Starting Fresh

This past week was the beginning of classes. 
I'm looking forward to my schedule for Spring,
I have 2 Women's Studies classes,
(Women's History & Black Feminism)
Which I will hope will open my mind 
and stretch my comfort zone.
Haa, the women's "movement"
In relation to Women's Studies, 
I was surprised to find out that a paper I wrote was accepted to 
SEWSA 2012 the SouthEastern Women's Studies Association conference.
It blows my mind that I was selected to present here..
In front of people who study and make a living off of Women's & Gender studies.
I'm honored and impatiently awaiting my departure to the wonderful Washington DC.
More to come about my paper topic 
(Which appeals to a large part of women, I hope)

I'm also taking two International Affairs classes
East Asian Political Systems
(China, Japan, Korea mainly)

and drum roll please
A practicum called Methods and Issues in Security Studies
Basically, I'm learning research methods so next fall
I get to work with the Center for International Trade and Security.
Needless to say, I'm very excited. 

It's going to be an interesting, yet hard semester
and I'm looking forward to every minute of it!
