse, and prepping for two exams there as well. Wooo. I’m very excited about this.

  1. You’re a madwoman! Mad, mad I tells ya! 😉

    I tried doing Latin, Greek, and Hebrew during my M.A. after a year of just Latin and a short summer session of Greek. I lasted about two weeks. I also tried to do Old Norse while doing Old & Middle Irish and Middle Welsh. That lasted about one week. Still, I have all the books, so I could work on them at some stage in the future, when there is time (which there rarely is!)…

  2. My mind & heart jumped for joy when i read “concentration Old Norse Studies” Yes Yes a thousand times Yes!!!! As one who follows this path with absolute love in my heart for these Gods, dealing with the scarcity of non-biased information on them & this culture is heart wrenching at times. Wow what a task, where do i send the cases of energy bars for you?
