School is back in swing. Actually, it has been for awhile. That’s one of the main reasons you haven’t heard form me on here for quite some time. I feel like I’m just barely getting into a rhythm for this semester. All that I know is that the weather is changing (and allergies are starting). This probably means that sooner or later you’ll be seeing my yearly fall post. But I’m not going to force it. I just think it’ll probably happen as always.
But all of that isn’t the reason I’m writing this post. I’m writing this post to tell you all about another blog project I’m working on. It’s actually an assignment for one of my classes. I’m currently in a class called Literature and Belief. In this class we are focusing on mythology and the ways that it has expressed and shaped the beliefs of people through the course of history. We’re going all the way from reading Theogony (the Greek creation stories by Hesiod) to reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Needless to say, we’re covering a lot this semester.
The project that I am doing is a blog where I will discuss the things we are learning in this class. I will explore the meaning of myth and search for modern day myths and how they shape us. I could write so much more here about what the blog will be, but that’s what the blog is for. You can start by reading the about section. I hope to see you there.
