Update

I'm reading this book for my Straight: Constructing Heterosexuality class called The Invention of Heterosexuality and according to it, "the earliest-known use of the word heterosexual in the United States occurs in an article by Dr. James G. Kiernan, published in a Chicago medical journal in May 1892 ... The hetero in these heterosexuals referred not to their interest in a different sex, but to their desire for two different sexes." (Katz, 19-20)

All my classes are really awesome. I'm also taking CRWR410: The New York Painter's and Poet's Society, Romantic Ecstasy (with Daniel Kiefer - also, unplanned, I'm taking two courses in poetry and painting, and RE also deals with philosophy and music, so it will be a very artistic semester, hopefully!) I am planning to drop Saints, Sects, and Society (a sociology course about religion in society) in order to take Native American Religions and World Views. I am very excited about the latter class; I am really interested in Native American Studies, and the fact that a chair was just endowed and he's teaching classes ...! So exciting!

I also finished my graduation contract the other day (or at least, a draft that I'm willing to show people) which is ALSO very exciting. I finally sat down and just did it, which was exactly what needed to happen. I'll be talking to my advisors, editing, and hopefully going to committee soon, so think good thoughts!
