Method in my madness

Obviously I need to write more essays in which I don't understand the question, because I just got back the one I was so freaked out about, and I ended up with 84%.  Weird as ...

I'm quietly enjoying this subject, although I'm still attempting to wrap my mind around the process, and meaning, of adaptation.  What makes a successful adaptation - is it faithfulness to the original text, or something more; can you make a successful adaptation by completely changing the cardinal functions (the main aspects of the narrative/plot); is it only successful if it is seen as a new text, rather than a secondary text, in comparison to the original; why do an adapation at all?  Hopefully I'll have the answers to all this (and more!) when I go to write the final essay for this subject (which will be my final, final, final essay for my BA).

Now back to the mundanity of domestic life.

You da man!

And yes, it is easier to write about something you don't really understand. I did a fabbo presentation today on something I don't understand at all, as compared to falling over myself when I have too much information and not enough time to impart it all. Go figure.

One word: 'honours'.
Even when I'm floundering, I can make it to the surface!!!

Yes, yes, Honours. I'm going to talk to the Honours Co-ordinator during reading week (week after Easter break), and look at my options. Stop nagging, Mum!!!
Just a quick note to say that I've got the delivery notice of the first package you sent me. Thanks!!

Will pick that up together with the rest. ::bounces::

Wow, 84%!!
As my uni days are over for the week, I will make the time to copy the first half of S1 tomorrow morning, and get it in the mail to you.

84% - I was flabbergasted!
I'm glad someone understands - I though I had completely stuffed it up, but then again, I'm probably my harshest critic!
Oh, it is weird but I SO get where you're coming from. Some of MY best essays at uni are on topics I have no idea about. So you're not alone!
