The problem with writing reflections is that I get the song from Mulan stuck in my head which then leads to more Disney songs. Then finally leads to a huge train wreck of annoying Disney songs (in my mind of course). The second week into a semester is one of the best because you've had a week to get back in the flow of school and in your new classes you have actually began to do work (hopefully). Also a new semester means new beginnings yet you rarely realize that until the second week because you are mostly likely a sleepwalking zombie wishing it was still winter break. Like in LA we have started a new unit on tragic heroes which are always fun because you always know that the main character(s) are going end up dead/maimed/heartbroken so you have a happy ending to look forward to. If you didn't realize I was being sarcastic in the last sentence then you need to go out and find your sense of humor because it's probably lost, lonely and missing the warm recesses of your brain. Greek tragedies are cool because they are like a time capsule that captures the culture of the society and when you compare today's values and beliefs you can see that they really haven't changed over a thousand years or so. That can either be good or bad depending on how you look at it. All in all the week was good and I'm optimist that the next one will be even better. Oh and just in case you don't know what a train wreck of Disney songs sounds like I have included one for your listening pleasure.
