Beatleology 101

Standard

So there is this class at OU and the subject, believe it or not, is the Beatles.
Guess who gets to take the class?
Oh yeah, that’s right — I DO, baby!
I have known about the existence of said class for several years, ever since I started going to see 1964: the Tribute on their yearly visit to OU in the winter. But, being neither a current nor prospective student of the school, I had no expectations of ever being able to take the class.
Then, last week, I got the wild idea to ask the professor if I could simply sit in on the class without being an enrolled student. I got his name and email address from OU Information, emailed him, and damned if he didn’t say yes! He has been extremely kind and accommodating and I apparently did not frighten him with my enthusiasm, which is a plus.
The class is only held in the spring so I have a little while to wait, but that’s okay. I’m sure it will go by fast. Plus I sort of need to resolve the whole “no transportation” issue before I can worry about driving up to Norman and back a couple times a week. Probably a lot of people would not consider driving 140 miles, roundtrip, to take one class, but it’s worth it to me. I’d drive further than that! I don’t guess the class will be more than twice a week so that isn’t too much trouble. I figure I will go to class then get myself a bite to eat afterward and make each trip a nice little “me time” getaway. I have emailed the professor to ask if he knows which days the class will be held yet. I will go no matter when it takes place, but it would be totally serendipitous if it just happened to be on Tuesday/Thursday (the days when both kids will be in school all day). I’m not finicky, though. I am just beyond excited to have the opportunity to participate!

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
