There is a strand of blue yarn, unwound from one of those first knit swatches, strung across a wall in my room. From it, by paper clips, hang in vertical uniformity 3×5 index cards inscribed with dates and events from the Texas revolution. Our first exam is next Thursday and will cover at least the first four or five chapters of the text (creatively titled “The History of Texas”). I would like to make a good grade; testing makes me nervous, and the word “essay” makes me almost quake in my boots. Or cute flats, rather. I’m not exactly sure why– I can be wordy enough when I want to be. However: first college course, first exam.
I’ll keep you posted.
