I took Swing lessons. I now know basic East Coast and basic Lindy Hop, plus a very tiny bit of Waltz. The next session starts on the 26th; I'd like to do basic Charleston. I'll be taking lessons with a girl from my Education Curriculum & Instruction class who's very tall (for a girl), which will be a nice change of pace for me.
I've also been listening to a lot (!!!) of ska music lately, especially Catch-22, Streetlight Manifesto, Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, Hippos, Less than Jake, Insyderz, Liberator, and Voodoo Glow Skulls, plus bits of Gadjits, Beat Soup, Furyus-George, Maroon Town, and Roland Alphonso (links to come in a later post dedicated to ska; there are a lot of free downloads out there). Ska rules.
I've also applied to grad school here at Tech. If it all goes through, I'll be doing dual enrollment next semester, finishing my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and starting my Master of Arts in Education Curriculum and Instruction (M.A.Ed), which would get me certified to teach social studies at the secondary school level. Thus, you'll have one more year of HokiePundit before I move away and either change my name or become an alumni version of myself. That last sentence was somewhere between redundant and nonsensical, so I'll let it stand in order to blend in with the rest of my posts.
And now: I need to finish reading Plato's Republic for my Political Theory midterm tomorrow.
