My poem "Star-Crossed" was critiqued today in my writing workshop.  Apparently everyone really liked it.  It received praise as a "masterpiece" and "perfect."  There were some minor things, so I will likely ditch the enjambment in the first stanza, but otherwise, I don't think it will change much in revision.  There was some debate on exactly how heavy-handed I should be with particular lines, that maybe I can condense a bit, but I am skeptical.  We'll see how I feel in a week or so, when I start my revisions and I've had some time away from it.

Don't forget that you can vote for Jacquelyn every day.  So help us get her through her final semester of grad school without monetary stress hovering over us.  Help us retire her student loan debt.  Go vote, people!  It takes two seconds, literally.  Also, feel free to share that link.  Get your friends and relatives and relatives of friends and relatives of relatives to vote.

I also got an AB on my second Shakespeare exam.  I am no longer worried about that class.  I am confident enough that I'll pull off an AB in that class.  If I am lucky, I will pull off an AB in French, but it will be really, really close.  I'll likely be right on the line between an AB and a B, so there's that.  I think I'll get an A in creative writing.  I put in a lot of effort in that class, do all the assignments, all the readings, contribute and whatnot a lot, so I don't see why I wouldn't.  My only major worry is that the heck I'm going to get in my anthro class.  That's so up in the air.  It may very well be my first grade below an AB in my collegiate history.  I know, first-world problem, but there you have it.

Go vote for Jacquelyn!
