First Entry

Well, this is my first "blogging experience"...I'm sure I'll find a way to foul this up. Anyway, we're supposed to discuss the readings that were due for class today.
I found both readings to be a little dry and I really wasn't interested in either of them. I've had to read "The Raven" for a few other classes, so it seemed a little old hat to me; on the other hand, this was my first "Mr. Mel" experience and I wasn't impressed with "Bartleby, the Scrivener." Maybe I missed something or my mind is just not developed enough for the classics...whatever the reason, I had to force myself to finish. On a positive note, I found Melville's style of writing elegant and I did enjoy the language, even though I didn't care for what the language was telling me.

RIGHT ON KATIE!!! For once in my life I actually witnessed that you DIDN'T LIKE what we had to read, and I know how you are with your books and reading. I, too, found both of these readings to be surpremely boring and I apologize to myself for wasting 23 pages of my life. :-P

And "foul this up" - - that made me Laugh Out Loud. ;) Just be cool like whip with HTML and you won't foul this up at all. :D
