Default Why is Ghyle dancing?

I am dancing because I am another step closer to enrolling in the individual study unit at university.

First, I had to have at least 36 cp of units in English or related units--24 cp last year, 56 including this year, and another 16 after 1st semester next year. 24 cp at least Credit level; last year, 6 cp Credit, then 18 Distinction--easily done.

Then I needed to get a unit supervisor, which I just have learnt I now have, unless I find another better suited to the task, which may, or may not be, unlikely, given that not every academic specialises in Brennan!

Now, I need to check out the resources used. I will be pushing my concordance and my bibliography in the process, as well, which will be fun, no?

So: if you still wonder why I am dancing... I must sigh. *le sigh*!

Well to be honest I didn't understand it all... but if you're dancing

It all sounds overwhelming to me but if you want it bad enough I'm sure you can manage it. Keep us informed on the progress, it's fun to "know" someone who is on such an upward path!

It means I do a unit where I decide what to study, not a syllabus. It also means I get an excuse to write about my favourite poet as well. Not that I really need one, no?

Thank you for your conratulations; I feel extra happy knowing that people are happy at my expense.
