Shakespeare.  I have the opportunity to bask in the awesomeness that is Shakespeare this semester.  My two English courses are both Renaissance Lit, one of which is strictly Shakespeare, and the other is a period lit class, composed mainly of plays like Titus Andronicus (Shakespeare) etc.

In the former class, we are currently covering A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Personally, I’ve never read the play previously, however, I’ve heard much about it.  Most people consider it one of the best comedies that Shakespeare has written, next to those like Much Ado About Nothing.  We’ve only had one class on it, and I’m pretty stoked for the rest of the semester.  At one point we’ll get to form groups and produce a scene from one of the plays that we’ll be covering.  I have so many ideas swirling around my head that I’m pretty stoked. LOL.  It also helps that my prof is fairly awesome, she knows how to manage the class and has so many insights and ideas on how to improve it.  Also, he specialty happens to be Shakespeare, so it’s not like past classes that I’ve had with other profs who were learning along with the rest of the students.  Anyway, I’m looking forward to every class which is new.  So boo ya!
