Survery of Literary Criticism

Thursday, December 09, 2004

The last day, yeah! and boo-hoo.....

Today's class was the last one of the semester. No more 8:00 literary criticism for us. I am definitely looking forward to sleeping in! But I actually enjoyed this class, even though it was so early. And it's certainly been interesting, as Dr. Sexson pointed out. Especially lately.

I was very happy to see Cindy in class this morning. I respect Zach for making his statement to the class and taking for responsibility, not hiding behind anyone else. Personally, I didn't ever think to take it out on Dr. Sexson - we're all adults and should be able to take credit or criticism for our own actions. Dr. Sexson is like the sales-person who bears the brunt of a customer's anger or joy - he didn't really make the garment, he just passes it on from the maker to the taker. So it is with literary criticism, past critics have given their opinions and Dr. Sexson delivers them to us.

But enough with the analogy (probably the only one I've had all semester!). At the end of any text there should be credits rolled. The following are mine:

I'd like to thank Dr. Sexson for a great class. I certainly learned more than I probably wanted to - a feat that doesn't happen in every university class, even though it should. Previous to this semester, I told people that I was thinking of getting an English minor, but I felt like a fraud because I didn't really KNOW about the major authors, works, movements, etc. Now I feel much better equipped to discuss literature because I have a solid background in some of the staple critics and authors. Thank you for your dedication to teaching, learning, and sharing. I wish you the best in coming years, Dr. Sexson.

Big compliments go out to my classmates. Your thirst for knowledge and insatiable questions enhanced the material and the presentations. Everyone seemed to put lots of effort into the assignments, at least superficially (but that's all that matters, right JR?). I admire every one of you, especially the people that I know are not comfortable with public speaking. You all brought something to share with our class, and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Huge thank yous for my group - the amazing, outstanding Group 3! Brian, Nikole, Danny, and Lisa - I never dreamed that I would like group work! But you guys made it fun, funny, productive, and easy. If it's true that a group is only as good as its individuals - I'm sorry I weighed y'all down! Thanks and good luck in the future!

The authors that we studied also deserve a thank you, even if they can't hear it. What better legacy could a person leave than educational material for the next generations? I hope that those deceased are looking at us from the after life and realize the importance of their contributions. Whether I agree with each of them or not, they all believed in themselves and their work, which is admirable to me.

I'd also like to thank the academy, and my parents, and my fans.............and anyone who's still reading! Ta ta for now!!

    Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
    Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
    Watch this One to Trade!

    IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

    IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
    stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

    InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
    David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
    board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
    eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
    Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

    During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
    efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
    Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
    the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
    awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
    the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

    Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
    widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
    affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
    Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
    Finance License.

    Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
    with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
    to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
    This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

    With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
    repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
    is ready to take their business to the next level.


    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
    That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
    Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
    GO IFLH!
