It's strange because it seems like it went by so fast, but when I think of that first week here, it's like remembering something from two years ago. We are fast approaching Christmas, and New Year's will be right around the corner. It's kind of like starting over. A new year, a new semester. We have a Hebrew intensive in January. Over a month of Hebrew, 5 days a week, 6 hours a day, all Hebrew, all the time. Should be fun. I'm kind of looking forward to it actually. We'll have a new professor and there won't be any other classes to distract us. In the Spring semester, I believe we will be using what we've learned to actually translate some parts of the Bible in Old Testament Exegesis. Craziness, craziness, craziness. And of course, we're gonna have to find time for gaming. :-)

Gay Guy in Seminary Day 123 (Semester's End)
By the grace of God, my class and I have completed our first semester of seminary. It was a long and bumpy ride, but we have all grown and learned and I believe we are better people for it. It's funny that 24 hours ago, I wasn't sure I was going to make it to this point, but I managed to remember enough to pass my Church History class. I'm not saying I did well on the final, jut good enough. Some of us went out for a celebratory lunch. I took everyone to the Sunflower Cafe. Gotta do what can to keep that place open, LOL! It's my go-to place when I need to have a few hours of cozy reading; I'll be upset if I lose it. Some of us also went out for some drinks later. Very low key, kind of a reflection of the past few months.
