One of the great, shining lights is what I'm teaching right now. Grading, I could throw out the window, but the teaching still drives me. In World Lit. we've been reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. I don't know if it's the stress that's gotten to me at the end of this past term, but I've been a bit obsessed with both the novel and play and can't get them out of my head! The timing couldn't be better with PBS showing Les Miserables: The 25th Anniversary Concert. Between teaching it in class, watching clips from the movie, and then watching the PBS special, I've had Les Mis on the brain so much that I'm constantly humming the tunes! In fact, as I locked myself inside this weekend, I watched the PBS special again--twice.
I think that I'll be back to myself soon, relatively speaking! Until then, I'll keep reveling in Les Mis. :) Here are my favorite clips from the encore. If you haven't seen it, I can't recommend it enough!
