I have class.

Here is the list of courses I'm taking.

-Intro to Colloquial Arabic
-Art and Architecture of Cairo (we go on a lot of field trips to Islamic monuments and buildings)
-Modern Movements in Islam (turns out you need a solid background in Islamic history and theology for this class, neither of which I possess)
-Israeli Politics and Society (taught by an Egyptian professor...)
-Mediterranean Legends (includes Greek, Mesopotamian, Ancient Egyptian and Roman mythology)

Since my commute is 2-3 hours a day, I worked very hard to have only four days of class a week, which limited my options, but so far I'm quite pleased with my schedule.


  1. The Islam and Israel classes will be amazing, I'm sure. Does a 3 hour commute mean you have to get up at 4am? That would be pretty absurd, except maybe if it's really hot there 4am isn't such a bad time to be awake?

    Also this is my favorite post title so far.

  2. No, my commute is 1 1/2 hours each way, but thankfully I scheduled my classes so I don't have to leave the apartment before 11. But two days a week I don't get back until 9:30 pm.

  3. You, Anna, have so much class.
