It's been one month since my last final, yet I am still not on "vacation." This summer I decided to take a summer intensive course and so, this has kept quite busy. It's pretty sad to have all of these plans for summer and see nearly none getting accomplished. I was being unrealistic, though, on thinking I would get to read, draw or spend more time with my family. In the bright side, I am enjoying the accumulation of new knowledge. The course that I am taking is a literature course with a focus on "different forms of captivation on the human spirit." On top of that I am reading books that, I believe, would have never chosen to pick up at a bookstore or online (not willingly). I'm reading prison books and I feel more well-rounded. It has also impacted my view on the use of power in our society and the way people, from the elderly to criminals to lesbians or homosexuals can get isolated in our society. And how horrible it is to isolate people!
Tomorrow I start the reading of a new book called "Night" by Elie Wiesel. It's about the Holocaust, it's suppose to be a memoir about the experiences in concentration camps. I'm am pretty excited to read a book in the Holocaust other than the Anne Frank book that I read when I was 15.
