Proud Mumma!

Our son Jonathan is entering his second year at the University of Victoria this fall. He got a letter today inviting him into the Honours English program! The classes are limited to fifteen students so it's quite an honour.

Congrats to you and your dear son! What do the Honours English people do that the non-Honours English people don't get to do?

Congratulations! Hey, Susan, you're really rolling with this blog. It's like you've been doing it for ages!

Thank you, Debra and Douglas. I'm quite thrilled for him although it seems like quite a ponderous workload. It sounds like they have requirements one might more likely expect of a post-graduate student. For me the main attraction is the promise that they will work with 'individual faculty members and in small groups'. Jon's always found English a cakewalk and this is going to be more of a challenge. I just hope it doesn't put him off the subject for good!

Yes, Malcolm is an academic (science, not english), and the honours always seem, in the event, to be more jobs. The really top honours also involve you paying for them, I've noted.
But, being an academic is what "the school swot" grows up into. Poor but happy. (Academics remind me of small children playing with train sets, very happy and also often quite dirty -- but again that probably applies to science experiments as opposed to English).
