Dear 2012…

I am not good at planning anything for longer than a week, so I’m not making any plans for 2012 except for being happy and reading a lot. But I do love lists, I really do. So, thinking about the “Months of…” to come and how I am getting into classics, probably due to the lack of literature lessons in school this year, these are some of my ideas.

  • March is Women’s History Month which combined with my love for Margaret Atwood, will probably end up in a special reading of some of her novels.
  • I will be taking a class on 19th century literature. so expect lots of poetry from that period. I am not a big fan of poetry but, if properly explained, I can get to like it.
  • I am also taking a class on 20th century English literature with the best professor ever so, I will probably get into 20th century works dealing or written by women. Also expects a lot of reflection posts!
  • I plan on keep blogging as much as I can and feel like it. But exam periods and boring subjects can prevent me from doing it. Anyway, I am always on Twitter if you need or want anything.
  • I am developing a special love for Southern literature, so I may buy some (or lots) of books by Southern women, history, suffragist, the civil war or even Gone with the Wind. I know, I have to read Gone with the Wind.

Southern author Eudora Welty

  1. I like your plan for “being happy” – something I think we could all use! It sounds like you have some good reading thoughts for the coming year, and some good classes to look forward to.

    Happy New Year!

  2. I think your plans sound fantastic and pretty long term, too. Looking forward to reading your posts. it’s going to be an interesting reading year.

  3. I think lots of people are showing some interest in poetry this year! I also plan to read a wee bit of it, though I’m not much of a poetry person. I’ll most likely be exploring the Romantic and Victorian poets, though. If I have any favourite poets, currently, they seem to be from those to era in English Lit!

    1. Well, I am not passionate about poetry but I’ll have to read it for my classes, so I plan on enjoying it as much as possible insteand of thinking how happier I’d be reading a novel.

  4. I love the “being happy” resolution. More of us should commit to that. Anyway, I have yet to read Gone With the Wind too, maybe we’ll be reading it together 🙂

Don't forget to share what you think!
