really old shirt

well, the subject might infer I dont have much to say............. and this is true. I was thinking about how old the shirt I was wearing today is (all sorts of new shirst and i still wear that one, I simply like it) as far as i can figure ive had it since i was 11, which makes it 8 years old.

in much more significant news, the ceiling of the current chapel (not the one their building) has been proclaimed structuraly unsound and all masses are being held in the library for the next 2 weeks.

I finished making plans for thanksgiving on this end (that being the school: namely making sure my work study wont miss me and procuring tranportation to and from the trainstation for the three of us). cant wait to see everybody in San Diego, this is the longest amount of time lucas and i havent played video games together in the last 10 years at least ;)

were reading Galen's "On the natural faculties" in science this week, he reads like something of a cross between an abnoxious salesman, a frustrated teacher and a spoiled little kid. its painfull to say the least. and worse, the topic is an arguement that the kidneys have an inate atraction to urine in order to draw it out of the blood. complete with graphic explenations of the disection of living creatures urinary tracts. yay.

I formated my computers hardrive and rienstalled windows, everybody should do that on a yearly basis (which does require having a data drive seperate from your OS drive) it runs so much better afterwards.

yup, thats all for today, off to do latin homework.

Eclesiasties, Job?

Early in the year a couple of people heard that the theology program at TAC starts by reading eclesiasties (followed by Job). They found this perplexing and were wondering if I knew the reason why. I didnt at the time and I still dont have an official answer. However, I have been thinking about it recently and I think I have a decent idea. Job would make some small amount of sense to start with since many scholars argue that it is, based on time of writing, the oldest book in the bible. This dosnt work for eclesiasties however. My theory is this: There first becuase there confusing.


Yup. Theres a reasoning behind this that is more sound than you might think. No decent investigation is ever made by people who are certain they already know the answers. Eclesiasties and Job both say things in them that at first (and third, and fourth, and fifth...) reading seem to be contrary to some of our views of God and salvation and mans role in the universe. Readin these chapters first puts us into the state a state of mind that is receptive to looking for new understanding; AKA, confusion. Dont believe me? read them back to back.

Hope that makes sense to somebody besides just me. Thanks to all of you who are still reading after my long unblogging period.

Yes, I'm still alive. Sorry to anybody who is still checking this. I would like to post more often but I have been very busy lately (cant believe there are only 3 weeks left in the symester) and I hardly ever make it to the library anymore.

some catching up. I dressed up as burnam wood for holloween ( in mcbeth there is a line that goes something like 'mcbeth shall not die till burnam wood come to dunsinain) so three of us got branches and signs that said "dunsinain or bust".

we had an "algebra enabling exam" a while ago, i dont see why they call it enabling since you have to know enough algebra to do calculus to pass it, thats pretty much the end of algebra for most people... algebra concluding exam. it wasnt that hard though since i took an algebra heavy math class last year. i feel sorry for the poeple who have been out of highschool for 1-3 years. that would be hard. they havnt gotten the grades on those back to us yet.

we also had a paper on the Odyssey. havent gotten the grades on those back either (teachers are busy too, lol)

Martial arts club is going well (i have to leave for it in 4 minutes) we had 9 students last monday. were down to one night a week though. (did i mention everybody is very busy?)

we have another paper due (assigned exactly 8 hours after the last one was due, due thanksgiving weekend) theology.

my cousins jack, rebeka and I are going to my house for thanksgiving weekend. its going to be even more busy after that. we have from wednsay to sunday off (from work study too! yay!) and then we have school monday-thursday. friday is off for the feast of the immaculate conception and next week is exams. after that its christmas break and were all official 1/8th done with our undergrads, wow this is going fast. (because were all so busy!)

well, i have to run, please dont loose hope! i'll post again soon!


P.s. I did 2 math props in a row today!!
