Another semester finished and I am beyond relieved. Words of wisdom–start on research papers EARLY! I waited a bit too long to get started on my last three papers of the semester, so I had more late nights (which also means early mornings) than I care for, so next semester I am determined to start on writing assignments from the get go.
It’s so nice to leave my laptop in my office, re-shelve the books that had formed a perimeter wall on my desk, and know that I can go to sleep early tonight (or at least spend the evening watching tv with my wife!).
My break, to some extent however, will be short lived, for I start Theological German Monday. It will be tiresome driving to campus every day, but it’s only a month long and no research and writing, so the load will be easily manageable. I’ll then have an actual summer to be free of the burden of course work, at least until the fall when I will return to the fire hose for a drink–Hebrews and the gospel of Luke. Should be fun, but I’m glad to be done for now!
