I may or may not be a little bit in love with my english teacher.

I almost cried tears of joy when I saw the course outline.

We watched the episode HUSH of Buffy last week. When Willow and Tara were on screen she was all ”oh they’re totally going to be girlfriends later. Young love, it’s so cute.”

Next we are doing feminist retellings of fairy tales, Grim, perversion in retelling, and a lot of others amazing stuff. And we are going to watch ONCE UPON A TIME. I honestly don’t know how I got so lucky, I don’t remember a time when I was so excited to go to class. I can’t wait to be thursday, and I don’t even care anymore that I’m almost the only one talking in class.

Bonus: first semester we did a writing workshop and one time I wrote a story about a Zombie Apocalypse. She asked me if I watched The Walking Dead, and then told me she loved the show! Also she make little smileys on our copy when she like what we write.

If only all of our teachers could be that encouraging and interesting. -sigh-
