Thought it is very late in the Alan Household, and I should have been in the Land of Nod quite some time ago, something Elizabeth wrote over at The Garden Window has gotten me thinking. It sure has been a long time since my last post. It is interesting how many people connect with one another via cyberspace, receiving encouragement and comfort from another’s words. I can’t help but wonder what that has to say about the people in our society. Are we that hungry for connections, that lonely in the place where we are that we reach across fiber-optics or whatever to feel a part of a community of sorts? I dunno. It’s worth thinking about.
I’ve been up to my eyeballs in work and classes. My Critical Thinking class is almost over. It is only half a semester long and I’ll be glad when it’s finished. I’ve not enjoyed the professor, the material, or my fellow classmates. Despite this, I’m doing better than I had hoped. I am fairly certain I’ve a solid B for a grade. (Quiz # 1=80, Quiz # 2=80, Mid-term=91). This Saturday will be the last class then the following Saturday will be our Final.
This will allow me to focus more on my Astronomy class. This coming Monday we have our first test, a Mid-term exam. I’ve gotten my study sheets completed, homework assignments completed and am procrastinating on the research paper but have a good outline. I am finding the scentific jargon difficult to remember, as well as all the concepts behind the formulas. Frankly, I just don’t find the stars, moon, etc. interesting. They are beautiful! Don’t misunderstand me. I just don’t care about blackbodies, black holes, and other universes where there may be planets with life on them just like the Earth. I don’t care what an Astronomical Unit is and whether it is bigger or smaller than a Parse. Okay?! Nonetheless, I’m studying and praying I pass the class!
As it is pushing mid-night, I am off to the Land of Nod.
May God bless all as you end (or start) the day the Lord has made!
