I dumped Greek! I dumped Greek! I dumped Greek!
I finally realized that I don't like Greek. And all it took was 2 1/2 years. Specifically, a semester of Sophocles. I mean, seriously, how many participles does one language need?!?
Instead, I am taking Medieval Latin. And I love it! I can actually read it! As in pick it up and read it. I don't have to check a dictionary for every other word, I have consulted a grammar text maybe three times in the last week, and I almost never have to reference a translation. *bouncey* I've read a Roman Mass, and the Nicene Creed, and Sulpicius Severus, and St Augustine! And granted, "genitum non factum" confused me for a long time, but that had more to do with my weak grasp of medieval theology than my understanding of the Latin.
And ooo, idea for a St. Augustine icon! Yay! I love my major!
