So.. I’m going to do an oral exam in English literature and culture. Topic: The Victorian Age – The age of duality.
So I’ll go play with my new friends; Oscar Wilde, R.L. Stevenson and Queen Victoria.. Yes. They’re actually pretty cool, and did some awesome stuff during their lifetime. And the period’s interesting too, in it’s own literature-historical-way.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light, it was the season of darkness,
it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities (1859).
So I think this weekend won’t be that bad. It could’ve been worse. After all, I really like English.
And Monday, at approximately ten o’clock, it’s all over.
