I know there were only three of us writing Ian Cameron's deferred shakespeare exam but by any chance were any of you (lj people) there? if so, have you received your marks yet?

my status as of know is "pending" because of this grade, and i just hope this doesn't interfere with my registration.

Apr. 18th, 2006 @ 03:48 pm Books For Sale
Hey everyone. It's me again and I've more books for you to snatch up. These things are at bargain prices and generally in good condition. I've added the new books to the bottom of the old book list (removing those that have been sold). Everyone who made claims but failed to e-mail me have lost their claims and will have to make them once again. YOU must e-mail me at rintaran@gmail.com to make arrangements to purchase the books. LJ-post claims will not be considered.

I've provided all sorts of info on each book, including how much I payed for it. All prices are OBO. I can easily meet anyone at Carleton University or at my place (Prince of Wales/Meadowlands) for sales. For sales over $20 in total, I can probably go as far as Billings Bridge or Rideau Centre. Many of these books are from University English
Courses.

Cross-posted to cuenglish , carletonu, and ottawaforsale. Sorry for any duplication.

Remember E-MAIL to make arrangements. Nothing else will be counted. I hate to do it that way, but I put books aside last time as claimed and then never got e-mails for arrangements.

Which teachers should I avoid for...

ENG 2300 Brit Lit I
ENG 2802 - Canadian Lit
and
ENG 2006 - Children's Lit

I'm not really sure where to look (aside from ratemyprof.com, which isn't very helpful 90% of the time)

Any recommendations/words of warning are appreciated :)

Hey everyone , I never post on livejournal but I used to run a writer's group (with a friend) called the alternative authors consortium. I took it down about 2 years ago and sadly i hadn't done anything to bring it back to life. Now it's back but in different terms it's now called the House of Lawful Green Consortium. It's basically just a forum for people to post alternative writing . I know ottawa is full of great writers so now it's time to show your stuff. I hope all of you will find this a great place to put your work and find other individuals who are like minded in poetry and prose. you can log onto the site through www.lawfulgreen.com. Thanks to all who visit and seasons greetings. It's new so bear with me as i get everything set up. Plus my grammar is horrible so anybody who wants to nit and pick are free to do so. I need help without my friend who used to run it with me i am at a huge loss because she was an excellent source of help

Hey it seems that Prof Beecher is no longer teaching British Literature this year...good stuff! I dropped his class last year because I couldn't stand it. But anyway, yes, great news since eventually I plan on coming back to Carleton for a bit(if only just to retain the lovely tax benefits students get). To finish my degree I would need British Literature.
