The Countdown - 38 days

I am counting the days until graduation. Little else matters right now. Yes, there are other things going on in my life. Who has time to think on those things, however? The laundry will still be dirty in 38 days. The baseboards of the house will still be dusty. The weeds in the backyard will be 3 feet high and no flowers will yet be planted. But, in 38 days I will graduate. I will have my master's degree and I will be done with school forever and ever....and ever and ever. Did you get that I wrote that I will be done with school forever and ever? I can hardly imagine what I will do with my time. I can hardly imagine not reading pages and pages and pages and pages of theological books. Really, I like reading theological books but not under compulsion. Between this semester and last I purchased FOUR DICTIONARIES ON THE NEW TESTAMENT. Why would one even need to own FOUR different dictionaries on the New Testament? If you need to know ANYTHING on any subject relating to the New Testament really, contact me. I have four dictionaries...I can find the answer. I just finished my NT research paper. I chose to write an exegesis of Galatians 5:1-7. The paper is ok - not the best paper I ever wrote. The topic was fascinating and I will never read the passage the same. One down, one to go -- my OT research paper is due Monday. MONDAY! Sigh...back to work. only 38 more days...

and counting, Jeanette
