believe it or not, it is time for a new entry.
my summer plans have not be clarified, and quite frankly this is starting to distress and worry me. i have the options narrowed down to grand rapids and Appalachia, but am lacking the insight, direction, and discernment to commit to the next step. once again, any prayers or advice would be accepted and welcomed.
how is this for an insightful quote critiquing our society founded on liberalism:
“No, I won’t condemn anyone for putting ketchup on a hot dog. This is the land of the free. And if someone wants to put ketchup on a hot dog and actually eat the awful thing, that is their right. It is also their right to put mayo or chocolate syrup or toenail clippings or cat hair on a hot dog. Sure, it would be disgusting and perverted, and they would be shaming themselves and their loved ones. But under our system of government, it is their right to be barbarians.” –Mike Royko
academic work to complete:
10 page research paper (Lutheran understanding of church and state)
3 page reflection paper
12 page paper for medieval thought (Aquinas, Augustine, and ‘2+2=4’)
15 more days of mini-teaching
3 observations for mini-teaching.
so i will be busy, but not insane.
i have decided to eat pretzels, drink RC cola, and check my mail every afternoon until the end of the semester. look out.
opera tomorrow. come and see two operas that have really grown on me. also, it may be my last concert as a north park cello player.
i am bracing myself for the tidal wave of nostalgia, sentimental emotions, and fear of change that is sure to accompany the close of this semester.
