Hello, my name is A-dub and I am an addict…

October 23, 2007

…of World of Warcraft! My neighbor, Tyler, is a WOW prodigy and convinced me to try to play the game. Well, long story short, I really like it and now have to force myself to stop playing to eat and sleep…though I still have enough willpower to finish my classwork first! If I get a job soon, I will be saving money to buy a computer that my other enabler, Brent, will build for me!

 School is going well…nothing much to report there…my first mid-term will be next Tuesday…and yes, this is WELL past the midpoint of the semester!

Pray that I can get this teaching job I am up for at Longview College…I really need the money…and no, not just for my WOW addiction!

For those who want to know, I will be back East for Christmas, between Dec. 18 and New Year’s.

In other (random) news, I found out that I now have an adverse reaction to soda…so I am drinking water, juice, and tea exclusively!

The post-Fall-Break post…

October 15, 2007

First off, I got NOTHING done during the break…except sleeping, eating, and going to the Jehovah’s Witnesses workshop…

…which was excellent! I learned so much. I definitely enjoyed Paul Blizard, a former JW and present Southern Baptist pastor – I actually got to take him to the airport Saturday! (thanks, DB!)

Today, I got the go-ahead to write my paper on Matthew 13 (see previous post)…

Nothing else going on…sorry!

The first week of October…

October 6, 2007

…was relatively uneventful:

Monday: came upon the idea for my first academic paper:  a discussion of Matthew 13 as one common line of thought (sorry Dr. Tom.!).

Tuesday: had an uneventful chapel service, but came upon my second paper idea (thanks Dr. And.!) using Exodus 34:6,7 as a guide to understand God’s use of the Law (and His patience) with Israel

Wednesday: had a wonderful chapel service with Liberated Wailing Wall … and let me say for the record, I heart Jews! (and I love my dormmate, Kenny, twice as much!) Also planned a night of playground golf…

Thursday: …which I and some of the dorm guys enacted, followed by euchre at McDonald’s…I HATE(!) the left bower rule! I also spent three hours researching giving and baptisms in Missouri churches…

Friday: …which I later realized was not what I wanted to look for, so I then spent three hours researching giuving and baptism by state convention to the SBC…exciting stuff, I know! Also, everyone departed for Fall Break…except for me and the faithful hangers-on at the dorm…stay strong, my brothers!

For the record, I have put aside my love of historical research for the time being, that is until I finish my bibliography for OT survey!

so I’m a little obsessed with the library these days…

October 1, 2007

…that is why I haven’t blogged for a week (yes, the library has computers, but I have been pouring over old SBC tomes in search of self-fulfillment….yes, I am a freak!)

The week in review:

Wednesday, we found out that the A/C will not be repaired until spring (it will be completed before then, but turned off for winter). It’s not too bad…if you have an uncompromised window like I do (sorry Tyler!)… and the days are getting shorter and cooler anyway.

Other than that, I have no life besides going to class, going to the library for my daily fix (of knowledge!), eating, sleeping and going to church/chapel…sorry, maybe Fall break (next week) will be more exciting!
