feuervogel: (shiiiiiiiiiit!)
I got the syllabus for the literature seminar today.

I'm going to fail.

We have to read in their entirety 6 books, totalling 1660 pages, plus probably 500 more pages of excerpts and secondary literature. Here is the info from the syllabus:

Course Requirements
 Regular attendance
 Participation and careful preparation of all readings: Complete all of the readings on time
and come to class prepared, with questions, etc.
 Class presentations: Give a presentation on one primary text and author.
 Three response papers in German, the papers should be included a discussion of interesting
questions and present a first interpretation.
 Final research paper of 10-12 pages in English or German

Grade:
Response papers 20%
Class presentations 10%
Class participation (attendance, preparation) 30%
Final paper 40%

I will get at best a B- in this class. Because I can't read 2000 pages for one class, and I can't convincingly bullshit my way through something I've read a third of (which is apparently a thing you learn to do as a literature major??? I studied chemistry, y'all). In literature seminar last semester, we had to write comments on the course discussion forum about the texts, just a few sentences minimum, and I struggled to get a paragraph, so SURE YEAH 3 response papers will be g r e a t. And I'll totally be able to participate in class.

I am going to leave that class in tears every fucking week it'll be great.

OH AND FUN TIMES??? I've gotten 2 of the books for the class and neither of them is the first 2 books we need to read (by Feb 2 and 9). The library may have them but not 7 copies of it (because I doubt I'm the only person who hasn't received their books yet).

So I can't even get started on the 400 pages I need to read by Feb 9 because the books aren't here yet. Y a A A a A a Y
