...and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold.
Anyway, it's been a trying week for Glaukopis, and I've just learned that I shall be plugging away at more Latin vocabulary while intensely studying Classical Greek history in the next three weeks. I'm torn between being relieved that someone finally believes me when I say that my Latin vocab is weak and being annoyed that I've shown weakness on an examination. There are days when I wonder why I do this to myself. But then I remember that I've started a blog where my ENTIRE identification is being a Classics major--and that isn't so far off from the truth. There will always be pitfalls along the way, and that is my soap-box schpiel to any aspiring Classics majors out there.
To soothe myself, I went out with a friend and bought even MORE used books. I've just got to love a small bookstore owner (or at least, I think he was the owner) who will have a nice conversation with me about the definition of "classic."
