Finally, I'm back.

Wow, I haven't posted in 2 months. It was a crazy end to the semester which had me working on other sorts of writing.

My grades came in: 3.75 for the semester - not bad but not outstanding either. I'll have to do better. And I freely admit to having too much fun and not enough study.

Thoughts from the semester:

1. I need more discipline.
2. I need to write more precisely - not my thought, actually Fr. John Behr's instructions.
3. I need to spend more time both with original source material and with current scholarship.
4. I need more dicipline.

Also, I have an amazingly idylic life: I life and study with Orthodox Christians, I am able to attend church at least 12 times per week, I have wonderful friends with whom I do things like knit while they read Flannery O'Connor out loud. My life is amazing. I know I don't deserve this and am thankful that God has blessed me as he has.
