Quick Little Overview

The past two weeks have been good.  The only bad parts are the sections where I have to think about school.

I’m starting to get tired of it.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are the note days.  I hate them.  Calculus 1 looks interesting, I’m just not sure I fully get it.  I do get some of it, but some of it seems to go right over my head.  If I can’t figure something out, I’m get frustrated and just would rather not see it anymore.  He did a review Monday, and so I learned a good bit then (after the one and a half hour mark, you get tired of hearing math, too).  The test tomorrow should be interesting.

Biology.  I think my essay on global warming may go in direct opposition to his beliefs.  I hope he doesn’t count off for that.  We’ll see.  October 10th.

British Literature.  Love the class, hate the essays.  I’ve only done one, and I’ve got to say, I’m going to hate doing the rest of them.  Especially the research one.  He’s a great teacher.  I do hope he teaches us how he wants the essay papers, though.  He’s A+ on the literature side.  That doesn’t happen often.

Biology Lab?  Okay class, kind of pointless at times, but it’s okay.  Probably the only interaction I ever get with people during the day.  People don’t really talk to others at AUM.  Why?  No clue.

The class that’s just a “computer basics” class.  Well, let’s not even go there.  Boring.

Anywho.  I’ve been thinking more lately about things.  I’ll post those sometime later.  I’ll give a brief run down now, I guess …

I’ve been listening to stuff from my previous church (NLC), new church (LWWC), and just various in-betweens (ex: the radio) here lately.  I’ve been getting a lot out of those things too.  My church: brokenness and greatness.  I’ve been learning a lot out of New Life because of their many different services, some of them is: big ideas, stop looking at past spiritual experiences and look to today (I really needed this!), greatness, etc.  A few of them also went hand in hand with what my pastor (Pastor Chris) has been talking about.  All around the same time period too!  Family Life Today on Monday (and though this week, I hear) has been speaking with Tim Kimmel about his book on raising kids for true greatness.  I honestly can’t explain it near as good as he does, but in a few works: celebrate the things kids to for God as much (if not more) than they do at school, work, etc.  God is eternal, those are temporary.  Just a few pointers for myself when I have a kid or two.

That’s all for tonight.  I want to squeeze in another podcast before bed, if I can.
