I’m trying to figure out what put me in my recent blog-funk. I haven’t pinpointed anything yet. But I am getting to the point were I’m wondering if I will even attempt to ever post again and I should just shut the ol’ blog down. That doesn’t excite me. But neither does writing anything. Blah.
I am very seriously considering starting seminary classes. But before I go through the process of applying, begging for money, etc., I’m trying to make sure I have the time and discipline to succeed in a distance-education program. So, much of my time has been devoted to reading, trying to stay sharp and making sure I can read in the volume that I’m sure my classes will require. All of this while trying to be a youth minister and a good husband to a wife who is in medical school. So far, I’ve done quite well.
Of course, seminary will also require with it a great deal of writing, which, as you can see, I haven’t been doing so well at lately. So, not only will I have to read voluminously while taking seminary courses, I’ll also have to write quite a bit as well. And I’d like to get some of the basics of Greek down before I jump in. Oh, and Noah and Rusty and I have a project we want to work on that will require even more of my time. Oh (yeah, another one), and I want to begin working out a bit. Sheezy.
I guess it’s decided then. If I’m going to do all this seminary business and whatnot, I need to be able to have time to read and write. So, blogging it is. Okay, so by the end of September, I need to be:
- Making enough time for me wife (check; I think… I’ll check with her)
- Reading a book a week (check)
- Keeping the house semi-neat (semi-check)
- Keeping the yard alive (we’ll see how that one goes)
- Exercising in the mornings
- Writing a blog post a week
- Semi-proficient in Greek
- Doing what I need to be doing with my job (check)
