Five-Hundred Word Challenge 356: Egyptian History today

Well, I’m back at uni although I never really left.

Today is the day that I start the learning of Egyptian history.

I think that sit may be interesting. PI don’t really know right now. What I do know is that it is a course that will involve a lot of writing and in thew writing down of  things there will be learning and there will be interpretation.

How do I know this?

I don’t know.

I don’t feel as though I’ve had much of a break, but that is  probably due to my keeping myself busy.

That is what I’d like to believe, so that is what I will tell my self.

It helps make the accepting of whatever it is that I’m trying to accept easier to accept instead of harder to accept.

What am I going on about?

Anyway, so I’m sitting here, trying to kill some time before I grab a bite to eat and head off to the first lecture of the first day of this course held over summer.

Well, six days of summer.

It seems like it will be very intense, but right now I do not know if that will be the case.

It is six full days, then an exam worth half the course followed by a reflective essay that is worth the other half.

In other words, I need to make sure that I do really well, for there is a chance that I will not, for I am a lazy student a good chunk of the time who ends up focusing on thew things that I should not focus on and then miss the things that would be easier for me to study.

That is what sounds good, anyway.

So I’m sitting here, trying to think of things to write when what I really should be doing is making my way down to the lecture theatre and getting food, relaxing before I go in and begin the process of learning the things about Egypt and its history.

I do wonder as to what I will learn.

From what I’ve gleaned over, one of the readings is The Epic of Gilgamesh, which may have to do with the course also covering a bit of the Mediterranean (I think). Considering that that particular epic is something that I’ve enjoyed reading and will happily read again. I’m looking forward to it being part of the course.

Of course I am looking forward to it being part of the course.

Of course I am now just wasting both your and my time, so maybe I should find a witty way to end this before I run  off to wherever it is that I need to be.

Oh, that’s right. It is the main lecture theatre. I think.

Or do I think?

No, we’re not going down that path today.

Well, here we go into something new and exciting with all the calm that would be required for someone who is feeling fairly calm.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:00:12

Well, I think I got what I wanted to say across.

I think.
